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


I eat them with crackers primarily. I have also used chopped red onions and added a little mustard. I prefer the red onions because the flavor is not as overpowering as the white onions.

I love sardines in mustard on whole wheat toast and make a sandwich with a thick slice of white onion in the middle-yum!!!

Garlic, Olive oil, Lemon and a bit of salt.
Warm it only, Delicious, tasty!

Been eating sardines my whole life.I used to eat them on a kaiser roll with butter and lots of fresh lemon juice.Now I eat them on half a scooped out sunflower seed bagel,butter,just a smear and lots more lemon juice.all my friends thing it's so weird. they don't know what they're missing.A couple of weeks ago I tried making fresh sardines for the first time.Didn't turn out so good.Any suggestions?

Love sardines! My grandfather always had them around as a snack. They are best on crackers,very simple!

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).

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 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.
