Wild fish caught in Atlantic, North-East
The SARDINE is a small, silvery fish with a protruding snout and large mouth. The sardine has dark, oily flesh which is popular among some consumers and loathed by others.
The fish is rich in omega-3 acids, and generally considered to be very healthy for those who favour the taste.
Because it is low in the food chain sardine is very low in contaminants.
Its salty flavour, oily texture and very distinctive smell make it an amazing dish once fried or simply grilled.
The season starts in the beginning of June.
Price indicated is for a box of 2 kilos.
French Name: Sardines (Sardina pilchardus)
