Sardines?

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
I have about 5 packages of sardines in my pantry. Problem is I've never had sardines in my life So what the heck do I do with them? Anyone have any ideas especially for a 3 year old?

Some people like them made like tuna salad. Since the whole mayo thing though...

I like mine mashed (bones too, for the minerals) and mixed with minced onions. Not the kind of lunch where you go kiss your DH afterwards but it's quite filling in many ways, especially with good bread.

I am not too partial to the kind in tomato sauce but some of my friends swear by it. I like the ones in olive oil best.

DH puts them on bread whole and eats them that way, or eats them with a salad. I prefer to mash mine on bread.

DS (almost 2) will happily eat them if we give them to him whole, I think he likes how they are cute little fish. Have you tried just giving one to your three year old?

I like to eat them with a fork

I've loved sardines since I was a kid though.

I also like them mixed with tomato sauce and on spaghetti squash.

YUMMY

I get the kind in olive oil. Just put them on a plate, douse them in raspberry vinegar and eat them. Yum.

I used to eat them over at my grandparents house on crackers with mustard on top

I think I'd have to mash them. DD is in that stage where if it looks weird it is gross. She is so anti fish right now. Guess I didn't serve it enough when she was younger and eating it right up.

I LOVE sardines....always have (Thank you MOM!).

I can eat them straight out of the can, and that is how I do it now. I used to eat them on saltine crackers...yum! But I can't really do crackers anymore , so it is straight out of the can for me.

My DS1 used to love them the same way, now won't touch them. DS2 is liking them, I just have to keep him going on them.

My DH grew up eating sardines in Thailand, and I've slowly learned to love them. I like the kind in tomato sauce with chili the best- they seem the least "fishy" to me. I'm not a fan of the ones soaked just in oil, but if I drain the oil off and add some salt, I can eat them on a cracker. I haven't tried cooking anything else with them :

You sometimes can find sardines packed in water. They taste like tuna.

But as soon as my Dollar store started getting these, it stopped.

I mixed them with mayonnaise. My WFS has three kinds of mayonnaise and I get the one based on safflower oil. It doesn't have soy.

I feed them to my cats. It's less processed than most canned cat food, depending on the brands.

I have a memory of really liking sardines when I was very young- like before age 5. Infact, they were the only fish I liked. I, too liked how they were little fish. We ate them straight out of the can. My Mom would just open the can and her, my brother and I would wolf them down whole.

Then I suddenly stopped liking them and haven't tried them since. I need to again.

I mix them up with salad and add lots of garlic powder. I've never tried the kind in olive oil; I've only eaten the kind in tomato sauce.

Yeah, like that. With or without mustard. A drop of hot sauce on them. Or not.

You could marinate them with some onion, balsamic vinegar, mustard, olive oil, capers, parsley. Then put them on crackers.

This thread has totally inspired me to eat some sardines.
You guys shoulda seen the look DH gave me when I opened the can. The cat wouldn't leave me alone until I gave her some too. Ah fun times.

I was inspired by this thread to buy some at WF. I got the kind in tomato sauce since I've tried the kind in olive oil and was less than impressed. I wish I was given them as a child so I would like them now! I'm figuring out how to eat the new package. Maybe over brown rice noodles with tomato sauce? Hmmm.

On a side note Dr David Williams said that the Blue Galleon Sardines are the best brand to eat.

Cant remember his reasons off hand.
