What to do with tinned sardines?

I'll confess - I am not a fish lover. But I try to eat fish when I can stand to, though it's mostly mild whitefish or canned tuna (sorry!), just for the health benefits, especially now that my cholesterol is creeping up year on year. Someone suggested I buy tinned sardines, that they are versatile and the flavor enhances rather than dominates a lot of dishes. But I don't know what to do with them!

Firstly, what, literally, to do with the tiny fish. Do you eat every bit of it or are there parts you're supposed to chop off or cut out (guts, etc.)?

Second, what to do with it in terms of recipes/meals - recipes where the flavor would compliment whatever else I'm eating with it. I'm open to just about anything but generally keep a Mediterrean-stocked kitchen as opposed to, say, Asian or Southwestern or whatever, so any Med-region recipes or uses are apprecited.

How can I learn to love and eat these easily and regularly?
