Sandwich Sunday: Sardine and Dill Special
Not gonna lie – aside from cheap fast food chicken sandwiches, kettle chips, and sugary kids cereals, I hold a soft spot in my heart for anything involving the words “can” and “seafood.” Anchovies, tuna, and salmon are all fair game, but my favorite canned seafood item of choice are sardines.
Rich, buttery, and meaty, the taste of canned sardines from Crown Prince is exceptional. I know quite a few people who “think” they don’t like sardines, but combined with the light and cool taste of fresh dill and cucumber they help create a classic combination of flavor. Any kind of fatty fish pairs wonderfully with cream cheese, and the dense, chewy multigrain bagel adds a nutty dimension to the sandwich.
I personally like sardines in tomato sauce with the skin on, but this sandwich would also be good with smoked Kipper snacks like the ones I reviewed a few years ago. Any other sardine fans out there? What’s your favorite way to enjoy canned seafood?
