Picked up some smoked Riga Sprats at the Russian grocery. They were quite cheap and excellent on rye. Thanks for the recommendation.

How much were they? I've seen them for as little as $0.88/6oz. tin at a local discounter.

Ah, not that cheap, unfortunately. They were $1.29 apiece. Still, I was happy that they were half as much as the King Oscar brislings I was buying.

I had the Trader Joes oil packed one today and I bought a couple of cans from a European supermarket.

It got kind of boring after a while so I mixed in some whole grain mustard and mashed it then spread it on crackers and it taste pretty good.

Every now and then when my mom was gone somewhere my dad would make what he considered a sardine sandwich. Minced onion, miracle whip, minced pickle, sardines, and tobasco. Fork all that together until mixed and then spread it on toasted (rye) with lettuce. It's quite good but not for the delicate palet.

In Spain I had lovely fresh sardines as tapas and those are quite good but a completely different animal from the salty canned american type.

Nope, I've only had Latvian sprats from American distributors. Those are the second-most popular brand in Latvia, I think (Gamma Co. being the most popular).

Edit: Just looked at the website and realized I've had the sprats pate. Have 5 cans in the pantry right now.

I couldn't find the ones you posted in SF, but there were tons of these. Hopefully they are good.

Is it bad to consume too much of the oil that comes packed with Sardines? I mean there has to be some sort of preservative in them right?

No. They are canned.

How did you like these? I was inspired by this thread to try sardines for the first time, and ended up with a can of the above. The sardines seemed to be really overpowered by the mustard, but maybe I just got a bad can. edit - I'm a dumbass; you answered this in your next post. I'll have to try them again.

I like the taste of the king oscar two layer brislings, but I'm having trouble finding the riga sprats are there any great deals on them to be found online?
