Recommendations for cleaning the Sardines:
First, cut the head and tail off. Then open the sardine in half and with the help of a knife or scissors remove the entrails that are along the fish in the belly area.
Separate the two loins. Remove the central spine with a knife or your fingers. Pressing very carefully, separate the skin and the scales from the loins and remove any remaining fishbone. Finally, rinse the loins and they would be ready to eat or prepare in any recipe.
If you don’t want to have to clean your fish, the product you’re looking for is our sardine fillets, rather than whole sardines.
Salted sardines, in addition to their exquisite flavour, are full of health benefits. Their high concentration of calcium and phosphorus help strengthen our bones. They also contain vitamin B12 and D, which help protect our immune system.
