Fresh Whole Sardines

Db Cooper Dec 29, 2010 02:45 PM

I'm making a three course Italian dinner for New Years and would like to serve sardines as a first course. Would prefer fresh ie not out of a can. Any suggestions? Does Coastal have them? Thanks in advance.

      Call Coastal Seafoods (tomorrow, as they are closed on NYE). They should at least be able to tell you where to find them.

            Dang, that's not a bad deal. Are they whole (head and tail on) and gutted? Thanks for the info, there's a few sardine dishes I've been interested in making, but didn't seriously consider them because I didn't think I could find them around here. Awesome!

              Yes they are whole and gutted. I'm defrosting them as I type.
