Buying & cleaning sardines (moved from Boston board)

galleygirl | Jun 28, 2006 07:24 PM

Let's discuss "cleaning" sardines...I've bought them at Whole Foods, and their cleaning seems to entail removing so much of the inside that they feel hollow. When I've gotten them in restaurants, they seem to leave quite a few organs in there, and they taste just fine (Had some last week at Akroplis in Peabody...mmmmmm)...What does one ask for, or do real fish markets know what to leave, unlike Whole Foods?
