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


Thanks, I was a little anxious about trying some sardines with bones and skin, but I like what you said about the calcium, so I'm gonna give it a shot.

in a fresh bread sandwich
how do you serve them as a main meal?
other than toasted sandwiches!

I love sardines on wheat crackers with lots of Tabasco sauce, sirachi sauce, or old-fashioned Louisiana hot sauce. Today I'm going to try sardines on crackers with cream cheese and black bean Pico de Gallo. Looking forward to lunch!

My favorite Greek recipe with Sardines is in the oven. You put 2 lbs cleaned and gutted Sardines, head off if you prefer, in a pan or oven safe dish, with 1 grated or pureed yellow or red onion, 3 cloves crushed garlic, and 4 grated medium vine tomatoes, add white wine and chopped parsley to taste. Let it bake uncovered at 180 Celsius for 30 minutes.

I'm a non cook! My kids and I love to have them on hot buttered toast... just out of a can. I'll try to find fresh ones..

I avoid anything packed in cans; can you purchase them in other packaging?

Hi Hilary,

I keep it simple with low sodium saltine crackers, Ritz (garlic), etc. I just consumed a tin of Sardines packed in Olive Oil with green spiced chiles...Mmm Mmm! Laughing Cow cheeses also spread on a cracker topped with sardines. Or, Mom's homemade pepper jelly...cream cheeses...endless possibilities depending on the tastebuds...
