    Sardines are the hot new trend around here, fresh ones that is. I have found frozen sardines from Portugal being sold at a bulk grocery store. They were so cheap that I became suspicious.

    Since most fish is frozen on the boat and thawed in stores, I realize it's often best to just buy frozen fish. Is this case any different? Are there some preparations I should avoid when using frozen sardines?

    If you have experience with these, please share!

    Can you make sure that these were in fact only frozen once on the boat, and not thawed and refrozen later? I wouldn't even consider buying them if the latter were the case.

    Even if they were frozen only once, I would still use them just for recipes in which they were well-cooked (grilled, roasted, pan-fried). Definitely not anything uncooked/cured.

    Just my opinion, though; haven't actually had experience with the product.
