  • Frozen sardines

    At the Asian grocery store they sell packages of large, frozen sardines. The do not appear to have the guts removed. I was thinking they would be good grilled. They are about 9 or 10 inches long, heard and tails on. I assume I should gut them once they thaw. For fish this big and fresh would the bones be edible like the canned ones? How do people typically prepare these?

    Rig them with three or four ganged hooks and float down a trail of chum

      Seriously, fillet, removing the guts, and fry gently in butter

        They also had other smaller whole fish there, maybe something like that would work better. I guess you would need to remove the guts no matter how small it is. It would be nice if the store did that for you. Can't complain for $3 though.

          Here in Spain I buy them fresh and grill them whole. the fish monger recommended I grill them that way because the head and guts have fat which helps keep them from drying out on the grill. Never had them frozen before though.

            If you want to see some yummy looking pics, google "deep fried sardines," and click on the photo gallery that comes up. Those with a glass of red wine at sunset - a one-meal vacation.

            Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

              Yes you have to gut/scale them and no, the bones are hard... I wondered that until I tried. The good thing is the fless peels away from them after cooking and you are left with a complete skeleton like in the old cartoons where you see alley cats fighting over a sardine skeleton

              This video help me clean them easier:

              Other method that includes how to cook:

              Hope it helps.

                When I was on vacation in Portugal they grilled them whole, guts removed but head and tail intact. You eat the flesh and pick out the bones. Very delicious and moist fish.

                        Thanks for the ideas, I may have to pick some up next time I see them and try it. I like the idea of putting a bunch of them on a stick and cooking them over a huge fire, but that will wait until all the fire restrictions end here. When people cook them whole with the guts in for added fat, do they remove the guts before eating it?

                          Grill those puppies up, bones in tact - if you cook them enough the bones will most likely be edible. Of course, don't eat bones if you cannot chew them! We don't need you to choke!
