Grilled Fresh Sardines

DL Staff | Delicious Living
  • Serves: 4 people

Sardines provide a rich source of heart-protective omega-3 fats, with an added bonus of calcium from the small bones. Fresh sardines are becoming more widely available. They taste completely different from any canned sardines you have ever tried.

  1. Remove fish heads, if desired, and discard. Rinse sardines under cold water. Brush with olive oil and sprinkle lightly with salt.
  2. Place sardines on a grill or under a hot broiler. Cook about 2 minutes per side, until flesh is just firm and skin lightly browned. Serve immediately with fresh lemon wedges.
