    I eat them out of the can also, all the while my cats chase me around the house for a bite.

    Sardines are becoming my go-to protein on lazy nights. Since my previous post, I have put sardines over rice, and I've put them on top of scrambled eggs. The rice I figured would be fine, but I thought the eggs might be weird. It was very good, kind of "I'll have protein with a side of protein" good. For the rice, I used the whole can; for the eggs, I drained the can.

    Also, if you like salty things, I just found Goya Sardines in Tomato Sauce. Delish by itself. It comes in a larger oval can, and I've only eaten half the can, but I'm thinking that dumping that on top of cooked rice or some Brazilian cheese bread would be awesome. I also got some sardines in water because I want to start playing around in my kitchen with different ways to use them - I'll post if anything post-worthy comes from my experiments.

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

    Wrap them in bacon, and bake them in the oven until the bacon is cooked.

    Here's my favorite sardine snack -- sardines, on nut-thin crackers, with a dab of sriracha sauce on top. Delicious.

    Lunch; yesterdays stir fry veggies, or a half packet of good frozen veggie mix. Steam in the microwave at work, drain off the liquid. Open your tin of sardines and toss in with the veg. Add some soy sauce/tamari, sesame oil, a splash of lime and some chili, heat for a bit longer. Simple, quick, tasty, yum. Although my business partner does accuse me of eating cat food when I do this.....

    Yep, wrapped in bacon is great, although I fry them.

    Shredded and mixed with some diced tomato, peppers and onion, A bit of lemon juice, a bit of olive oil, salt and pepper... and I usually use endive's leaves as a spoon. Crunchy and fresh!

    Pd. I used to be able to buy as many fresh sardines as I wanted for a ridiculously cheap price in my home town... now I miss them sooooo much ;__;

    If your sardines are raw, you could try this Mediterranean dish called "bouillabaisse" (many different recipes out there).
    If they are pre-cooked and swimming in oil (hopefully olive oil), eat them straight from the can.
    I prefer to buy mine in glass jars though, swimming in organic olive oil. I can base my meal just on sardines like that

    I eat them out of the can as a snack or for lunch, usually.

    You can also make a really good, easy 'pasta' sauce with them. To do this, I take about a tablespoon or two of the olive oil from the can (assuming you got ones canned in olive oil) and saute a bunch of minced garlic - like 4-5 cloves at least. Add chopped fresh tomatoes - or a can or two of tomatoes - and cook for about five minutes. Mince up the sardines and add those. Add some cayenne pepper and let it all cook down for awhile until the sauce is thick. Add salt and pepper to taste. You can put other fresh herbs in too, if you have them on hand - olives or capers might be a good addition, too. I eat it over spaghetti squash, or you could poach a couple of eggs in the sauce and eat it that way.
