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


Hilary, As a child, I used to watch my dad make sardine sandwiches with sliced onions, and remember the awful smell. Since I learned how healthy they are for you, I do eat them once in a while. l eat them with shrimp sauce to hide the taste. Last week I tried mixing miracle whip with the sardines, (I take out the bones) and spread it on whole wheat bread. It was ok; I just need to experiment a little more. The next time I will add dyjon mustard and diced onions to the miracle whip, which I do when I make tuna or salmon salads. I look forward to reading more suggestions from your readers.

I eat sardines right out of the can. When I was young, my grandmother use to open a can at night while watching TV and we would share them. Never ate them any other way.

Hi there - I love sardines. I live in italy, currently, and we can even get fresh sardines. They are great off the grill. Sometimes they also show up in the frozen food section. Unprocessed (eg canned) is even better! They have a special taste (some people might need to get accustomed to, do not smell or taste very fishy.

In the phils the common way would be with rice. Sardines in tomato sauce are sauteed with garlic and onion with a dash of pepper. you can add chopped vegetables, like green beans, or julliened cabbage or bokchoy.
