The term "Sardine" was first used by the English around the 15th century. The origin (According to Wikipidia) is said to stem from an island in the Mediterranean known as Sardinia.
At one time, Sardines were abundant there. I've always been interested in these cute little fish. I love them in my salad dressing, especially if they are fresh - Ceaser Salad, uhhh…. They are salty and wonderful, and cooking only enhances them.
One bit of trivia, the fish must be shorter in length than 6 inches to qualify. Thats 15 short centimeters. I got to thinking, wouldn't it be cute to use some of my Gold-leafed Italian frames and paint a small mermaid within it??
This is where I came up with my title, SARDINE MERMAID!
