Want to try sardines. I don't think I've ever had them before and I'm not a huge fan of fish (apart from tuna), but I like anchovies and it seems like sardines are in the same ballpark, in addition to being healthy and cheap.

Any thoughts? I'm thinking about just starting with canned sardines on some melba toasts. I guess I just eat the contents of the can, I don't need to skin/debone anything? Total sardine virgin here.
>>
I like adding sardines to grilled cheese sandwiches, burgers and pizza! You can add sardines to all your favorite food.

>>
>>7288128
So just open the can, take out the sardines, and throw them into the food? No preparation necessary? You eat the bones? The fins? They don't have heads, right?
>>
There are a few different flavours to choose from. Pretty sure you just eat them straight of the can, but read the instructions just incase.
>>
>>7288152
Make sure to pan fry them first
>>
I just eat them straight out of the can. I'm sure they taste great when actually put on other things though.
>>
i'm allergic but my mom eats them on bagels with cheez whiz with a side of olives and seems to quite enjoy it
>>
>>7288144
Looks nice, basically sardines on toast, which is what I'm planning to try. Thanks.

>>7288154
Doesn't seem to be necessary though, right? For canned sardines, that is.

the oil is cottonseed oil

don't eat it. it's not really safe for consumption. there are some that are packed in olive oil but nobody around here carries them.
>>
>>7288200
So you just break them up with a fork, and then eat them however you want? Looks super easy.

>>7288198
Got it, thanks.

>>7288122
If you've never had sardines, I recommend buying the boneless, skinless sardines to start with. They're just more like fillets (their whole, but without bones and skin). That way you'll get to love the taste, and then you can move on to the whole sardines and you won't care about the tiny bones (which you can eat as well, they're soft from the canning process).

I make a great pasta topping with sardines. Just saute some shallots or onion in olive oil or the oil from the can of sardines, then add some minced garlic and the sardines and mash the sardines to small bits while they saute. Once the garlic and fish is fragrant, add some coarse breadcrumbs, lemon zest and juice, and minced parsley. Toss all that with some linguine or other long skinny pasta, and top with some grated parmesan or romano. It's delicious.
>>
>>7288207
I only get the ones with olive oil and a bit of lemon, they're the cheapest ones around
>>
>>7288213
Pretty much, this brand was flaky like tuna. It is really good though, I'm going to save the rest for tomorrow when I can get some cream cheese. It is not a strong fish taste so if you like tuna you'd like herring.
>>
>>7288218
Thanks for the tips. I love pasta with garlic and olive oil so (assuming the sardine thing works out) this sounds like a great idea.
>>
>>7288229
Excellent. Thanks for the pics!
>>
>>7288227
I've never encountered any that were packed in anything besides olive oil/olive oil + flavorings.

Yeah, sardines are really quite mild in taste. To the point where I kinda find them disappointing to eat on their own.
>>
>>7288259
thats why you gotta spice them up a little bit, crackers/bread, hot sauce, onion, lemon juice,etc
>>
>>7288243
No problem!

This anon speaks the truth.

Those are pretty much the only ones I buy unless I see something new at a specialty store or something lower end is on sale for a really low price.
>>
>>7288265
They work great on saltines with a bit of any variety of hot mustard. Especially if you get them in olive oil.
>>
>>7288122
They look like sprats
>>
>that feeling when you cut open the sardine horizontally with a fork and see its tiny spinal cord
I eat it anyway but it kinda freaks me out.
>>
>>7289090
>I'm so sheltered it freaks me out when I'm reminded that meat is made from animals
>>
If you throw them in hot oil and stir they completely dissolve, including the bones. Great for fried rice or pasta.
>>
This seems like an appropriate thread.

I've got some frozen pizza and want to try them with anchovies.
What brand (in America) should I look for? Are they already cooked before being put in the can?
Can I just pt some on the pizza before heating it up in the oven?
Bones safe to eat?
Do they come with the head and eyeballs and shit? (type of brand might be helpful since I don't want to eat that)
>>
>>7288122
They basically just melt in your mouth. They're not bad at all.
>>
>>7288249
They're also packed in mustard or hot sauce here in the states
>>
Sardines are delicious and ridiculously healthy

They are the only animal/animal product I still eat
>>
>>7289116
jesus christ

anchovies can be eaten raw
either make your pizza and then put them on which is what I prefer

or put them on your pizza before putting it in the oven/mid way through cooking

they don't come with heads.
>>
>>7288122
if you don't like fish try the boneless skinless smoked sardines in oil they are the least fishy

Not necessary. Don't do this OP. Just eat them. Get a few tins as they come in different liquids (oil, water, mustard, hot sauce).

I eat them straight out of the can with saltines and Louisiana hot sauce. Love eating the spines

Kippered snacks might be more up your alley. I recommend getting some morrocan sardines.

Not beach cliff (their fish steaks are good).
Not chicken of the sea.

I eat mine on saltines with mustard and occasionally hot sauce if they're not in spicy oil.

Get King Arthur brand!

The pesticide residue sometimes being found in it isn't safe, not the oil its self. Just sayin'

I like to put them on the pizza right before I eat it on the plate. I also enjoy just pouring the oil on the slice.

The reason i don't like them baked into the pizza is when I've had them that way all I taste is anchovies.

Eat sprats instead... they look like sardines but taste better.

If you get sardines get the expensive ones from Portugal. Cheap sardines are terrible.

Double layer are smaller, and don't fall apart as easy as regular sardines. They also have a milder flavor and the bones/tails are more pleasant to eat.

They just have a "hand selected and packed" feel to them, and can also be eaten in one bite.

You've found sardines packed like that? Whenever I buy those I always realize that it's herring once I open it. Doesn't make any difference though, still taste fine.

>>7288207
>the oil is cottonseed oil
Maybe in America.

In Britain they are commonly:
Sunflower oil
Olive oil
Brine
or tomato sauce.
It also annoys me that people on /ck/ seem to think they taste like Herring (maybe in America they do but not anywhere else)

I don't buy the tins in sauce but after draining the oil/brine I like to throw them on a pile of flavoured Ramen type noodles, for a quick and easy meal.
>>
>>7288122
My favorite brand of the few that I've tried is Cento, about $2.60 a tin. Skinless/boneless which is a bit more approachable for some people, tastes great, and they're also packed really tight so you're not getting a ton of olive oil. I've also tried King Oscar and Crown Prince which are both more expensive. The fish were smaller, milder, and the texture much softer (almost melt in your mouth). Not bad, just different. I've also tried a couple of the Trader Joe's varieties. Those suckers were huge and the cans had like a gallon of olive oil which I don't find useful.

Try them on some crackers with fresh-squeezed lemon juice and a splash of Tobasco (I've tried with regular and habanero, both excellent).
>>
>>7291670
Which brand do you buy? I usually ended up getting John West from Morrisons, since they were quite a good purchase when they were on sale.
>>
>>7288122
get brislings. the big ones are mushy the brislings are texturally leagues better. i prefer them in olive oil. just put on a cracker add dash of hot sauce.

my favorite thing? i make a sardine frittata. sardine, 4 eggs, bit of feta or goat cheese. fucking god tier and loads of brotein
>>
>>7292051
Funnily enough, I bought some more today at Lidls
So it's NIXE brand 39p a tin.
Mackerel fillets 59p . . .. and I got a larger tin of Herring in a Dill and herb sauce for 89p.

I'm a Brit mate, so they are easy for me to get anyway.
That works out as £1.06 - like I said a few posts above I buy them for 39p or 27 cents.

>>7292457
I get em for about $2 a tin at a run of the mill supermarket.. I've tried a lot of different brands and these were really my favorite.. pretty sure they are Moroccan imports and the price may be due to the lack of bones and skin

King Oscar is a pretty good brand if you haven't already gone out and gotten them! I just get some plain white rice and put the sardines over them straight out of the tin with the oil it comes in. bretty gud
