View Full Version : Is Beach Cliff the only sardine with a traditional taste?

I have tried other brands and they taste like they were processed as Tuna. The old school taste comes from Beach Cliff which stands to reason since they have their roots in the now defunct Maine sardine industry.

Who the crap eats THAT?

Once you try them, you will be hooked. I have been eating sardines since I was a kid. Also, the "Stinson Seafood 2001" is a re-brand. The Sardineland fisherman has been around probably longer than you or I. If you study the history of sardines, you will discover they were once more sought after than lobster and were a luxury food item.

I have, and no. And definitely no in the preferred to lobster department. Steak and lobster with a baked potato is Heaven. Nice salad on the side and a glass of sweet tea tops it off.

Them greasy little fish soaked in mustard? Nah. Used to eat them when I was a kid because my Grandpa did. Tried them as an adult and it was wasted money.

Caviar is a luxury food item and you just wait to watch me stuff MY mouth with fish eggs. Don't hold hold your breath and get some good shoes because you're going to be standing around awhile.

Lobster is Heaven.

Not for me it ain't

Them ocean going cockroaches scoot along the bottom, scooping up whatever's dead and festering to stuff in their yip.

This is the kinda crap we used to buy and put in bags to trap them.

I don't think I do any protein that is in a can, except occasionally some tuna.

There is this:


Promote Heart HealthSardines are rich in numerous nutrients that have been found to support cardiovascular health. They are one of the most concentrated sources of the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, which have been found to lower triglycerides and cholesterol levels; one serving (3.25 ounce can) of sardines actually contains over 50% of the daily value for these important nutrients. Sardines are an excellent source of vitamin B12 (http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=nutrient&dbid=107), ranking as one of the World's Healthiest Food most concentrated in this nutrient. Vitamin B12 promotes cardiovascular well-being since it is intricately tied to keeping levels of homocysteine in balance; homocysteine can damage artery walls, with elevated levels being a risk factor for atherosclerosis.
Promote Bone HealthSardines are not only a rich source of bone-building vitamin D (http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=nutrient&dbid=110), a nutrient not so readily available in the diet and one that is most often associated with fortified dairy products. Vitamin D plays an essential role in bone health since it helps to increase the absorption of calcium. Sardines are also a very good source of phosphorus, a mineral that is important to strengthening the bone matrix. Additionally, as high levels of homocysteine are related to osteoporosis, sardines' vitamin B12 rounds out their repertoire of nutrients that support bone health.
Promote Optimal HealthFor many years, researchers have known that vitamin D, in the form of calcitriol, participates in the regulation of cell activity. Because cell cycles play such a key role in the development of cancer, optimal vitamin D intake may turn out to play an important role in the prevention of various types of cancer.
Packed with ProteinSardines are rich in protein, which provides us with amino acids. Our bodies use amino acids to create new proteins, which serve as the basis for most of the body's cells and structures. Proteins form the basis of muscles and connective tissues, antibodies that keep our immune system strong, and transport proteins that deliver oxygen and nutrients throughout our bodies.

That's true, but that's also how crab is lured to the pot in the ocean.

I'll take lobster & crab any day over fish of any kind. With butter. Obscene amounts of premium butter.

Damn, now I want a King Crab Omelette!

Halibut is amazing, as well, but they're also a bottom feeder like crabs & lobsters are.

I'm well aware of how to trap lobster. I can even tell you about "some person I know" that used to raid their traps in Biscayne Bay. I just don't like fish. When I would deep sea fish, I always went with someone that would take my catch. I wish I DID like it. It's less expensive and healthier than red meat.

But I'm sticking with my steak and lobster. :laugh:

I grew up in Maine, went fishing before I joined the Coast Guard.

Got so I hated those damn bugs.

But Cod, man oh man!

Please sir, may I have another!

We visit the land of my husband's ancestors (aka Maine) once or twice a year. I wish I had the time in Maine and money to get tired of fresh lobster!

I do love Cod in my homemade fish chowder, too.

And Dover Sole- yum!

Asians, for one example, eat sardines. A long-ago pal married to an Asian guy showed me how to make a sardines and green onions omelet. It was delightful.

Sardines are actually much better when served with home-made/fresh salsa. I mash them up, add eggs and green onions, make a small omelet with cheese inside and fresh salsa on top.

I'm aware of what Asians eat. Anything that doesn't move fast enough. :laugh:

I don't care what y'all eat. I just registered an opinion. I grew up on both coasts and can swim like a fish. I went from last class to Water Survival Qualified in one day. I just don't like fish if it tastes like fish. Used to like all that crap as a kid. As an adult, no.

It's not a judgment ... just a taste. Y'all can have all them sardines you want. If I don't eat any, more for you. Ain't going to hurt my feelings. Long as you're downwind. :laugh:

Lol! Well, if I'm ever starving in the Obamanation, and all I have remaining in my pantry is a tin of sardines, you won't see/hear me bitching about it. That's all. I'm into stocking all kinds of canned meats/fish like that. If not for myself, may need it for the felines.

Gotta get just the right kind, soaked in just water for me. Mild flavor. The you need to put a ton of Duke's mayo in there and squish it altogether. And it makes my wife want to vomit when she sees me make it! And yep, the stuff is great if you are watching your cholesterol.

I try not to criticize others' taste in food, but, oh lordy!
