I bought a can several months ago and only opened it last night. The Great Freeze was upon us here in Houston - low water pressure, long power blackouts, icy roads, etc. - and, in searching my pantry at dinner time, these sardines caught my eye.
I opened the can and was pleasantly surprised by the ample size of the fish. I served them atop toasted bread and soft goat cheese, garnished with some fresh chopped herbs from my Aerogarden and a generous spritz of lemon juice. A Spanish Albarino went exceptionally well with the meal.
The fish were nice and firm, and the chiles they were canned with provided a very pleasant mild heat. I will be ordering some more.
