The name “sardines” is said to originate from Sardinia, a Mediterranean island known for sardine fishing. The canning of sardines started around the early 18th century in Europe. Through the centuries, the popularity of canned sardines spread around the world. In the Philippines alone, there are several brands of sardines to choose from.

Because of its affordability and accessibility, canned sardines are a staple at many households. If you’re tired of the regular preparation, here are some recipes that we found on YouTube to try to put a different spin on your sardine fix. Note: You may replace the brands used in the videos with your trusted brands.

The video is about five minutes long. You can make sardines fishball using the same ingredients; you just need to make the shape round instead of flat. You can also add other ingredients like carrots.

Sardine Chips

Neri’s Kitchen calls it Crispy Egg Sardines Chips, but it also looks like chicharon, so I guess we can call it chicharon sardines. Hehe. The ingredients, aside from the sardines, include eggs, salt, cornstarch, black pepper, and flour. The channel used vinegar dip, but you can also use other kinds of dip like tartar sauce or pour some ranch dressing or blue cheese dressing (susyal!).
