Ferrigno La Bonne Mer Sardines in Butter with Fleur de Sel from Camargue


These are intended to be lightly fried in the butter they’re packed in and then served atop steamed potatoes and/or vegetables.

Butter is a solid at room temperature, and the easiest way to make the butter liquid enough to remove the contents of the tin is to drop them into a pan of simmering water as you remove the pan from the heat. Let sit until just cool enough to handle easily.  Some people remove with tongs then run the tin under cool water so that it can be handled sooner. Be careful when breaking the seal as the contents are now under some slight pressure. We place our tins on a folded up paper towel for traction and to deal with any splurt. Pour contents into a saute pan and fry on medium heat until the edges just begin to get golden.

    I am very torn on this tin. The butter imparts a great flavor to the fish. They are also beautiful looking sardines, but the texture is where my opinion changes. The fish are very dry which was surprising. Overall it is still pleasurable as there is plenty of butter to sop up. Very interesting tin to try.
