Sardines are our seafood of the month! Such an easy fish to cook, bake, deep fry, grill, microwave, poach, shallow fry, steam or stir fry or you could even just take them straight out of the tin and have them on toast or crackers!

Sardines have:

  • Protein which is good for which supports muscle mass
  • Vitamin D  that contributes to the maintenance of normal bones and teeth
  • Vitamin B12 which can reduce tiredness and fatigue
  • Niacin which contributes to maintenance of normal skin
  • Selenium which is great for your immune system
  • Phosphorus helps to form strong bones and teeth

That’s only a few of the vitamins and minerals that this small fish has! It should definitely be included as part of your two a week. If you’re finding it difficult to fit two portions of seafood into your weekly meal plan, then let us help with the below recipes.
