Sardines are healthier and more sustainable fish. Sardines are rich in numerous nutrients. They are one of the most concentrated sources of the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA. Sardines are an excellent source of vitamin B12. Why don’t we eat them more? Tinned Sardines are easy to use. This is one of my favourite Sardine dishes.
