I've started eating sardines packed in spring water for health reasons (omega-3 oils, relative lack of toxic contaminants, excellent protein source, high levels of calcium, etc). I also find they have an appetite suppressant effect which I like.
While I love Portuguese smoked sardine fillets packed in olive oil, I find the whole sardines (Brunswick) with the bones and internal stuff relatively gross - although much, much healthier. My current strategies include burying them in dijon mustard and hiding them in large green salads ... I'm trying to cut carbs so I'm not sticking them between slices of bread for sandwiches.
So, canned sardine eaters... how do you eat yours and make them tasty?
