Asian-Inspired Sardine Tacos

Recipe by @cookingwithrocco

Sardines need more love! These lettuce-wrapped sardine tacos feature meaty, mild-flavored Wild Planet sardines with Asian slaw and a sweet and spicy gochujang glaze. The Sardines are sustainably caught, and an excellent source of clean protein and Omega-3s. This recipe makes for a great appetizer or main dish.

Sardine Recipes





  • 1 (4.4oz) can Wild Planet Wild Sardines in Extra Virgin Olive Oil

  • Romaine Lettuce (or lettuce of choice)

  • Sesame seeds for garnish

  • Lime juice (optional) 

  • Asian Slaw

  • 16oz shredded Cabbage

  • 1/2 cup Rice wine vinegar

  • 2 Tbsp Soy sauce

  • 2 Tbsp Honey (more or less to taste)

  • 2.5 tsp Sesame oil

  • Salt & Pepper to taste

  • Gochujang Glaze

  • 2.5 Tbsp Gochujang paste

  • 2 Tbsp Soy sauce

  • 2 Tbsp Honey, brown sugar, or a mix of both

  • 1 Tbsp Rice wine vinegar 

  • 1 Tbsp Sesame oil

  • 3 Garlic cloves, grated 



  1. Mix all the slaw ingredients together, taste, and adjust seasoning as needed. Set aside in the fridge.

  2. In a small skillet, add all the Gochujang glaze ingredients. Turn the heat to medium and bring to simmer. Lower the heat to medium-low and allow the sauce to simmer for 5 minutes. As the sauce cools it will thicken up, but if it thickens up too quickly, thin it out with a tablespoon of water at a time over medium-low heat. 

  3. Assemble the tacos by adding a fork full of slaw on the lettuce taco, followed by Wild Planet sardines, then a drizzle of Gochujang glaze. Garnish with sesame seeds and a squeeze of lime. Enjoy!
