I just discovered I like canned Sardines! There anyway to eat them other than out of the can?

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Drain, mash them in the can, vinegar and black pepper, turf them out onto a piece of toast, and shove them under the grill for a bit. Delicious!

I will apologize in advance for sending you to my blog for this sardine dip but I could not find the original recipe from Bon Appetit on bonappetit.com epicurious. I believe it is from Nepenthe in Big Sur. http://www.summerofeggplant...

Sardines are great for omegas. Google any Norwegian, Danish, or Swedish site for great small smorgasbord items.

I like to toast slices of baguette that I've brushed with olive oil. I rub the toasted slices with garlic and then top them with sardines that I've marinated in a lemon-thyme vinaigrette.

I also love this recipe of Dorie Greenspan's:

Lemony Sardine Spread

Two 3 3/4-oz. cans sardines, boned and drained
2 1/2 oz. low-fat cream cheese
1 small onion, chopped
Juice of 1 lemon
2 Tbsp chopped parsley
Salt and pepper, to taste

Put all the ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth. Season with salt and pepper and add a bit more lemon juice if you’d like. If you have time, chill the spread for a few hours (or even overnight). Serve on crackers, toast, or slices of cucumber and radish.
