    DISCOVER AN AUTHENTIC TASTE OF PORTUGAL

    Our Portuguese sardines are fresh caught in the Atlantic Ocean off the west coast of Portugal and Morocco, and immediately frozen to preserve their distinctive, salty flavour. Sardines have long been a staple for the people of Portugal whose history is tied to the cold Atlantic Ocean where these fish flourish. The Portuguese prefer to enjoy their Sardines whole, grilled over hot coals.

  • Fishwife Recipes

    Traditional Grilled Sardines

    Grilled sardines are quick and easy to make, and generally how they are eaten in Portugal. See how in this recipe from The Fishwife. You will need:

    • 24 fresh caught Portuguese sardines
    • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
    • Salt
    • Freshly ground pepper
    • A handful of fresh rosemary sprigs
    • Lemon wedges

    Preparation:

    1. Prepare a hot grill, making sure the grill is oiled. Rinse the sardines, and dry with paper towels. Toss with the olive oil, and season with salt and pepper.
    2. When the grill is ready, toss the rosemary sprigs directly on the fire. Wait for the flames to die down, then place the sardines directly over the heat, in batches if necessary. Grill for a minute or two on each side, depending on the size. Transfer from the grill to a platter using tongs or a wide metal spatula and serve with lemon wedges.

          Finger looking good

          The sardines were great and much better than previous orders (some time ago) that were much bigger sardines. These were the real deal as good as eating out at “Rei Das Sardinhas” in Matosinhos, Porto!! Loved them and will definitely order again, just hope we get this quality again next time we order (:

          Easy ordering process. Fresh and tasty fish.

          Read about the health benefits of sardines. Woke up early next morning and ordered some while half asleep. Fish arrived by lunchtime the same day. The sardines were a nice size, fresh (no strong fishiness after thawing), easy to clean and tasted delicious. Couldn't ask for anything more really.

          For Man and Beast

          I first had real sardines in Algeciras, Spain in 1982 until that time being from USA I thought sardines only came in a tin! Every time I have Greenfish Sardines I think about my trips to Spain as a young Merchant Navy Engineer. They are delicious but the best part is sharing them with my dogs who gulp them down raw barely defrosted for a huge protein boost. Great as a starter to any Piri Piri style braai!
