Sardines of Quiberon The Quiberon Peninsula is located in the South part of Brittany and is famous for its sardines. The tides being quite violent, the firmness of the sardine flesh is well-known to French gourmets.

Since the old days, Quiberon has been a fishing village selling its cooked sardines covered with salted butter as a method to preserve the fish. Brittany is indeed traditionally famous for its dairy products, and mainly for the quality of its fresh butter, which helps protect fish from oxidation and gives it a mild taste.

The Sardines La Belle Iloise are selected with care during the season (from June to November) and all the processing from the sorting to the can packaging is manual. The buttered sardines differ from sardines in oil, which are enjoyed as hors d'oeuvre. Indeed, you can cook the buttered sardines in a frying-pan or in the oven. You do not need to add any sauce or spices, the tasty flavour of the sardines and the butter will simply be enhanced by the heat.

  • You can enjoy buttered sardines as a main dish (a can contains about 12 sardines, 2-4 pers.) garnished with potatoes, for example.
  • You can enjoy buttered sardines as a first course in a salad.
  • You can enjoy buttered sardines in a pie.
