    Three large firm meaty pilchards in a mild tomato sauce.

    The sauce has a slight essence of ocean, which is pleasant in that it brings back days spent fishing on Cape Cod in my youth, but it’s fairly nondescript overall. I doctored it up with some homemade Puttanesca sauce to give it more zing, and served it and the fish diced in chunks over a bed of turmeric couscous. The fish have a nice chew. They would hold up well (not fall apart) tossed in a pasta sauce. They’re not fishy or scaly. They’re good, typical Portuguese sardines, but honestly this product is probably not something I’d readily seek out again. There’s no wow factor.
