    Sardine Recipes

    Primal Fuel
    I do like me some canned sardines, but I'd mostly eat them on a sandwich with avocado (since given up bread) and sauteed up over pasta (since given up pasta). I'm sort of stumped as to what I can make with them, usually don't have that problem!

    Any ideas? Haven't seen them featured all that much on paleo blogs/sites so they might be overlooked!

    First idea that comes to mind is to make them the featured protein in a BAS.
    Are you a college student, trying to navigate college while being Primal? Do you know any other PB college students on a tight budget? Heck, for that matter, are YOU trying to live Primal on a budget? Enroll at Primal University!

    I was in a rush the other day so ate mine straight out of the can, mashed them, sprinkled on salt & pepper. And lived to tell the tale.

    I'm afraid I've little creativity here: I eat them out of the can, smushed up with a dollop of spicy brown mustard.
    Started PB late 2008, lost 50 lbs by late 2009. Have been plateaued, but that thing may just be biting the dust: more on that later.

    ditto. Or with a drip-drab of Vietnamese fish sauce.

    I often eat them just plain. Sometimes with a few pieces of seaweed, sesame seeds and tamari. Before I really started liking them, I'd make something akin to tuna salad. Mix the sardines with chopped celery, onion, mustard, mayo, etc.

    Right out of the can or rolled in lettuce leaves with avocado. That is how I eat liverwurst also. Rollups work well as a sandwich substitute.

    Both the options you described (sandwich or pasta toppings) would work just fine over a pile of salad greens (add other salad stuff such as onions, tomatoes, peppers, cucumber, pine nuts etc according to what you have available/what you eat/taste) with maybe an EVOO and balsamic dressing.

    Last week I fried up some sardines with bacon, baby plum tomatoes and onion and then mixed it all together with a couple of soft boiled eggs and some hot sauce and sprinkled with a little grated cheese. I ate it from a bowl with a fork and it was delicious!
    I find most things that I used to enjoy on bread or pasta are equally delicious on salad or just eaten with a fork

    I mash the sardines and mix them with chopped mint, mayonnaise and smoked paprika. That's one of my staple lunches.
