Serving Suggestions

With little to no fishy odor, these sardines are easy to eat anywhere and at any time of the day, from brunch to dinner, and as a ready (and portable) snack, straight out of the tin. We enjoyed them:

For Breakfast

  • With scrambled eggs
  • On a smoked fish platter

For Lunch

  • On a bed of lettuce, spinach or mixed greens
  • In a salade Niçoise, substituting the sardines for tuna
  • On a crusty roll or baguette, with lettuce, tomato and aïoli dressing

For A First Course, Hors D’Oeuvre Or Snack

  • On toast points, with a dab of Lemonaise (lemon mayonnaise), crème fraîche or sour cream with chives
  • On an antipasto platter

For Dinner

  • Tossed with pasta and pesto
  • Added to a stir-fry
  • Flaked into fried rice
  • On pizza
Let guests assemble their own. Provide a condiment such as lemon mayonnaise, crème fraîche or sour cream with chives. Photo by M Studio | IST.

You’ll have fun with BELA-Olhão—and may never think of a sardine the same way again.
