Sardines in Spicy Tomato Sauce from 'The Adobo Road Cookbook'

Kate Williams Post a comment

For Marvin Gapultos, canned sardines in tomato sauce were the ultimate bachelor comfort food. These days, however, he has ditched the can for a fresh version featured in his new cookbook, The Adobo Road. His sauce is a perfect example of the melting pot of culinary influences in the Philippines: tomatoes from the Americas, smoked paprika and white wine from Spain, and fish sauce and calamansi lime juice from Southeast Asia. Fresh sardines quickly broiled atop the fragrant sauce are a step above the canned variety and just as effortless to prepare. More

Sandwiched: Canned Sardine Banh Mi

Sandwiched Marvin Gapultos 2 comments

Sardine banh mis are usually made with canned sardines packed in a spicy tomato sauce. The rich, meaty flavor of sardines along with the spice and tang from the tomato sauce can lift a baguette in ways that other fillings can't. And since canned sardines are used, this particular type of Vietnamese sandwich is a cinch to make at home. More

When combined with the usual banh mi accoutrements of mayonnaise, pickled carrots and daikon, fresh cilantro, jalapenos, and a drizzle of Maggi seasoning, a simple tin of sardines transforms into a savory and satisfying sandwich. More

Bar Bites: Grilled Sardines with Lemon, Garlic, and Paprika

Marvin Gapultos 5 comments

Because of their small size, sardines make for a quick and easy to prepare finger food option, and when quickly crisped over an open flame, they are great when paired with a glass of Rioja or a cold beer. More

A Sandwich A Day: The Captain's Daughter at Saltie in Williamsburg

New York Christine Chung 1 comment

Saltie has created the ideal in-between sandwich, something that's not quite breakfast or brunch, nor dinner. It's exactly what I want to eat at 3 PM, when I'm determined to eat something a bit substantial that won't completely obliterate my appetite. Enter the cheekily named Captains Daughter ($8). More

The Nasty Bits: How to Make Sardine Lovers out of Sardine Skeptics

The Nasty Bits Chichi Wang 24 comments

I like sardines straight from the can, slapped on a piece of bread so all the fishy oils sink into the bread and the the flesh smears and flattens just so. I like that the bones on very small sardines are soft enough to be eaten along with the fish. A couple of fillets make for an instant meal. More

Marinated and Broiled Sardines

Serious Eats Chichi Wang 1 comment

Cooked properly so that the flesh has only begun to flake, the flesh is tender and not very fishy at all. If you can get sardines that are very fresh, the easiest thing to do is to grill or broil them so the skin chars a little. More

A Sandwich a Day: Cured Sardine Sandwich at Local Mission Eatery

A Sandwich a Day Carrie Vasios Mullins 4 comments

Local Mission Eatery is dedicated to living up to its name. Everything in the restaurant is made from locally sourced ingredients, even, it seems, the decor (a wall of lovingly used cookbooks). Yet a meal here is more than just a ho-hum pile of local roasted veggies. They serve more assertive dishes such as tongue with mushrooms and pears, or this Cured Sardine Sandwich ($9). More

Eat for Eight Bucks: Sardine Linguine with Sundried Tomatoes and Olives

Serious Eats Phoebe Lapine and Cara Eisenpress 5 comments

Sardines seem to be having a moment in the sun. They're not just an easy-to-prepare bachelor food, they're also apparently a health food—just see Alton Brown. But I'm in it for the flavor. Gather a mess of Mediterranean ingredients and go to town. Chop up some pitted black olives, sweet and tangy sundried tomatoes, and fennel to complement the pungent fish. More

Sardines for Breakfast Anyone?

Erin Zimmer 40 comments

If you are smitten with sardines but don't want to be that person stinking up the office with your little fishies for lunch, ever consider having them for breakfast? As the Internet Food Association points out, "they are ridiculously good for you (omega-threes!), cheap, and sustainable." Hello sardine omelets? Sardine-topped oatmeal? More
