    This is a beautiful, delicious tin of fish. Cracking this tin open I found three large, shiny silver-skinned sardines – about as large as I’ve seen in a tin. If it’s alright to call a tinned sardine beautiful, these definitely look the part to me.

    Plucking these out of the tin shows that they might be a bit on the soft side – not that they feel like they’d fall apart, but that the flesh yields a bit to pressure. Taking a bite proves that they are on the soft/medium-soft side, but given their large size, they still give your teeth some work to do.

    On the palate, despite their potentially intimidating size, they’re nice, mild, mellow fishy. Though it’s a mellow flavor, fish is what you get – the ingredients are sardines, oil, and salt, and the salt is fairly minimal, not contributing much to the flavor profile. I ate these pretty much straight out of the tin, and I loved them. Given their pure approach to the flavor profile, I think these would work well with just about any prep and ingredients. For this price, If you like ‘dines, I think these are just about as good as you can get.
