Smaller than other sardines, brislings are mild flavoured with a delightful flakey yet firm texture. They’re a great pantry staple that makes a perfect ingredient for snacks, appetizers, and even main dishes. Brislings are a great source of protein, omega-3s and a host of vitamins like B12, D, calcium, selenium, and niacin. With everything they have going for them, you’ll be happy to know that sardines are quite versatile and that there is a sardine recipe for any occasion!

While you can use brislings in any flavour, we’re quite fond of the classic brislings in olive oil. Their mild smoky flavour is perfectly balanced in this recipe with the freshness of mint, basil and Fresno chillies. Serve them at your next cocktail or dinner party for a protein-rich crowd pleaser.
