Really liked it, but I like sardines plain in all the sauces they come in. Used raw onion, half of one, and some celery for crunch. Pinot Griggio, and, white pepper, along with some fish sauce and for crackers, cracked pepper water crackers. Zesty and lively. Very nice.

I just made this (after saving it in a cookbook when it was first posted) I'm in love-this takes the very humble sardine and turns it into a delicacy. Husband Russ is out fishing and I'm sorely tempted to eat it before he gets back and never tell him. Thanks for posting

Delicious with crusty rye bread! A friend and I took your advice and enjoyed it with a bottle of wine. My fiance and I, both poor graduate students, will have this often once we are married, I'm sure. The wine made all the difference, letting us sit, enjoy, and talk in a more relaxed way than we would have with just some water. Great recipe! Thank you.
