Baked sardines

This tiny, silver and delicate fish with distinctive flavor; and most importantly very healthy, because it contains large amounts of omega-3; tastes better grilled, but I assure you that baked in the oven is also delicious:). When buying the fish, remember that fresh sardines should be silvery and shiny, and their eyes should not be sunken or yellowish, but bright and clear. Fresh fish smell like the sea but have no strong odor, which usually indicates spoilage.

Ingredients (serves 2):

6-8 fresh sardines
a few slices of lemon or lime
coarse sea salt
a few sprigs of thyme


Preheat the oven to 220ºC.

Wash the sardines under cold running water and dry them with paper towels. Line baking tray with baking paper and sprinkle with coarse salt. Place the fish on it and top with lemon or lime slices and thyme sprigs; sprinkle with salt.

Put the tray into the oven and reduce the temperature to 200ºC. Bake for about 20 minutes.

While eating discard heads and guts.

Enjoy !!!

    I was frustrated with how much work it is to submit to food submission sites so I created my own site kind of like Food Gawker. The main difference is that you don't have to submit each recipe.
