How do you eat sardines?
I just bought some in a tin because apparently they are the best fish to eat. How do I eat them? Straight out of the tin? I am not really a fan of fish but I do try to eat it.
you must have read the Eating Well magazine article ;)
yes, many of us do enjoy them straight out of the tin - happens to be one of my favorite snacks. HOWEVER, given that you said you're "not really a fan of fish," i wouldn't recommend this approach for you because sardines are quite fishy. i'd suggest taming them with a sauce or other ingredients to acclimate yourself to the flavor. they pair really well with tomato or mustard sauces...and a generous hit of acid (vinegar or lemon juice depending on the other ingredients) can help offset the pungency and oiliness.
take a look at these threads to get some idea of the different ways people eat them:
Straight out of the can...or dumped into a plate.
A little Louisiana Hot Sauce is good here and there.. as is a good pepper sauce.
Hoop Cheese, Saltine Crackers, and Vidalia Onions round out the repast....
