I was glad to have your participation, Brett.

Have you ever checked with Swan Oyster Depot about sardines? It's best to call them and see what they have that day, but I often get anchovies from them and seem to recall them having sardines ... they are seasonal, though (and I don't remember the season). I don't know where they get them. Another thought is to find out where Hayes Street Grill gets their sardines. Let me know if you find them, otherwise I will keep an eye out.



Jen, thanks for the sardine hunting tips--I never would've thought to look at Swan. I'll take any excuse to go there, though. I adore that place! I know that Patty Untermann of Hayes St. gets all her fish from Monterey Fish. I usually buy my sardines from Fresh Fish stand on Saturday, but they haven't had them lately. They should be in season now, so when I find them, you'll read about it, I'm sure.
