Marinated sardines are prepared in much the same way as marinated anchovies. It couldn’t be easier, and the results are mouth-watering.

Ingredients for four people:

  • 2 dozen sardines;
  • vinegar;
  • virgin olive oil;
  • garlic; 
  • parsley and
  • salt.

Clean the sardines and remove the spine.

Then wash the resulting fillets in very cold water to ensure that they are properly clean.

Dry them on kitchen paper. 

Then place them carefully in a glass dish and cover them with vinegar.

Let them macerate in the fridge for around 3 hours. By then they will have turned whitish.

Drain off the vinegar and season the fillets with virgin olive oil, finely chopped garlic and chopped parsley.

And that’s all there is to it: they’re ready to eat.
