Use good imported sardines packed in olive oil. The best are imported from Spain and Portugal. Smoked sardines don't match well with fennel. If you can find fresh, better still.

I love pasta con sarde, and order it whenever I have the opportunity. The first time I ate it, though, was on Christmas Eve in landlocked Bavaria, where fresh sardines are only a faint memory from southern shores. A friend from Sicily cooked it for us, and I am quite certain she used sardines packed in salt--they came in a large can. I have seen them in Italian delis here.
