The fresh, tangy elements of a Greek salad--tomato, cucumber, feta, olives and lemony vinaigrette--pair well with rich-tasting sardines. Look for sardines with skin and bones (which are edible) as they have more than four times the amount of calcium as skinless, boneless sardines. If you're lucky enough to have fresh sardines available in your supermarket, try them in place of the canned sardines. Lightly dredge them in salt-and-pepper-seasoned flour and sauté them in a little olive oil. Serve with: Warm pita bread and a cold beer.

I do risk assessment of chemicals and have worked with several women of childbearing age who want fish that is good tasting relatively cheap high in omegas low in contaminants and sustainable. Sardines are the best in all categories. I take this recipe double the sardines and fry and crumble them in a frying pan to make them extra crispy and crumble size. They act more like a spice a very tasty spice than a big hunk of sardine. My college age kids and wife love this salad. Serve it chilled. Use cherry tomatoes if you don't have garden fresh. Read More
