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.

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.

My order was well packed and the sardines were very tasty.
I was beyond impressed with Greenfish’s excellent products and service. I ordered the Portuguese Sardines and Yellowfish box and was delighted with both the contents of my order, as well as the quick turn-around-time. Thanks Greenfish team!
The bar is set, so long as you don't mind the de-scaling and gutting.
Was really surprised that these sardines were so lovely and fresh, even though they were frozen - good size too. Will definitely order them again Very happy!
The sardines themselves were great, and I know the products does say it comes whole. I think it would be a good idea to let people know that "whole" means that when you receive them, the customer must still scale and gutt them
