Comments: Grilled Sardines

Comments

I love grilled sardines. I've eaten them in Europe but too bad we can't get fresh ones in Singapore.

Don't forget sardines are one of those mega-Omega-3 fatty acid fish. They're not only tasty, but good for you.

Yet another reason to have them again this weekend. Heaven on a plate!

lovely! i've been eyeing some beautiful, fresh sardines at my local fish market but didn't know how i'd prepare them... thanks for the great idea!

Thanks! Let me know how they turn out!

Sardines. What can one say but heaven on a plate.
Just had a belly full in Toronto Canada. Nearly as good as the first I had in Portimao Portugal.
Living in Florida I cant find any place with sardines so travel is the only option.

Having been to Portugal many times, I thought I was the only American who knew about this wonder fish. Too bad they're hard to find fresh in the States!

Some advise about sardines from a portuguese girl:
yes, they are one of the best meal you can have, but Portugal have a lot more to give;
turn back to the sardines: you don´t have to slit in the belly of the little fish and pull out all the goo, because the goo is not eatable, but give a delicious taste to the sardines; if you couldn't have them fresh, you can use the frozen ones, if you can find; in this case, they go to the grill still frozen, and you just put a little bit of salt when it start to unfrozen, and it is so good as if they are fresh from the sea!!
Bom apetite, as we say at Portugal!!

Tânia, thanks for the Portuguese input. Next time I make them I'll try leaving the "goo" on the inside - I like anything that makes less work and if it adds flavour that's even better!

Mmmm.... I have been to one Japanese restoraunt and taste this meal. I liked it very much! Thanks!!!

I'VE BEEN EATING SARDINES FOR DECADES - BUT THEN I'M
FROM MAINE, USA. OF COURSE, AFTER YOU CLEAN THEM,
THERE AIN'T MUCH LEFT. THE LAST TIME I ATE A PLATE FULL, ONE JUMPED UP AND BIT MY NOSE. IT WASN'T UNTIL
AFTER I FINISHED THE REST THAT I NOTICED IT - JUST GOESTO SHOW YOU HOW SMALL THEY CAN BE. SO, THE
POINT IS, JUST BECAREFUL WITH YOUR FOOD, AS WITH SO
MANY THINGS IN LIFE. BETTER TO BE BITTEN BY A SARDINE
THAN TO GET A CARROT STUCK IN YOU NOSE.

To the poster from Maine -

Hi,

If anyone's from Atlanta or nearby you can get them fresh at the Dekalb Farmer's Market. This will be my first time cooking them fresh, I've only had canned. Thus my reason for coming to the site for recipes.

I did camp one summer by the shores of Algiers, North Africa. All we ate those two weeks was grilled sardines, water melon, goat cheese, green olives and red wine. Man, that was Greaaaaaaaaaaaaaat!

I had grilled sardines for the first time in Cannes last month, and I'm still daydreaming about them. (Although when they say grilled, they meant grilled in a broiler, not on a charcoal grill.) We ate some pretty incredible meals while we were there, but the sardines were the simplest and the best, and absolutely smashing with the crisp, dry roses. Must get to the fishmarket...

@mbutterfly thanks for the suggestion about DeKalb Farmer's Market in Atlanta. I was wondering if they had them there. I had them in Barcelona last year and simply feel in love with them. Grew up on canned sardines and the fresh well there's just no comparison. Thanks for the receipes. With Thanksgiving coming soon this will come in handy
