Hey, thanks for this post, Bill! Your right that the smallest sardines are best. That's a good tip about checking the count. Another good tip, in the US at least, is to look for sardines labled "Brisling"--man, those are great! I wish they had sardinillas picantes here--that sounds really good.

I be curious to learn more about the roasted peppers you mentioned...


Thanks, Dave. I'll try the brislings. I'm pretty sure they're a different species than the Spanish sardines. I probably ate brislings when I was a kid. My Dad and I used to eat a lot of sardines. Time to try them again.

I did an early post on roasting peppers. Here it is, in case you didn't see it:

Good to hear from you!



I recently bought a jar of sardinas a la antigua by Ortiz and they were fabulous. Hand fried and packed and costs more than the others but worth it. I was sopping up every last bit with my bread.


Hi, Alice. Yes, Ortiz makes great products. I don't believe I've tried their sardinas a la antigua yet. Thanks for the tip--and thanks for reading! I'll be on the look out for them.
