    So, I just bought some sardines...

    Primal Fuel
    and I don't know what to do with them. I've never eaten a sardine or even looked at one before. I think I'm even a little scared to open them. I was happily buying my wild caught salmon, and there on the shelf next to them were sardines. Many people here have mentioned that they are a great food, so hey, I might as well try them, right? Okay, so they are wild caught sardines packed in olive oil. Do I dump them on a salad and eat them up? What else can I do with them?

    I eat them plain out of the can and savor every layer of flavor.

    Put them on a salad if you want, stuff them inside an awesome omelette, sauté them really quickly with some veggies for a quick hit, or just eat them plain.

    Use your imagination!

    Hot sauce is an amazing addition if you eat nightshades.

    I love them so much. I order from vital choice and they are delish.
    Hot sauce adds loads of flavor, also chop up a homegrown tomato,
    add a bit of homemade mayo, sweet onion, cuke slices, all on lettuce,
    soooo tasty and healthy.

    Mash them into a paste and spread them onto thin slices of cucumber.

    I'm sure they're great, I just can't get myself to eat them for some reason...

    Straight out of the can with sriracha sauce on top!!! Set the scene, light some candles and celebrate the moment because you're about to eat the most nutritious food you've ever had

    Put them on a plate and squeeze the juice from half a lemon on top. They really are less "fishy" than they smell or give the appearance of. I like the "Wild Planet" brand. I bet the hot sauce idea above would be very good.

    I can eat canned tuna in a pinch no problem, but for some reason I can't gain the courage to peel open a can of sardines.
