Healthy and delicious, sardines have been a bit under appreciated in recent times- but they pack an incredible punch, full of flavour and cook up wonderfully at Roccbox’s high temperatures.     

Grilled Marinated Sardines & Gremolata

This super easy recipe adds gentle smoky notes to the fish, the gremolata delivers a zingy lightness and let’s not forget about that epic crispy skin…

Step 1;

Combine the gremolata ingredients in a bowl and set to one side.

Step 2;

Mix together the marinade ingredients and using a sharp knife, score the skin on the fish and massage in the marinade – making sure to get some in the cavity of the fish too!

Step 3;

Leave the fish to marinade for 30 minutes.

Step 4;

When ready to cook, heat Roccbox up to 500°C and preheat a cast iron griddle pan.

Step 5;

Once the pan is hot, add the sardines and cook for 2 – 3 minutes depending on size (no need to turn them).

Step 6;

Pop the sardines onto a serving plate and sprinkle over the gremolata.
