Portuguese Sardines | Frozen Box | Wild caught | x24
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.

Your Portuguese sardines will arrive frozen, simply store in your freezer (up to 3 months) and use at your leisure. It is best to remove product from packaging to defrost, simply place on a tray in your fridge and allow to thaw slowly.
Any special requests or instructions can be left in the NOTES section at the Checkout. Eg: Your doorbell does not work, you require a phone call before the order arrives, you would like the fillets / steaks vacuum packed seperately or cut into smaller portions etc.
European Sardine are caught by purse seine nets which are set around a school of fish in the surface to mid-water. Discard rates in this type of fishing is low and an impact on endangered, threatened or protected species is unlikely. Bycatch of non-target species is also considered to be low.

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
- Freshly ground pepper
- A handful of fresh rosemary sprigs
- Lemon wedges
- 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.
- 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.

Received on timely manner but wasnt too fresh
Was not too fresh for my batch i received. As i was cleaning them, bits and pieces came off. Other fish products were great but not my sardines.
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.
Great Service and Great Quality ***** Highly Recommended!
First time and really impressed. Quick delivery, great packaging and quality. Will definitely purchase from this company again.
Excellent professional service
Fresh and tasty, well packaged! What a great experience from placing the order up until delivery to my front door.
You guys are amazing. I will never buy fish any other way. Really very impressed. Profesional, amazing quality and packaging. Prompt delivery.
I ordered in the morning and a few hours later it was delivered. Sealed in a styrofoam box. Product was as expected. Price was better than at the local market. First time ordering and very impressed.
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!

We have been looking for a responsible and ethical way to source our fish and are committed to supporting your work moving forward. Between the ease of ordering, the swiftness of delivery, and the quality of the product, we could not be happier. Thank you and we look forward to being a consistent customer.

We had the sardines grilled with just salt and olive oil. The sardines were very tasty I would recommend them to anyone that enjoys sardines

Dear Greenfish Staff, I recently received delivery in Stellenbosch on my first order placed this morning with Greenfish. Outstanding service. Excellent packaging. Very courteous driver. Super excellent product - Salmon and Sardines. If this is your standard, you can be assured of a life-long customer and promoter of Greefish as an exemplary/preferred supplier. Well done. Very impressive. Thank you. Ian Dean
