Here they are, the delicious sardines!
June would not be a month without them. Saint Peter, Saint John, and Saint Anthony would not know what to do without the “beautiful sardine” on a slice of bread, full of Omega 3, served with roasted pepper salad and baked potatoes. On the grill, in a stew, fried with tomato rice or marinated, the sardine is one of the “girlfriends of Portugal”, as far as popularity is concerned. Originally from Sardinia, in the Mediterranean, these little fishes swam thousands of kilometres and spread worldwide. But no one takes the Portuguese’s title of Europe’s biggest sardine consumers.
