Method

  1. Pour half the lemon juice and 1 tbsp olive oil over the sardines, then rub it into the fish’s cavity and skin. Lay 2-3 sardines (depending on size) side by side and thread a skewer through the tail end and one through the head end, packing them closely together.
  2. To make the tartare dressing, combine the lemon zest and the rest of the juice and oil with the dill, parsley, capers, cornichons and some seasoning. Set aside.
  3. Season the sardines really well, then carefully lift them onto a hot barbecue. Cook for 3-4 mins on each side, carefully lifting the skewers to turn them, then transfer to a serving plate. Spoon over a little dressing and serve the rest on the side.
