I like both, but anchovies are sooo yummy in tapas... I had the best anchovy tapas ever in Spain:-)

I like sardines out of the can, never had them fresh and the only way I can eat anchovies is in a Cesar salad.

For me these are two completely different things. Preserved anchovies I've always loved, and find them the ultimate addition to any pizza. Sardines, on the other hand, I've usually only had fresh. They're amazing when filleted, lightly crumbed, and fried. Mind you, I grew up in a city close to a major seafood port (Perth, Western Australia), with a strong Italian contingent. At the start of each year, there's a large sardine festival. Here's a link (not my blog, but gives a good rundown):

I come from a country where fish and soy are our main sources of protein. I like both fish although anchovies in smaller amounts than sardines.

I actually like both, and yeah, I agree that both are yummy if prepared right. But if I have to choose I like anchovies a little better than sardines. Mmmm...anchovies, now I'm kind of craving it, I haven't had one in awhile (hub hates both anchovies and sardines LOL).

You need to try fresh sardines.....Party posted a "how to cook" a couple of months ago......try them on a charcoal grill!

I agree - where's the both button?! My dad ate sardines outta the can a lot when I was growing up, with plain out saltines. :)

I like anchovies and don't think I've ever tried sardines.

Where's the option for both? I'll take fish just about any way I can get it.

Sardines can be good. Never had anchovies though.

I've never had anchovies, but sardines are AWESOME. I've been meaning to try an anchovy, but I'm not quite sure how I should try it.

I only eat anchovies when they are mushed up and cooked into stuff so they don't resemble fish anymore. They're great in Caesar dressing, but otherwise I don't love them.

I guess I'm one of the weirdos who LOVE anchovies!
