      you lucky duck!!! i can only dream about having h-mart here. what a great store. but there isn't one here in cinci. there are barely any korean restaurants here.........you know......the wonderful midwest. i went to h-mart for the first time in march, when i was in dallas, which has the 2nd largest korean population in the country. i was in heaven. (in h-mart, NOT dallas!) maybe i'll check out the huge international store here (jungle jim's), even though it's like 30 miles away.

        King Oscar rocks.

        I'm eating sardines 2-3 times weekly now. Just eat them right from the tin.

          Any ways of cooking them for more flavor variety? Sardine cakes?

            I had this for breakfast this morning:



            A little fat melted in a pan (I had some lamb fat!), added chopped fresh collards (could use any leafy green or even shredded cabbage or broccoli), popped a can of sardines, tossed in, and then added pesto. I think it took all of 10 minutes and it was really good, but if you can't handle it for breakfast, it would make a nice lunch.

              I don't think that Laquer is Primal, I doubt Grok ate it.

                  Thanks Stevoreo! That's good to know about collard greens and acne. Why is that?

                    I think that in Scandinavia they eat sardines on bread with lots of BUTTER. Mmmmmmm....Scandinavian butter!

                      foil is the answer

                      i understand foil envelopes like the ones tuna come in now do not have BPA. Some sardine vendor should jump on that and grab that niche right away. In fact that would be good for canned salmon too. I'd pay more to get them without BPA. I've been eating brunswick sardines as a compromise on price/quality. Sometimes the Brunswicks are too big, or too mushy, or even too fishy, though that's rare. I like the olive oil ones, and the jalopena. I'd like to see the jalopena sardines in olive oil instead of soy oil. The soy Omega 6 may negate the Omega 3 in the sardines. I like to make a sandwich with hot sauce, and very thinly sliced raw garlic, sometimes sweet onion. When they get over a certain size, I tend to remove the backbone, though I know its healthier to leave it in.

                          Brunswick and other brands by Bumble Bee are NOT BPA free. I just received an email and they simply say that per the FDA the amounts in canned foods are safe. They wrote "We have been in contact with our can manufacturers and they indicate that in agreement with The Food and Drug Administration, the levels of Bisphenol-A present in canned food poses no threat to human health. " You can inquire further emailing to Bumble Bee Consumer Affairs at: ConsAffairs@bumblebee.com

                              Hmm. Maybe they have changed to using BPA since I received my email reply back in 2010. Here is what they told me at that time (16 August 2010):

                              Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to respond to your concerns regarding our Brunswick Sardines in Spring Water.

                              No, it does not as the can is made of aluminum, only when the product is canned in a steel metal container a anamel coating is apply inside the can.

                              Thank you,
                              Bumble Bee Consumer Affairs

                                damn, looks like you just can't escape it! However for those of you living in the UK check out Waitrose's fish bar: sometimes they sell four large sardines for less than a pound!
