Ingredients: Sardines (Sardina pilchardus) 65%, water, alcohol vinegar, sunflower oil, onions, tomato concentrate, spices and aromatic plants, salt, thickener: guar gum.
Sardines in Escabeche, which is sometimes translated as “pickle sauce” or “marinade”, both of which it is, but it is also much more. It’s oil, vinegar, herbs and spices, so it’s a vinaigrette. We often see mussels in escabeche, but only occasionally do we see vinegar sauces with sardines–that’s because they soften the flesh more than just oil. Some people love that, some people don’t. We do.
