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


I love sardines!! love sardines even now as an adult I still eat them out of the can, with a drissle of hot sauce or with chopped napa cabbage raw and a splash of rice wine viinegar on top to cut the oil residue and fresh ground pepper. Yum-Yum

I grew up back east and my mother always gave the children a choice of eating sardidnes, herring,or some type of smoked fish in place of a daily teaspoon of cod liver oil. She line us up and right before we left for school she'd dose us (5) kids with that AWFUL cod liver oil,, in the liqid form. At school you would be distracted the first 2 periods tying to get that taste out of your mouth, Ha, ha..

I like sardines packed in olive oil and mixed with organic brown rice.

I like it with lots of onion, lemon juice and tomatoes.

I fried it in its own oil and eat it on bread, crackers and on rice, so delicious!

How do I get rid of the smell and is there a special brand. I like Brunswick.

I love them straight out of the can! BUT they are good scrambled up w/eggs. Serve w/ buttery grits. Yum. I'm from the south! LOL Sandy Spencer

I LOVE sardines! My favorite way to have them is on saltine crackers with Tabasco.

i've been a sardine lover for most of my life. i'm in my 70's, and was brought up eating them. mostly just the way they come from the can, with a bit of chopped onion or scallion, and a squeeze of lemon. i prefer the skinless/boneless, packed in olive oil...but enjoy them with the skin and bones as well. never tried them with the mustard or tomato sauce....guess i'm a purist!!!!!!

In Spain we BBQ sardines...they are delicious...Try them!!!!
We eat sardines all the time, they are a great source of calcium.

I love sardines. I prefer the little guys in olive oil with the skin and bones on a fresh salad at lunch. For dinner, I will put them in tomato sauce either homemade or a jar puttanesca sauce with spelt pasta. Yum!!

Sardines in mustard sauce, roughly chopped and served inside a baked potato. Maybe some chopped chives or parsley.
