This ever so simple barbeque sardines dish is the perfect starter to a summer barbecue or served as a really quick light lunch or a great tapas dish. During the August fiestas at Feria Mediodia sardines can be seen cooked in traditional Malaga style – in a wheelbarrow.
You will need:
8 medium to large sardines
Handful fresh parsley
Salt to season
- Clean the sardines and remove the heads, then wash under running water.
- Cook on a barbecue or under the grill for a few minutes each side until cooked through
- Season with salt and garnish with a squeeze of lemon juice and fresh chopped parsley.
Serves four as a tapas.
