- up to 10 sardines
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1 thick slice bread, blitzed into crumbs
- 1 tsp paprika
- handful flat-leaf parsley, chopped
- lemon or lime
- wedges, to serve
- Heat grill or light the barbecue. Season the sardines inside and out, then grill or barbecue for 5 mins until cooked through.
- Meanwhile, heat the oil in a frying pan. Fry the garlic for 1 min, add the crumbs and paprika, then fry over a fairly high heat, stirring until the crumbs are crisp. Stir in the chopped parsley. Serve the sardines scattered with the crumbs and lemon or lime wedges. Great with a fresh salad, or Italian spinach.
