Sardines seem like the perfect Paleo food, but I don't hear much about them. Do you eat sardine? What brands?
yup. I do Fisherman's Eggs regularly, makes for a great brunch. Trader Joes has some nice ones tinned in olive oil. watch out for the other varieties in soybean oil or canola. they're marked on the package.
i love the combo of fat and salt in sardines.. they are a nice slow-burning fatty fish, and the umami is out of this world
you can try this recipe for Fisherman's eggs. Easy and very tasty. Try them for breakfast, or pair with a leafy salad for a quick supper. Serves 4. Adapted from The Silver Spoon.
Heat the oven to 500°F and preheat an ovenproof serving dish for five minutes. Place a can of sardines, a small sliced shallot, a few sprigs of chopped parsley, and two cloves of finely chopped garlic in the warm dish. Add some black pepper and put the dish back in the oven for six minutes. Remove the dish from the oven, break four eggs into a bowl, and pour them gently on top of the sardine mixture. Season with salt and pepper and put the dish back in the oven for seven minutes, until the egg whites are cooked but still jiggly. Remove the dish and let it sit for five minutes (the eggs keep on cooking even out of the oven). Serve with hot sauce.
these complete my Sunday mornings :)
Grilled until the skin is crispy and then drizzled with high-quality olive oil mixed with fresh garlic and chopped parsley.
True Mediterranean delight.
Eat them whole. Heads, guts, spines and all.
Thank me later.
I like sardines, but when I started following this lifestyle I accidentally grabbed anchovies at the store. I didn't notice when I got home and didn't even notice until I put a big bite in my mouth. SALT ATTACK
I eat a can of sardines every other day. love them! Just eat them straight out of the can with a carrot at the side. Since I don`t drink milk their a good source of calcium. The brand I go for is King Oscar, a norwegian brand. Sardines in extra virgin olive oil. Expensive, but totally worth it.
I once had some sardines from the lunch-buffet at my work. My co-workers gave my plate a really strange look and asked if I had found a dead snake or something and put it on my plate.. lol..I wonder what they would have said if they knew I ate offals on a regulary basis as well... :P
How do you get your co-workers to stay away from your office and leave you alone?
Eat sardines out of the can. They hate the smell and I love the solitude!!!
It's become a joke but it's still effective for getting my work done.
I eat a few cans of Brunswick sardines in olive oil per week. They make for a convenient snack.
I can get stuff from the salad bar in the cafeteria at work and put my sardines over it, then use the olive oil from the can for the dressing which avoids the canola/soybean oil in all the dressings they have there - win/win.
by far the best brand I have found is Matiz sardines - large fleshy sardines not mush in a can. MMM, sardines, I think I will go have some right now. I also love to buy fresh sardines when available and grill them whole on my charcoal grill with salt and lemon. Delightful!
