Sardinha Lightly Smoked Sardines in Olive Oil


Anytime there’s a little bit of smoke flavor, we gravitate immediately to softened cream cheese spread on a cracker. Or really go fancy with some Boursin.

    Some beautiful honkers here. Three beefy boys with beautifully silvery skin. They can be plucked from the can with chopsticks, but are still very moist. Everything about these is light. The smoke level is light, the salt level is light, the oil is on the lighter side. Even the wrapper is light blue! Someone needs to free him from that chimney. Next time these are definitely going on some crackers with cheese, but they were great straight from the tin.

    Enjoyed these on some crackers and am happy to report that the smoke is not at all overpowering (too much smoke is a no-go for me) and that the ‘deens themselves were big and delicious. Definitely recommend these if you’re looking for a quality smoked sardine that won’t break the bank.

    Beautiful, GIGANTIC, meaty. These are comparative in size to Matiz but a nice level up in flavor, texture. When I’m eating a massive sardine without any additional flavors mixed into the tin, this Sardinha tin is very much what I want – moist and flaky, mild but still noticeable flavor, medium chew with slightly softer outside surface. I didn’t necessarily notice a ton of smoke but there was a delightful underlying complexity in each bite that I might attribute to it.

    Similar in quality, flavor, and overall enjoyment to the Ferrigno La Bonne Mer Sardines in Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Fleur de Sel. For my personal tastes, you can’t go wrong with either this/Ferrigno and I haven’t found any better (yet?) at this price point for large sardines. Recommend!

    Solid tin, good QPR. My can had four beautiful sardines swimming in mild olive oil. They were moist, flavorful, and lightly smokey. If you like the “crunch” of spines, these are for you. The skins were a little roughed up in spots, no scales. This is a good one to have on hand as a versatile sardine to eat straight, or dress up in a dish.
