    Can you PM member itsstillmatt with that info? He's mentioned before on here that he is clueless about fresh sardines. Thx.

    haha i'm likely equally as clueless, the only difference being i bought a few and, not knowing what else to do, threw them onto a hot grill in an act of desperation.

    These are the best canned sardines I have ever eaten (I am a sardine fan). These are wild, sustainably caught sardines from the California coast. Yum!

    Might I propose a couple lovely serving suggestions:

    1. Mash up sardines with cream cheese and spread on toasted bagels.
    2. Toast bread, drizzle with olive oil, spread with mashed (or sliced) fresh avocado and layer with sardine filets.
    3. The Swedes know fish: try Jansson's Frestelse . FYI, Swedish "anchovies" are really sprats or sardines.

    When did you buy them? I feel like all of these I see now are product of Vietnam. And seafood from Vietnam is super sketch

    I like my sardines with caramelized onions over grits.

    They are California sardines, but as you correctly pointed out, packed in Vietnam. Nothing sketchy about them.

    You don't find the fuel usage due to shipping fish from the US to Vietnam and back sketchy? You don't worry about the low pay in those factories? Those sardines should be called Sketchy Kill the Planet, not Wild Planet.

    You should see some of the seafood related factories in Vietnam, downright scary. I got those from Costco as well and thought they were good until I saw the box. The are pretty crafting hiding Vietnam

    Actually, I find the tax structure, anti-business government, and regulatory nightmare that is The People's Republic of California - where these are caught - sketchy; that's the reason work like this get's shipped to Vietnam (and elsewhere). Companies like these are just adapting to the conditions the libs set forth.

    I didn't want to engage, but I'm tired of seeing nonsense like that go unchallenged.

    Typical right wing bullshit. Unenlightened tripe from the kind of jerk who thinks women ought to be at home, barefoot and pregnant.

    Since my wife is an attorney with one of the top 5 law firms in the state of FL (I think #3 in their specialty?), she wears fantastic shoes, and we don't have children ourselves, it seems you don't have any idea what the fuck you're talking about.

    [additional non-sardine engagement self deleted...] OK, everyone's seen each side of the aside, let's get back to sardines.

    Just FWIW, I totally agree with you. I was having fun mocking the guy above whose posts often have the tone I took. The rest was too good to pass up. You sound lucky in your choice of wives.

    [Whoosh!] the sound of your sarcasm going right over my head! Sorry, your post was so straight forward I didn't spot the wink. :fistbump:

    ps - I am super lucky on the wife, but boy was law school tough on the two of us...

    Actually, Brunswick sardines in water freaking rock, because they look, taste, and smell natural.

    Sorry, but "Millionnaire" sardines are complete garbage, and a waste of money. Dry, salty as hell, and skinless. Wow, great value for the money.

    Now use your heads and get some real sardines, kids. Stop wasting your money. Next?
