Sardine Filets in Extra Virgin Olive Oil (Filets de Sardines à l’Huile d’Olive Extra Vierge) - 3.53 oz (100 g), by Berthe, from Portugal.

Sardine filets preserved in extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) offer a distinctive taste experience. The sardines contribute a rich, savory flavor with hints of brininess, while the EVOO adds a smooth, fruity undertone that complements the fish. Together, they create a well-balanced flavor profile, with the oil helping to temper any overpowering fishiness. The high-quality olive oil ensures a tender texture, making these sardines a delicious option for seafood enthusiasts.

Sardina pilchardus, or the "European pilchard," is a small, oily fish that thrives in the northeastern Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. Growing up to 15 - 20 centimeters, it forms large schools near the surface and feeds on plankton and small crustaceans. Highly valued in Portugal, Spain, and France, the fish are sustainably caught using purse seine nets, preserving the seabed and allowing smaller fish to replenish stocks. They are then commonly preserved through canning or smoking.

Berthe, an esteemed canned fish producer, originated in Portugal in 1853. They select the best fish from the Matosinhos fish market, thoroughly process them, and promptly can them through Ramirez & Ca. (Filhos) SA, one of the world's oldest canneries dating back to 1906. Tailored for the French market, Berthe's tins feature French labeling with an iconic girl on the front, symbolizing Lyonnaise literature. Today, Berthe is part of the Ramirez portfolio.

Sardine aficionados are well acquainted with these renowned Berthe sardines, cherished for their plumpness and lusciousness in every tin. Their firm texture and abundant infusion of premium olive oil ensure a consistently delightful flavor journey. Here are a few ways to eat to enjoy this popular Mediterranean delicacy:

  • Straight from the tin: Enjoy the sardines directly from the can as a quick and convenient snack. They can be eaten on their own or with a squeeze of lemon juice for added flavor.
  • On toast: Spread the sardines over toasted bread slices for a delicious and satisfying snack or light meal. To enhance the flavor, add toppings such as sliced tomatoes, avocado, or a sprinkle of herbs.
  • In salads: Add canned Berthe sardines to salads for a protein boost and a burst of flavor. They pair well with fresh greens, cherry tomatoes, olives, and a drizzle of balsamic vinaigrette.
  • In pasta: For a hearty and nutritious meal, incorporate canned sardines into pasta dishes. Simply toss them with cooked pasta, olive oil, garlic, chili flakes, and a squeeze of lemon juice for a quick and flavorful dish.
  • In sandwiches or wraps: Canned sardines can be used as a filling for sandwiches or wraps. Pair them with your favorite vegetables and condiments for a tasty, portable meal.
  • As a topping: Canned sardines are great for pizzas or bruschetta. Simply add them to your favorite pizza or bruschetta recipe before baking or grilling for an extra burst of flavor.
