What to eat with four year old sardines?

rworange | Mar 18, 2010 11:38 AM

I've been aging two cans of Connetable sardines for about four years
- Filets de Sardines Bretonnes in extra virgin olive oil
- A red can that just says "sardines" also in evoo

Here's links to more info about aged sardines. One of the links says "Once they age, the flavors meld and become more complex, almost a non-fish thing, very nutty, deep, and enthralling"

I'm planning to pick up a can of non-aged sardines to compare. Since there are no Connetable sardines locally, I'm going with my favorite sardine as the can to compare ... Angelo Parodi. I want to see how the best for my tastes holds up to the aged version.

Anyway, right now i'm thinking sardines on lettuce with tomatoes and either a side of good dark bread or saltines. Any other suggestions?

I'm moving and my stuff is going in storage for a couple of months. I figure in a storage space that isn't temperature controlled, the sardines may suffer. So I'm breaking into the cans soon.

Anyone with alcoholic drink suggestions post here
