    Sardines

    Hello...

    Wondering how sardines taste. I almost bought some today, but I thought I get some input here first. I would like to try them... just wondered how many of you like them and are they really fishy tasting?? Also, what do you do with them??

    There is a definate fish taste to them, and are a touch on the oily side. I *used* to love them on buttered toast, but thats out now. LOL! I usually just eat them with a salad. It's an aquired taste.

    I chop them up and scramble them in with my eggs and some lemon pepper. Very yummy! I also scramble in smoked oysters or mussels.

    I LOVE sardines--used to eat them on crackers--now just straight from the can. I definitly prefer the ones packed in oil rather than water. They are "fishy", but very good.

    I buy these:
    Crown Prince Natural Skinless & Boneless Sardines in Pure Olive Oil, 3.75-Ounce Cans (Pack of 12)
    http://www.amazon.com/Crown-Prince-S...dp/B000EEWZF0/

    They are less fishy than tuna, and I love them! Plus they're wild caught, and boneless! I usually eat them on a big ass salad, adding the oil and all. Yum!

    I like to make them similar to what Alton Brown did for his weight-loss but instead of bread I'll make a coconut flour tortilla. Mix them in with avocado, lemon, .... here you go-

    Sardines are fishy. And oily. And filling in a good avocado-y sort of way.

    I usually just eat them straight out of the tin because I used to eat them on crackers.

    I did make an exceptional quickie seafood chowder the other night with some sardines packed in tomato sauce thrown into a pretty standard chicken vegetable soup. Gave my soup a punch of fat and calcium and I was quite pleased with it.

    I don't usually eat them with anything special anymore. They're usually my go to for something where I am hungry but I am feeling lazy to make anything. Aside from my soup the other night, I've never really put them in anything or done anything else besides just eat them plain.

    I love sardines as my go to food at work if I don't have time to bring anything else. I only get the boneless, skinless in olive oil kind. I eat it straight out of the can or with a salad and they have 2000mg of omega 3 per can.
