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.     

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.
