“Fresh sardines are fried to a crispy golden brown, and drizzled with a garlic and white wine vinaigrette then topped off with a sprinkling of fresh mint leaves. Serve this appetizer with a good white wine.” - by Salvatore
Original recipe yields 4 servings
- Prepare the sardines by removing the heads and back bones. Rinse and pat dry. Dredge in flour, shaking off any excess.
- Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, fry the sardines a few at a time until brown and crispy. Remove to a large serving plate, and keep warm.
- In another skillet over medium heat, heat a bit of the oil. Add garlic, and cook for about half a minute. Add the wine and vinegar, and allow the mixture to simmer, stirring occasionally. When the liquid has reduced by about half, pour the sauce over the sardines, and sprinkle with fresh mint. Let stand for about 1 hour before serving to allow the fish to marinate.

"Delicious! The combination of sardine, dressing and mint was refreshing. I would have appreciated more guidance on how to prepare the sardines, however. Removing the heads was easy, but it took a f..." See moreew mangled fish before I realized that you can remove the backbone by (a) cutting the fish open along full length of belly, i.e. butterflying the fish, (b) carefully lifting the backbone by lifting it gently, starting with the tail, then (c) folding the fish back up before frying. Once I had all that figured out, the rest was a piece of cake!"
"Very tasty. A flag went up when I saw mint(???) in the ingredients but have no fear. It all works together very well (I kept everything warm in the oven on the platter after adding the vinegrette and ..." See moreshredded mint). Still recognizble sardine taste. By the way, those fresh (frozen) sardines cost me $2.80 at the local oriental market.."
