Lucky me. I just returned from a wonderful trip to Portugal. The food was spectacular and one item that was on just about every menu, and one that we consumed on many occasions, was fresh, grilled sardines.
One of the world’s healthiest foods, sardines are rich in omega-3 fatty acids and are known to promote cardiovascular health. And, unlike many other forms of seafood, they are extremely low in mercury.
Although best enjoyed fresh off the grill with a cold beer (preferably on a beach in Portugal), you can also enjoy this healthy treat in your own backyard.
