Introducing Rainforest Sardines
With the widest variety of frozen fish and seafood on the market, it’s no surprise that seafood giants Rainforest Caribbean have ventured into canned seafood. The company recently announced the addition of canned sardines, in both water and oil, to their ever-growing portfolio.
With no-cook time and a long list of health benefits, stocking up your kitchen cupboards with Rainforest Sardines is a no-brainer. The fish are preserved at their freshest and as a result are a perfect way to add flavour and a heart-healthy protein to your meals. Sardines make an easy breakfast, a convenient on-the-go lunch atop a simple green salad or quick snack with crackers.
