Ati Manel Sardines in Tomato Sauce


Big Portuguese pilchards. Tomato. Just add bread. Shhh, don’t tell anyone, we once made a grilled cheese stuffed with tomato sardines and dipped it between bites into the sauce in the tin. We might have drooled.

    Quite, quite good. Had 5 large-sized sardines in the tin with just a little bit of tomato sauce filling in the gaps. Ordinarily I might wish for more sauce but somehow it really worked in this one … the sauce was light, mild, and very good. It’s not a typical tomato paste sort of sauce – instead it felt like they really tried to make it worthwhile and compliment the fish. They succeeded. The simplicity of this tin really worked and I liked it just as much as the regular Nuri tomato tin (but not as much as the spiced Nuri tomato). The sardine quality is excellent with Ati Manel, they’re beautiful and not a scale to be found. Texturally, a pleasant medium firmness with above average moisture. I ate them directly from the tin and while I might have wanted just a *tiny* bit more salt, it was pretty nicely seasoned.

    Ati Manel sardines are super legit and this is no different. This is one of my favorite unspiced tomato tins, short of maybe only Latvian sprats in tomato. If you are looking for just a little bit of mild-but-great tomato sauce to complement your sardines, then look no further. Recommended!
