pasta with sardines, fennel and walnuts

The thing about fishy-fish like sardines is that people either love ’em or hate ’em. I’m a lover, so sign me up for a big bowl of Pasta with Sardines, Fennel and Walnuts (or pine nuts, if you are sticking faithfully to the recipe). This very classic Sicilian dish also has capers, raisins, tomatoes and lemon in the mix. Although my husband is half Sicilian, the love of sardines doesn’t swim though his blood, so I made this one all for myself. I splurged on a fancier jar of olive oil-packed sardines because I wanted to use that oil in the saucy stuff that coated the pasta. The dish is salty, briny, oily, sweet, and acidic all at once. There is a lot going on, but to me, it all works so well. I have half a jar of sardines left, so I’m going to try another version of this recipe later in the week.

For the recipe, see Everyday Dorie by Dorie Greenspan, and head over to Cook the Book Fridays to see how the group liked this one.
