These came in especially handy for Gwyneth when our table was covered with plates of all kinds of pork. It’s important to keep everyone happy!

Five Ingredients or LessYes
Taste and Texturesalty, savory, smoky
- 1 pound sardines, cleaned and scaled
- Extra virgin olive oil
- Coarse sea salt
- 1 lemon, preferably from Valencia, cut into 4 or 8 wedges
Rub the sardines with just enough oil to make them slick, and sprinkle with salt. Put over a hot grill fire and cook until well marked with grill marks, 3 to 4 minutes; when the sardines are ready to be turned, they will release easily from the grill. Using a spatula, carefully turn and cook for 3 more minutes, or until just opaque throughout. Transfer to a platter, sprinkle with salt, and drizzle with a little more olive oil. Serve with the lemon wedges.
