Sensational Salt-bath Sardines

Sardines and mackerel are two of the very best BBQ fish, although my personal favourite is the sardine! Encased in sea-salt, quickly grilled, (guts-in) then drizzled with a strong green extra virgin olive oil with a hearty squeeze of limes, simply sublime!

What You Do

  1. Wash the sardines and gut or not (adds flavour)
  2. Sprinkle a good layer of sea salt on foil and place sardines on top, then sprinkle more salt over, cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  3. Remove sardines from fridge, brush off most of the salt and place on a fish grill tray
  4. Mix oil and juice of ½ lime and brush over the fish
  5. Grill on high heat on grill tray, about 4-5 minutes per side, baste with oil & lime juice.
  6. Serve with remaining oil & lime juice, season with sea salt & rainbow peppercorn.
