Broiled Sardines with Lemon

Share





Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 pounds sardines (8 to 12 large), gutted, with heads on
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Lemon wedges for serving
 




Instructions

 
Step 1: Move the oven rack as close to the heat source as possible (two to four inches away). Heat the broiler until hot (about 450 to 500 degrees Fahrenheit).
 
Step 2: Sprinkle sardines with salt and pepper. Drizzle sardines with the olive oil.
 
 
Step 3: Broil for 2 minutes on each side.  The sardines are ready when they are opaque, the tip of a knife flakes the thickest part easily, and the outside is nicely browned.
 
Step 4: To serve, carefully remove the sardines with a spatula, sprinkle with herbs (e.g., thyme) if you like, and serve with lemon wedges.
