Sardines on grill


  • 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


  1. Heat grill or light the barbecue. Season the sardines inside and out, then grill or barbecue for 5 mins until cooked through.
  2. 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.
