What is packed with Omega-3 fatty acids, an excellent source of vitamin B-12, and is named after the Italian island of Sardinia? We are talking about sardines, of course! There are typically two reactions to the thought of eating sardines. The first is the group that grew up eating them regularly and recognizes their exceptional taste and convenience. The second and probably more common group can’t stomach the thought even if they have not yet given them a try. If you are in the latter category, we encourage you to give sardines one good shot to win you over, and lucky for you, we have just the recipe to help you out. This Sardine Fritters recipe is courtesy of May 2021 Featured Chef Morgan Simon. Thank you, Morgan, for sharing this delicious recipe for our team and patrons to try!
“If you haven’t jumped on the sardine train quite yet, these are the perfect introduction! Sardines may get a bad rep, but they are jam packed with nutrients and are absolutely delicious (and kids LOVE them!).”

May 2021 Featured Chef Morgan Simon has always loved nutrition and interested in leading a holistic lifestyle. However, when she got pregnant with her son over five years ago, this desire deepened tenfold. She quickly learned how toxic many baby products were (even the ones touted as natural!) and how many dyes and additives were being put in food (even the ones marketed as healthy!). This ultimately led her to become a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner. As an FNTP, Morgan works with women and children to help adopt a nutrient-dense, whole-food lifestyle and eliminate environmental toxins to live their best life possible. Outside of work, you can usually find her cooking up a storm in the kitchen, playing outside with her family, or with her nose in a good book!
