Sardines are a group of several types of small oily fish related to herrings, and were named after the island of Sardinia, where they were once found in abundance.
Sardines: Tiny Fish with Big Health Benefits
A much overlooked superfood, sardines are “packed” with omega-3 fatty acids, are a sustainable catch and are also free from many of the contaminants (like mercury and dioxins) that plague the larger oily predatory fish (including tuna and salmon).
Enjoy sardines in the traditional Mediterranean way – as an antipasto with olives and roasted veggies or with some grain-free crostini.
Selecting and Storing Sardines
After opening, keep sardines refrigerated in an air-tight container for no more than 2 days.
