One of the world’s best-loved small fishes, sardines are something of a superfood -  high in omega-3, rich in vitamin D and calcium and relatively low in mercury. A tin of sardines offers a quick, effortless lunch. Accompanied by a flavour-packed Chimichurri sauce and a slice of your favourite toast, it's bound to become a new favourite.
