Grilled Fresh Sardines recipe


12 fresh sardines, cleaned, with heads and tails left on.
3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil.
¼ cup of coarse sea salt.
2 tablespoons of freshly-ground black pepper.
12 lemon wedges.


Clean the sardines under cold water. Drain and blot dry with a clean towel.

Pour the olive oil over top of the sardines and gently toss to coat.

Sprinkle the sardines with sea salt and black pepper on both sides.

Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.

Cook the sardines for about 2 minutes per side.
