Ingredients

  • 1 pound sardines, cleaned and scaled
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Coarse sea salt
  • 1 lemon, preferably from Valencia, cut into 4 or 8 wedges

Instructions

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.
