Buying Tips

As with other fish, look for fresh sardines with clear, bright eyes and firm flesh.


More than 20 varied species of small fish are sold as sardines worldwide. They are typically available in small, ready-to-use tins, but are also sold fresh. Canned sardines are sold in soy, olive, or other oil, fried or smoked, packed in mustard sauce, tomato sauce, or even salsa, and may be skinned and boned and sold as fillets, too.
