Nuri Spiced Sardines in Tomato Sauce 3/5

(1 customer review)


While a lot of sardines in tomato sauce are using basic tomato puree to mask an inferior product, Nuri takes a different approach. They take the sauce seriously, and have developed a family recipe that is downright delicious. They put so much effort into their sardines, it would be foolish not to care as much about the sauce. The “spiced” in this version is Piri-piri pepper. If you want it tasty but not zesty, try the Nuri Sardines in Tomato Sauce.

    I have to admit that prior to trying a tin of these I thought that the idea of sardines in tomato sauce seemed a bit wrong.

    I bought a few tins of these because I absolutely love Nuri spiced sardines (and you probably do too, else you haven’t tried them yet) so I felt a duty to try them.

    I heard these benefit from being heated up a bit so I warmed the tin up in a bit of water before cracking them open while getting a slice of sourdough bread toasted. The spiced tomato sauce that these are in is fairly thin – for some reason I thought it would be thicker and with more texture – not that thin is wrong. I plucked out a sardine and dropped it onto a piece of toast and found my way to my first blissful bite.

    These have a flavor that I wouldn’t have conceived of, and even if I had, I’m not sure I would have understood it to be the right combination of flavors, but… tomato, spice, sardines…. it’s perfect. Nuri spiced sardines are the spiced sardines by which all others are judged for me. The same is now true for spiced sardines in tomato sauce.

    I eat sardines and other tinned fish on a fairly regular basis. I don’t always want a tomato-based tinned fish meal, but when I do, these hit the mark every time, perfectly.
