Ingredients

  • 16 sardines
  • oil, to coat
  • sea salt
  • wedges of lemon

Method

  • Wash and gut the sardines. If you’re not squeamish, it’s as easy to do with your fingers as it is with a knife, as the flesh is so soft. Dry the fish, then toss them in olive oil.

  • Put them onto an oiled fish grill, scatter with salt, then grill for 1 or 2 minutes on each side. Serve with wedges of lemon.

Top Tip

This works just as well with Cornish pilchards. All these oily fish give you a heart-healthy portion of omega-3 fatty acids
