I would like to send a big THANK YOU to whoever posted the advice on here about the skinless, boneless, packed in olive oil sardines.  I must admit to some trepidation, but I bought some and had them tonight for dinner and they are wonderful!  So great to find a canned alternative to tuna, another fish to add to the menu!

Very glad to see I'm not alone here in my love of good sardines!     If you ever get the opportunity to sample fresh grilled sardines...  
Quoted from Averno


The difference between Season brand sardines and the 6 or 7 other brands I've sampled, is night and day. Get the skinless, boneless in olive oil (green and yellow packaging). Taste like really good Italian or Spanish canned tuna in oil. Better.

I eat them every few days with brown rice crackers. Plain out of the tin.  Fabulous!

Another sardine lover here also.  I sometimes mix in to soups, and other times use them with salads or veggies.  I always feel healthy when I've had some

Sardines are so variable.  I have not learned to cook with them, but eat them on compliant toast or crackers.
There is a type of cracker made from almond flour and sesame seeds, recipe by Elana Amsterdam. I have added dulse as a seasoning. Nearly all ingredients are diamonds for me.
I highly recommend the crackers with the particular King Oscar sardines that have black olives.

I buy Crown Prince Skinless and Boneless sardines and don't cook with them.  My favorite way to eat them is a sort of 'salad'.
1 can sardines, drained and mashed
1/2 C frozen green peas, steamed
1 large or 2 small stalks of celery with strings removed;  minced
Other seasonings or vegetables can be added, but this is my "fast food" as it is.

Toss together with 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil

King of the Sea sounds like a good company, but I don't like to eat smoked food.

WOW, I didn't realize it says lightly smoked on the package...Will have to ask Dina Khader why she chose to sell this brand in her office store given she doesn't generally sell any products that would
be considered toxic.  WIll have to go back to another brand.  Just that the taste of these sardines
was awesome. I don't want to eat smoked food either.  Thanks for pointing this out.

I buy Looks Atlantic Sardines, delicious yet they are smoked.. Ingredients just sardines and salt.  I figured if they are smoked over wood that would be alright, probably not though.  They taste clean, don't leave a smoky flavor in my mouth, I don't like that or the added "smoked flavor".
Is smoking a chemical process? Why is it not preferable..

Unfortunately, beneficial as these may be for me, they have never appealed.
Years ago, I solicited suggestions as to best ways of making sardines palatable to those who have not liked them.
Now we've got a new crop of Forum participants - so - since you're all a bunch who loves sardines, please feel free to include recipes for sardines that fit this bill, too, if it's not too much trouble.
Thanks.

That would be great. I like the "Wild Planet" brand, but I still have to just dive in and eat them knowing they are good for me, I don't really like them. I've tried all kinds too.

I'm still searching for what, to me, is the perfect sardine.  What I want is skinless, boneless, unsmoked, packed in Extra Virgin Olive oil and seasoned with sea salt.

Wild Planet is an awesome company that I have great respect for.  I used to buy their wild salmon regularly until I learned to prepare it the way I like it.  I like that their skinless, boneless sardines are packed in Extra Virgin Olive Oil and they use sea salt, but their sardines are smoked.  I don't like the smoke flavor and am also concerned that smoke is carcinogenic.

All the brands in stores around here (and there are many) have something I don't like about them.  They are either smoked, still containing skin and bones, packed in water (too tough and dry for me) avoid oils or regular olive oil, or have table salt added.

Crown Prince is the closest I have found for good tasting, skinless, boneless sardines.  However, they use plain olive oil instead of extra virgin and they use regular salt.  I drain them as thoroughly as I can and add a bit of my own EVOO.

Man, I wish that I could eat sardines! They are a diamond for me, but I have such a time digesting them even with enzymes. I do well with my diamonds cod and salmon But...it would be so convenient to pack sardines for camping trips!

I buy the Season brand of sardines,skinless and boneless in olive oil, because that's what Costco carries and that makes them the cheapest sardines available. Before I found them at Costco I was buying the kind with skin and bones because those were the cheapest, plus they provide calcium. Now I'm spoiled by the skinless, boneless kind (they ARE tastier.) I eat about 5 cans a week, usually just dumped over a  bed of greens with some other veggies added (usually red onion and avocado) with lemon juice on top.

I've also made sardines into sardine salad by mashing and adding spices (red pepper, dry mustard, onion,  garlic, sometimes dill instead of the mustard) and lots of lemon juice. When eating the kind with bones, I always use that method.

I've said this before, sardines make me almost gag. I occasionally eat them out of a sense of duty. To me, the boneless ones are a lot less nutritious. I really have to stick to tuna and fresh or (usually) frozen fish which is a shame.

Actually - this gives me an idea.
Anyone ever try folding a tiny bit of mashed sardine into a tuna salad?
Then - maybe next time adding a touch more sardine if it was well tolerated?
That sorta thing...

There's a whole website called "the Sardine Diet" out there now....plenty of tasty recepies including pizza....just google

I have to kiss my nice, cheap smoked sardines and smoked kippers goodbye now. I love smoked kippers but don't want to have to make my body work a whole 24 hours just to process the delectable carcinogen flavor out of me...........

I like to buy frozen whole sardines and bake them with just a little cooking spray!
The fat they render is negligible compared to Trout. HOWEVER most frozen sardines are not gutted! DO NOT COOK WITH LIVERS INTACT people in your house will puke after the baking is done, and you may as well throw the fish to the cats it will be so incredibly smellsome and mess up the flavor of the flesh.
