Sardines are one of those oily fish that are tremendously healthy, all that Omega 3, good for your heart etc etc so why do we not eat more of them? Fresh sardines taste great, in Spain they are usually baked, barbequed or cooked whole but there are other ways to enjoy these fabulous little fish:
Get your fish monger to clean and butterfly the sardines.
Fold them over and slide a slice of lemon in between the fillets.
Place on top of kitchen foil on a hinged barbeque grill, season and add a few sprigs of thyme, cover with another sheet of kitchen foil.
Close the grill and barbeque for 5 minutes each side. Great with salad and a generous drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.
