Hailing from large schools in the sea, fresh Sardines are quite popular with today's top chefs. The lack of ‘fishy’ taste and their firmer bodies makes them perfect for the grill. Named after the Mediterranean Island of Sardinia, this fish is rich in oil, small in size and silvery in colour. Being nutritional powerhouses, this coastal fish is packed with Omega-3 Fatty Acids, Proteins and is great for the bones. The best part is Sardines require minimal preparation. They are often pickled, grilled or smoked.
