    This was my first can of the King Oscar Royal Selections. Peeled off the lid to no smell of smoke, just a slightly fishy smell. The can was liberally covered with the herbs (basil, oregano, & garlic) and there were 17 very delicate sprats in the tin, each 2 to 3 inches long. They tasted delicious, a bit fishy but the basil & oregano absolutely came through. I added just a dash of sea salt to round it out. With the herbs, the oil is very flavorful, and I recommend that you save it to use for a vinaigrette or just to sauté some veggies for another dish. This would also make a quick and easy pâté.

    Super tasty! I’m a big fan of pesto, so taking some key components of pesto and throwing it on some King Oscar sardines is a no brainer. These are perfect for someone who is averse to fishy flavors or squeamish about whole fish. The fish themselves are plump and silvery and are topped generously with the herb/seasoning mixture. LOTS of garlic coming through. Its nice to see that they aren’t afraid to have bold flavors where others might put a single lemon slice or tiny pepper in their tin. Not that there is anything wrong with that, this is just a nice change of pace. These would be perfect to incorporate into a recipe or slap on top of bread instead of eating them straight from the tin like I am.
