Spanish style sardines are sardines in oil and it is spicy, it is very delicious thought it is hot and spicy. My husband loves it and always buy some from his officemate who comes from Cebu. I love it too, I remember when I was in college and my Ant who works in Butuan would always bring some bottles, I would take it in our dorm and it last for more than a month. When I have no money for food I will just buy rice and eat a piece of sardines, it is so tasty that I only need one. And my kids too, they love it also. [i][b]How about you guys? Do you also like Spanish style sardines? How do you find its taste?[/b][/i]

ROFL...the best part is that here in Spain those Sardines wouldn't even be considered "Spanish syle". But that aside...I learned to love them when being with my friends from the Philippines and as I love spicy food anyhow..go and figure :)

I have never tried sardines. I am not much of a fish eater anyway. I love Mexican food. I would like to try sardines sometime though just to see if I like it or not.

It is spicy, I think if you love Mexican foods, you will like it too.

Yep, I'm fond of eating Spanish sardines because it is appetizing. Even small amount is already enough viand for a plate of rice. But nowadays, I limit my intake of sardines because of its high purine content, which may increase the blood's uric acid. Anyways, I remember when I was in Zamboanga, Spanish sardines are very popular there. I think Montano Spanish sardines are made in Dipolog. Actually, I have a colleague who lives in Dipolog and who actually makes Spanish sardines as a home-based business. He often gives me a bottle of Spanish sardines when he comes for a visit.

My parents love this, and I used to, but I haven't really eaten some in a while. Actually, the last time I ate a piece, I decided to check the bottle for the calorie count. I don't know if it I misread it, but the calorie count for one piece of fish is pretty high. Nowadays, I rarely eat it.

My Pehpot, you've just made me so hungry now. I love Spanish Sardines. I miss them. I also like to eat them with warm plain rice. I like them hot and spicy. I think there are different kinds being sold in the grocery, but i like the spicy ones. One bottle is good for one meal for me and my husband. It tastes so good, and i so love the oil. It is also healthy because it is rich in Omega 3. My mouth is watering now. Hmmm...

Hi there pehpot! I do not like the taste of Spanish Style Sardines. I do not even want the smell of it. My dad knows how to prepare it. My paternal grandmother also knows how to prepare it. In fact, if they wanted to start a business on this, I am sure that they will be successful at it. I tasted Spanish Style Sardines -- commercialized and home-made. But I really do not like it even if it were prepared by my dad or by my grandmother...

The original Spanish Sardine is very tasty and I like it a lot. I buy it in many Convenience Stores. It is very spicy and oily, the oil in that is an olive I think?

I love Spanish style sardines especially from ZAmboanga or Dipolog city. There is also the canned version and cheaper but it's not that delicious as those in the jars. I think it's called Spanish style because it's much spicier and hotter( is that Mexican?) and it's in olive oil and I think (only a guess ) :)the people in ZAmboanga or the Chavacanos are the ones who started to make it.

One of my friends love Spanish sardines that every time she would shop her basket will never be without cans of Spanish sardines.Even her husband likes too. They would even suggest to us to buy this kin of sardines. One time we had a picnic at Picnic Grove. You know what she brought? Spanish sardines! In our home though, we seldom eat sardines because my husband does not enjoy eating them. He would rather eat tuyo than sardines!

I haven't tried any Spanish sardines yet. I'm not into eating sardines because of the taste that it's left that taste in my tongue. Although I do eat sardines, spicy sardines, but not often. But because of your description on that Spanish style sardines, I think I want to try some. Maybe later..
