    I like them with banana peppers and a little salt.

    I only eat the ones in tomato sauce when mashed into a paste. They used to be a good sarnie filling, but not sure what I'd eat them on now. Plain sardines straight from the tin? Yup, had a tin a while ago. I'm not really a great lover of bones and scales, so I wasn't sure I'd like them, but I was hungry and thought it would be a good snacking option at the time. I didn't notice the scale or bones because they're completely soft. Just plenty of good tasty fish.

    I'd happily eat them mixed into a salad - break them up with a fork so you're getting small bites mixed in and you probably won't notice them.

    What I really miss is whitebait, but it seems I have to order them delivered and as they don't fit into my current 1 meal a day eating plan, I'll leave it for the moment.

    The quality of the canned sardine is very important! Brand vs brand there are huge variations on what a quality sardine is.

    I think the best quality sardine out today is from Costco in the greenish label. Skinless and boneless in olive oil. Not the cheapest, but just a wonderful snack.

    In fact I had two tins(cans) for dinner with deli mustard on top. Along with lima beans, a huge salad from our garden, and a couple watermelon slices for desert.

    Mmmm good and easy!

    Yum, love the Wild Planet sardines. I have them on auto-deliver from Amazon - they are skinless, but have crunchy little spines that I don't mind at all. Gruesomely delicious!

    I go through a whole box every week. The day is not complete if I haven't had my can of Wild Sardines from Costco.

    A few years ago we went on a vacation to Portugal. They have absolutely perfected the consumption of sardines, what a heavenly place. One night I had fresh grilled sardines at a lovely outdoor restaurant by the moonlight in Albufeira. The sardines were the size of small trout. *salivating*

    I've found that sardines from Portugal or Spain taste the best. A good brand found in many regular supermarkets is Palacio de Oriente. Avoid ones that say "product of morocco" as they tend to be lesser quality. Iberian/Mediterranean Sardines are fishier and have more of a tuna taste. I prefer that, but some people like the smaller, more neutral tasting Brisling sardines from the North Sea. King Oscar is a good brand for that. Their cans are BPA free too.

    Be careful of packages that say "olive oil" on the front. Sometimes when you read the ingredients you find that yeah, they do use olive oil, but they also add soybean oil. King Oscar Skinless and Boneless are guilty of that in fact (the regular King Oscar EVO are EVO only on the other hand). But why get skinless and boneless in the first place? You are throwing out some of the healthiest parts of the fish when you do that!
