Hilary asks: Do you like sardines? If you do, what are your favorite ways to eat them?


I love them with crackers and pork-n-beans. Quick and easy with a can-opener !!

Hell no!!! Disgusting little animal! I am glad there are LESS SMELLY SOURCES OF OMEGA 3!
Even my cat runs away from them.

Hi Hilary, My story on how sardines have effected my life. Twenty-five years ago. The first time my boyfriend Ray (now husband) came to call on me I was sitting on my front porch steps eating sardines right out of the can. He made a big deal about it then and still loves to tell that story now. He said, Gross ! Are you part cat? You must eat just about anything huh?..but you know I love you anyway. Yes I was young, at 16 my hair was silky smooth and my skin was acne free. I'm the 5th of 7 children, I'm from the country and so it must have been the cheapest canned sardines you can buy but I loved them then. He has always hated fish. All these years later He still doesn't want me cooking fish in the house or even eating he front of him or let him know about...if I expect a kiss that day. So haven't had as much fish as I should have had all these years. Get This ! For the past 4 years every night He tells take your fish oil pills. Ugh! I hate them....the next day after I take one I have a metal odor fuming from my armpits it's disgusting ! I've even tried the odor-less ones. Since reading this article I've decided to have fish, fish and some more fish. I won't bring it around him. I'll ask a friend or my daughter-in-law who loves fish to join me once a week for a picnic in the park with sardines, crackers and fresh back in the day! I'm glad I read your article. Thanks for the inspirations to eat more fish, it will be our little secret! Because I'm want my kiss and eat my fish too ! Tammy Mul-len-dore.

A sardine sandwich is a food my Dad enjoyed growing up during the Depression and I have loved that for as long as I can remember. Toasted rye bread, butter, sardines and red onion. Sprinkle some lemon juice on the bread and sardines. Great stuff.

On a cracker with a slice of habanero cheese and "Jamaican Hell Fire Doc's special" sprinkled on top. Then just stuff the whole thing in your mouth. MMMMMMMmmmmmmm

Gosh, I hope this doesn't cause the cost of sardines to skyrocket!! I never even thought about them as a health food, but I'm reading everyone's suggestions. Some are intriguing; I turn my nose up at some, but - hey! - that's life. Thanks everyone!! Barb K., Wilmington, DE USA

I open a can of sardines and put them in a bowl with vinegar and different types of mustard each time. This adds flavor and also, I use saltines crackers with this. This makes a super night snack and is healthy for you.
