I've eaten sardines different ways, canned, fresh with heads off and guts out and whole. I think should eat them whole for the full health benefits?

Try Parmentier, they are hands down the best tinned sardines you can possibly eat, they are steamed with herbs and/or chili, the flesh has a just cooked pinkness to it, and they are packaged in EVO!

Canned sardines are one of the cheapest, easiest snacks.

Most fish markets around me have fresh ones for less than $2 per pound. I like to throw two or three into a bamboo steamer (or a regular steamer works) and just eat them steamed and whole.

I still haven't gotten past the ick factor of eating a fish head. I throw them into soup stock. :)

I was eating canned sardines (Wild Planet brand) about once a week then I noticed that Wild Planet also has white anchovies. The taste is a little milder and it's bone-in, so extra calcium. I almost always eat them in a tossed salad. Fresh sounds wonderful...maybe someday.

For me, fresh, mackerel is best. But when I was living in Brazil I had an old lady right under my apartment selling butterflied fresh sardines. Two bucks for a large dinner (4 people) of baked sardines with pepper, olive oil, parsley and garlic. Now that I live in the North, is canned sardines like everyone else.

I made a sardine spaghetti the other day with fresh tomatoes and spiralized squash. Not very good, haha. Very.. sardiney. I like them best over a salad with some vinegar and olive oil, with fresh > canned.

I buy these from Amazon and just eat them out of the can. BPA free, in water so no worries about quality of EVOO, supposedly sustainably caught.

Add some lemon juice and hot sauce and it's perfect. I like Crystal hot sauce as there are only 3 ingredtients (aged red cayenne peppers, distilled vinegar and salt)

I bake mine for 10-15 mins in order to minimise the loss of the valuable omega 3s

I am OBSESSED with Sardines. I purchase Sardines packed in Olive Oil - I haven't figured out which brand is my favorite quite yet... But how I eat them is like this: I throw some frozen squid, mussels and scallops and/or octopus into a skillet with olive oil, cook - and then throw the sardines with the olive oil on top and mix all together (a picture of the delicious). OMG SO GOOD - SO good in fact that I eat it almost DAILY and do NOT get sick of it!

Out the can with a teaspoon, out the can straight onto salad, fresh from the fishmonger, gutted & then roasted, i sometimes eat the heads, always eat the eyes

My fishmonger tends to have fresh mackerel more often and i prefer the milkier taste so usually go for that but i still eat some of those fancy tinned sardines that are steamed with EVO, chili, herbs in them quite often

I eat a brand called "Brunswick" packed in water with skins and guts included, though no heads. I just eat them out of the can. The offal contains vitamins, the bones are a good source of calcium, and the skin provides a better balance of amino acids.

I get some brand from Costco that comes from Morocco in olive oil. I add some sliced tomato, fresh basil (when I have some around), maybe some mozzarella slices, pepper (already salty), or turmeric. Very tasty. Sadly they come heads off, but better than nothing.
