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


I like to eat sardines with little bit fried onions with crushed garlic. green,red and yellow pepper, broccoli,egg plant,cauliflower,mushrooms and add tofu and add crushed whole black pepper and little bit of salt.

Ways I like sardines:
Saute onions in a little coconut oil until they are just lightly browned. Pour beaten eggs with tiny amount of water added over onions. When eggs are almost done (actually they are scrambled eggs) stir in a can of chopped up sardines. I like the ones with Louisiana hot sauce but they are all good.

I also like them prepared exactly as above only instead of eggs, saute vegetables (frozen or fresh and almost any kind you like). When they are ready to eat, stir in a chopped up can of sardines. Season with salt, pepper, curry powder, herbs, whatever you like.

Salads are most healthy and best diet option meals one can have. I always prefer lots of veggies in my salad. And the sardines are also a good ingredient to add in the salads.

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...

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

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..

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.
