What can I do with these sardines, I took them out of the freezer last night?

Any ideas welcome

I'd just grill 'em if I was you, maybe a bit of salt on the skin, get the skin nice n crispy and serve with a big salad. Yum!

Did you want something exciting though?

Any suggestion are welcome. Yours sounds nice. I was looking it being 9 month old baby friendly too, which your seems to be (minus the salt).

How did you get on? I love my fish and so keen to see if you enjoyed it!!

Incidentally our DD loves tinned sardines which are a doddle when you're out of ideas and packed full of lovely fish oils - and v good value to boot!! Just make sure you drain the oil off and put them on kitchen towel for a while to soak up - I always get sardines in olive oil - but still probably a bit oily for more than once a week! Yum though...

She got on fine.

I cooked myself two for lunch and left her one for tea. I had to pick out ALOT of bones, but she seemed to enjoy it.

I followed your recipe (minus the salt ).

I certainly enjoyed them, I don't think I will give them to her anytime soon as I didn't realise how many bones they contained.

At least I lknow now how to cook sardines wink

If bones are tiresome then things like lemon sole dover sole plaice etc i.e. the flatfish are delicious and boneless if you get fillets - they cost a bomb though! with them you flour on each side then fry in a bit of butter for a minute or two each side (until turn white) then serve with mash and spinach yum...

The tinned sardines are bone free if you get the fillets - not quite the same kettle of fish (ha!) but still yummy... maybe an acquired taste!

Am v pleased your DC enjoyed the sardine, our DD will eat pretty much anything, and I think it's simply because we give it to her! Try telling people your 9mo likes sardines - jaws will drop! Glad you enjoyed them too! x
