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


I love sardines! I had no idea they were good for the heart. So I will be eating them more often as I recently had a heart attack.

I love eating sardines w/hot grits, cheese and hot sauce, Has to be FRANKS hot sauce, LOL!
Sardines in mustard sauce is delish too!. I like eating sardines w/crackers too. thats a great snack too!

With a fork--straight from the can, or on brown (Hovis) bread-&-butter.

Just right out of the can!!! I have never tried them in a recipe - my grandpa turned me on to eating sardines when was very young, and I remember sitting in their kitchen with some crackers, cheese, and and an open can. I think that's the best way for someone to get to know these yummy little flavor powerhouses!

I like them plain, right out of the can. I used to eat a lot of these when I was young and have kind of let my taste for them fall by the wayside. They are very good. I will have to get a can and start eating them again. I used to eat the skin on with bones but I think I would like the skinless and boneless better.

Sardines are some of my favorite fish, I like mine mashed with some hot sauce and then put on a slice of whole wheat toast, toast under a grill till hot, yummy... happy eating, Cara.

Lov'em! I marinate fresh diced red onions in white or cidar vinager for about 20mins. I add the onions to the sardines with 1 clove of freshly grated garlic and salt & pepper to taste... that's it! I may add some other herbs such as oregano, dill, cayenne pepper, etc...
I also may add about a teaspoon of the left behind vinegar to the mix, and eat with toast or crackers! Delicious!

I love them straight, bones and skin, i skin them myself the eat the skin by itself. then when im done with that i take the fish, put it on some bread, and eat it. The bones add a great crunchy feeling, you know like eating stale saltine crackers.

In a FlatOut wrap, first put mustard on all of it, then add baby spinach and crunch up a whole can of sardines and on top add a sliced tomato and then some broccoli slaw on top and roll up and serve a knife and fork with a glass of dark cold grape juice. Yuuum. Rena Barlow
