    How to eat sardines?

    Shop Now
    While I like deep fried fish, and managed some baked salmon yesterday (it was OK), I wonder how sardines would taste, and how do you prep/eat them?

    While browsing the grocery, I took a look at them and the various packings. Olive oil and tomato sauce sounded appealing, but I've never actually had sardines before.

    Canned sardines can be eaten right out of the can.

    My usual is a little strange but I love it:

    I just eat 'em from the can (or cool new pouches I just found). I like them better than tuna.

    My favourite stew for fish in tomato:
    100-300g broccoli
    100-300g potatoes
    1-2 carrots
    1-2 onions
    200-400g fish in tomato
    Boil the veg, drain some of the water, add the fish, salt and pepper. Simmer until the fish is heated. Nom!
    Works best with roast potatoes and carrots, though, so I usually make one the day after roasting-day.

    I couldn't agree more. I buy the wild sardines from Costco and eat them right out of the can on a daily basis with a good squirt of sriracha sauce on top.

    What do they taste like? Are they super fishy? I just can't seem to get the nerve to try them but would love to acquire a test for their health benefits and simplicity.

    Canned sardines are usually lightly smoked. But they definitely have a fishy quality to them, how could they not? But it's not a stinky fishy, more like a cooked fishy aroma. The oil also lends its flavor the the product. If you can, go for it. It's up there with the absolutely best things you can ever eat.
