Boneless & Skinless Sardines in Water

January 02, 2017 in Category: What's New

The saying “packed in like sardines” often has the negative connotation of describing a crowded place. Whether a subway train, concert or grocery store, the idea of being “packed” is not always appealing. However, there is one instance where “packed in like sardines” is not only true, but also welcome: when talking about Trader Joe’s Boneless Skinless Sardines.

Wild caught off the coast of Tunisia and processed nearby, these Sardines are skinned and deboned by hand before being packed in water to preserve natural flavor—without the added calories from olive oil.

While some cans of sardines include the bones, this variety is both boneless and skinless, leaving just the salty, delicate meat for you to enjoy. Boneless, skinless, and packed in water is a hard combination to find. We’ve got you covered.

Sardines, in general, provoke a common question: “How do I eat them?” For starters, you eat them whole. Add them to pizzas, salads, or eat them right out of the tin. Put a twist on the popular avocado toast with Sardine pieces and a dash of cayenne pepper. These Sardines have a mild taste that pairs well with flavorful matches like feta cheese, onions, cream cheese, mustard or capers.

For only $1.99 per 3.5 ounce tin, pack your pantry with Trader Joe’s Boneless Skinless Sardines in Water. Protein, tastiness, and value, all hand-packed into one small tin.
