Ingredients

  1. Mix the herbs, mustard and lemon juice. Rinse the sardines and pat dry. Sprinkle salt and pepper into the gutted cavities, then divide the herb mixture between the sardines, spooning it into each cavity.
  2. Brush the sardines lightly on both sides with oil. Heat a ridged griddle pan until very hot, then add the sardines and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side to brown. Reduce the heat and cook for a further 4 minutes or until cooked through.
  3. Remove to plates and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Squeeze with lemon and serve with brown bread.

Note

When available, sprats make an excellent substitute for sardines. You will need about 650g (1lb 7oz).
