Method

  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.

A very tasty recipe. I have not eaten good sardines in years, but these tasted far, far better than the little sardines that come in tins. I will definitely be making this again.

This recipe is great. I make the crumbs in bulk, freeze them and then they're ready to elevate barbequed sardines to supper party standard quickly.
