Popular in coastal regions all over southern Europe, this is the way to enjoy these oily fish at their very best

Yield: Makes 4 servings

Cooking time: 5 Mins

Ingredients

  • 8 large whole sardines, cleaned
  • 8 thyme or lemon thyme sprigs, plus more to garnish
  • 4 lemons
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed

Directions

1. Rinse the sardines inside and out and pat with paper towels. Insert a sprig of thyme inside each fish. Place them in a shallow nonmetallic dish. Grate the zest and squeeze the juice from 3 of the lemons. Whisk the lemon zest and juice, oil, cumin, and garlic together in a bowl. Pour over the sardines. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.

2. Preheat the broiler. Transfer the sardines to an oiled broiler rack, reserving the mariande. Broil for 2-3 minutes on each side, basting with the marinade.

3. Thinly slice the remaining lemon. Transfer the sardines to a serving platter and serve immediately, garnished with the lemon wedges and more thyme sprigs.

Notes

Prepare ahead:

Refrigerate the marinating fish for at least 2 and up to 12 hours before grilling.
