Cook Healthy and QuickMake sure you use sustainable sardines for this delightful Mediterranean dish. You don’t need to descale or brush the fish with oil. Sardines are one of the best sources of omega-3 fatty acids.

How to Make It
  1. Gut the sardines—or have the fishmonger do this for you—leaving the heads and scales in place. Gutting is easily done by pushing your index finger through the soft belly and scooping the innards from the cavity. Sprinkle the flanks with salt.
  2. Heat a heavy-bottomed metal pan, broiler, or barbecue grill until it is really hot. Grill or broil the sardines fiercely, turning them once, until the skin blisters and turns black. Cook for 2–4 minutes on each side, depending on the thickness of the fish. Serve with quartered lemons.
