    I enjoyed this tin gently warmed and over plain leftover white rice. It was a delicious, quick lunch. The sauce was a simple sofrito style “sauce” and there were 5 nice sized sardines with some breading on them. They were firm, not mushy – they would have ate a little dry without the sauce so it was definitely needed. Would order again to have on hand for a simple meal.

    Enjoyable aroma of roasted fish with vegetables…4 fair sized fish (I wouldn’t call these small) covered in onion and pieces of tomato…
    The fish has a great flavor and is one of the best tasting sardines I have had to date…firm chew…delicately breaded, fried/baked, then tinned in this excellent oil/sauce, which makes for a rich sardine…flavors of sweet onions mainly, a little red bell pepper and tomato…Delicious!!!…it’s worth the splurge…
    As suggested by Dan I warmed this tin…then served it with pieces of Toasted Artisan Garlic Bread (SKH), which I used to soak up that incredible sauce, and Castelvetrano Olives (Italy)…the rich buttery olives and the sauce from this tin were a perfect marriage…
