My husband who isn't Filipino is in love with Montano brand "Spanish-style" sardines packed in glass jars of olive oil, with some chili pepper, cucumber, carrot, peppercorns also in there. I suspect this Filipino product is not sold in the U.S. But am hoping that they do exist somewhere... Anyone have any ideas.
(For anyone trying to find me a substitute, I've read that these sardines are made from a Filipino herring. They're headless, but skin and bones are intact. Their length makes them a perfect fit for sliced bread. They taste like what I imagine an anchovy would be like if it wasn't so salty. )
