We’ve been going a bit crazy for canned sardines lately. We’re in Lisbon, a city that has been called “city of sardines”, and there are tons of amazing sardines.

Our favorite is this brand called Pinhais – in fact you can see several cans of them on our table there!  They’re the most expensive sardines I’ve seen here (over $5 per can for their special limited edition one), but they are definitely worth it!  Their sardines are more tender than the others I’ve tried here (and I’ve tried quite a few already).  Unfortunately, it’s tough to get any of these brands in the US, so I guess it’s a good reason to visit Portugal. However, in the US, you can get quite a few good ones on Amazon – like this Wild Planet Wild Sardines in Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

If you’re interested in finding out more about the health benefits of sardines, then check out these 2 articles (here and here).

And if you’re worried about mercury levels in fish (then rest assured that sardines are low in mercury and high in omega-3s).
