Ramón Peña Sardines in Sauce (Sardinas Guisadas) “Xoubas”, Silver Line


Sardines in Galicia are known as “sardinas”, “parrochas”, and “xoubas”, depending on the size. Xoubas, or xoubiñas are the smallest ones.

“Guisadas” means cooked, and implies cooked with a blend of homemade tomato sauce, green or red peppers, and onion.

Sardines stewed in tomato sauce. We love all of those words. Great straight from the tin, but also a great way to turn leftover rice or pasta into something fabulous. Also pretty incredible on toasted slices of a rustic bread.

    These were really great. I’m a fan of the traditional sardines in olive oil, and was curious how these sardines “stewed in tomato sauce,” would be. I should of known that of course they would be delicious since it was Ramon Peña. The sauce was really good, and it was almost a small meal in a can (not regarding the quantity, but the abundance of flavor). I agree that serving this with angel hair pasta is probably all you need. If you’ve ever dared try one of those “Freshe,” tins from the store – this is the ultimate criterion collection edition of what they’re trying to do there. Really good no matter how you serve it if you like tomato sauces with your tins – recommend some crusty bread or over pasta for sure!
