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


Love them - have eaten them '' all my life''.

Straight from the tin, in tomato sauce.
On buttered whole-wheat toast.
In any salad,

Sardines mixed with tofu spread ,hummus or cream cheese is amazing and cuts the fishiness a bit. Also sardines out of tin with lots of lemon very satisfying. Great article!

Garlic. Pine nuts. Raisins. Bread crumbs. Sardines. Fresh Pasta.

Toast garlic in olive oil. Add Pinenuts. Toast mixture. Add raisins. Add drained sardines. Cook and mash with a fork. Bread crumbs to thicken. Add cayenne to taste. Can add diced cherry tomatoes as garnish.

Toss with cooked fresh pasta. Takes as long as it takes to boil water and the pasta to cook. I can do it under fifteen minutes and always get compliments.

Sardines!!!!! From Sardinia!!!!! ;-)

Seriously, while I've eaten them often, they'd never been a steady part of my diet, because while I knew they were good for me I didn't know until recently just how much so.

Mixed with chopped onion and Miracle Whip or horseradish sauce, then spread on whole grain bread or eaten with crackers -that was the way I used to go, but now I'm looking to expand and "de-Whip" my spratly horizons! ;-D

When I was a child (family of 9 kids), we used to eat kippered snacks from a can on soda crackers as a snack (kippered herring). I continued to eat these into adulthood although many co-workers screamed when I opened them up for lunch (they are quite stinky). They are delicious! I like them better than sardines.

half of a teaspoon of oil - sautee onions and peppers on very low heat, add sardines, turn off heat and garnish with green onions, then serve on bread.

I like to mash the sardines up, mix with mustard and spread them on saltines, and munch. Sounds gross, but dont knock it till you try it.
