Broiled Sardines with Fennel and Olives

Lisa Turner | Delicious Living
  • Serves: 8 people

This Mediterranean classic makes a marvelous appetizer on crostini or any toasted bread. Or toss with cooked linguini and top with shredded Asiago cheese for a fast entrée — not your ordinary dinner!

Directions
  1. Preheat broiler. In a medium bowl, combine olive oil, garlic, and crushed red pepper. Add fennel slices and mix with fingers to coat.
  2. Arrange sardines in a 9×13-inch baking dish. Scatter olives around sardines. Scatter fennel slices over sardines and olives. Broil on middle rack for 6-8 minutes. Remove from oven and stir to mix. Season with salt and pepper, and sprinkle with minced parsley. Serve at once.
