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


Love Sardines!

I usually prepare roasted garlic in olive oil, use 1 or 2 cloves of the garlic, 1/2 cup olive oil with 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar, emulsify the vinaigrette, add freshly ground pepper, chop and warm the boneless/skinless sardines in the microwave for 30 seconds and have them on a Carr's peppercorn table water cracker or Carr's cheese crackers. Delicious!

I love sardines on crackers with horseradish.

I always look for tins of two layer small "brisling" sardines, in plain olive oil. Not always easy to find!
I drain off the oil and put them on a small plate. Then I add either poupon mustard and sweet relish on the side, or sweet mustard or sweetened horseradish sauce and eat with a fork. Sometimes I add chopped onions or just lay out a couple of green onions. I like lightly smoked herring the same way.
Half a can is usually just right per person, so this serves two of us.

I love sardines. My favorite way to enjoy them is on whole wheat toast with some Dijon mustard. Best sandwich ever.

I haven't gotten the nerve to try them yet in my 65 years. Crunching into bones kills my appetite and the taste of fish skin turns my stomach upside down, so it would definitely have to be the boneless/skinless variety if at all.

hi I like sardines in mustard sauce on toasted bread with onion and a bit more mustard. My dad introduced this to my brother and I when we were kids. I still love it just as i described.

Thank you,

I grew up eating herring in a can so sardines are just "okay" to me. I wonder if kippered herring is just as healthy as sardines. Either way all fish is good fish to me almost. I even eat sliced anchovies on top of my caesar salads occasionally (they can be a bit salty though).
