Matiz Gallego Sardines – Item of the Day — 14 Comments

  1. Can you tag this as a TSP Amazon Item of the day. It makes searching for birthday presents easy. Thanks.

  2. I tried these after hearing you recommend them on an earlier show and they’re great!
    I got the 5-pack and so far I tried them just plain out of the can to test them out and also substituted them for salmon in some salmon patties.
    It’s a great deal for a quick healthy snack

    • I don’t think we really have a fish that fits that, I guess may be creek chubs?

  3. These are on point as far as sardines go, Jack is not overselling. The best part for me is that I don’t get the typical office complaints when I eat them at lunch because the smell is subdued compared to the stuff off the grocery store shelf.

  4. The last good sardines I have eaten was the possum brand. I am ordering some of these. Can’t wait to try them.

  5. Same ‘item of the day’ as 8/10/16, but hey, if they’re that good, then why not give them another go around with the audience.

    Not sure if you care or not, Jack, but thought I’d mention it.

    • At this point 1-2 items a week sometimes three are encore items. You can always tell just by looking at the URL.

      Given I only recommend items I own, have purchased or at least personally used, there is a limit to how many items I can post.

      Quality and integrity over quantity.

  6. I’d like to also recommend the Season brand of sardines and mackerel which can be found out Costco and Wal-mart for less than $2/can depending on when you buy them. They are also packed in olive oil. Delicious and a little less costly. They go on sale at Costco for $7/6 pack a couple of times a year. I stock up for the year. Great recommendation.

  7. Does not appear that the 25 pack link works, it links to the 5 pack. Search of Amazon doesn’t find a 25 pack option.

    • I guess they discontinued the 25 count pack, I have modified the post, thanks.

  8. Sardine Pizzas
    This is a recipe that I grew up with and it comes from my mother who learned it from a lady in California many years ago. My mother also once served this to a lady that did not like sardines (not allergic, just did not like them). The lady thought that they were delicious.
    2 english muffins
    ~2 TBS ketchup
    1 can sardines (4 sardines / 3.75 oz can)
    4 slices cheddar cheese
    Take and split the english muffins and coat each half with a layer of ketchup. Take a sardine and split it (it will naturally spit down the back) and lay the two halves on the ketchup. Cover each with a slice of cheese and broil at 350 deg F until cheese is melted. Serves up to 4.
    Notes: The ketchup and cheese can be replaced with the sauce and cheese of your choice. Some cans of sardines have just two large sections that fill the can, you can just split each section as above.
    I have found that if you empty the sardines into a small bowl and mash them with the oil / juice from the can and then divide the mash into four parts, it is less messy as you do not have to handle the fish with your hands.
    Both myself and my brother have found relief from joint stiffness and pain from consuming the cold fish oils found in the sardines. My brother and I use the entire contents of the can, both fish and oil.
