Grilled sardines Recipe

This is quite simply a fantastic recipe for sardines. Sardines are extremely healthy - an excellent source of omega-3, B12, and selenium - and just as important: they're the cleanest, healthiest fish to eat, and also sea-friendly.

While most people associate sardines with the canned variety, "real" sardines are something else entirely.

They turn out crispy on the outside, tender and ultra-flavorful inside. II buy them frozen at my local supermarket. They're really inexpensive, and here's a funny tip: my dogs love to eat the heads and tails, so nothing goes wasted, plus it's good for them! Enjoy!
Grilled sardines


•8-10 whole sardines, fresh or frozen
•1 tsp. salt


Grill about 5-7 minutes each side.

When done, fish will appear golden and the skin will be crisp.


Very easy, muito facil !!!

Hey Jaoa, if you don´t have a grill can you put them in a toaster?
Thanks alot.
I have been told to eat Sardines twice a week. They don't have them frozen in my supermarket. Only in a Tin. Still. This is great if I do find them frozen, they are always very cheap, I like them with tomato sauce or with mustard. Great for a liver cleanse, and skin , hair, recommended to me by Specialist.cheering
