Sardines might not be the most appealing seafood of your choice but adding olives and capers you might have a totally different outlook. Sardines are not only easy to prepare but loaded with Omega 3 Fatty Acids, B 12, Vitamin D, and selenium. The nutrients in sardines are linked with lowering inflammation and decreasing Breast Cancer risk. I did a bit of research and discovered that canned sardines packed in Olive Oil are the best to purchase. Because sardines are at the beginning of the food chain and feed mostly on plankton, they are quite clean. However, make sure that you purchase wild-caught pacific only, according to Seafoodwatch.org. I order my sardines from Safe Catch and if you use the code DRV at checkout you will receive 20% off your first order. Bon Appétit!
1 Can Safe Catch sardines in olive oil

2 tbsp parsley
Pinch of red pepper flakes, optional
Himalayan Sea Salt
Place all the ingredients in a small food processor and pulse until well combined and ‘chopped’. Alternatively, you can also chop all the ingredients and place in a large bowl to combine.

I only purchase the sardines from Norway. I have heard that the Pacific ones may be contaminated with radiation from Japan.
I agree, I only eat fish from the cold North Atlantic.
