    A great can of sardines – they are packed beautifully, with great flavor and texture. I’ve had a couple cans of these now, and really enjoy them. I can eat them straight from the can or with some nice bread – they don’t really need anything else!

    An excellent medium pilchard. Pearlescent, clean fish with balanced salinity and a lovely, slightly flakey texture. Will definitely slot into the rotation.

    They’re plain but very good (even straight from the tin at room temp). Enough flavor and seasoning here that you don’t really need to add a thing although they’d support that too. These medium fillets hit a great medium texture and medium moisture – no dryness, no chewiness. They are not far behind Ferrigno Les Belles de Marseille Les Pitchounettes when it comes to small sardines … and that’s a compliment. I continue to be impressed by Don Gastronom and will be happy to occasionally order these again when I want a pure small sardine experience.

    This was a great tin of sardines – perhaps slightly bigger than what I expected (received 10 fish) but they were packed beautifully. Firm enough to come out of the can easily in one piece and the texture was just right, no dryness or mushiness. The oil appears to be of a high quality also – I drizzled some on some crusty sourdough toast (my go-to when trying a tin to review for the first time) and it really compliments the bread. The seasoning is spot on and these sardines are a perfect candidate to eat straight from the tin as-is.
    I have been really impressed with the Don Gastronom offerings thus far and I’ll most likely place this tin in a periodic rotation, especially at its price point.
