    I think they have a more mild "fishy" flavor than even tuna. If you get ones in olive oil or water, try draining and rinsing the can before you eat them, perhaps, to make them even more mild.

    Try the skinless and boneless packed in olive oil to start with if your nervous about the bones and skin thing. I buy these by the case from Amazon and think the Cento brand is fantastic--I mash 'em with hot sauce in the can and / or dump them on salad greens. Easy and very tasty.

    I think my biggest problem with any fish is that I'm used to breaded and deep fried (fish fries are a staple in WI). Very little "fishy" taste.
    Yesterday, I made some baked salmon. It was "ok", still a bit of the fishy taste.

    Fresh lemon juice will help with fishiness.

    Thanks, all. I'm going to go for it... soon. I like the boneless, skinless suggestion, and I will definitely disguise with lots of lemon and/or hot sauce!

    Just get your head right; think of them as a delicious and very nutritious food that will nourish you, vs some crazy obstacle you're unsure about.

    I like to use a fork. I find it's less messy.

    Keep some at room temp and put some in the fridge. The cold ones are great as is - I just started doing this to combat the heat and because my fridge has more room in it than do my kitchen cabinets. The room temp ones can be quickly heated in a fry pan and put over scrambled eggs or rice. Mustard, tomato sauce/paste, and hot sauce are all good on sardines. I can't find fresh sardines for less than $16/lb, so I still eat canned (about $9/lb).

    The ones I've had had more of a fishy smell than a fishy taste. It surprised me, actually. They tasted less fishy than canned tuna, for sure.
