Recipe Tip: Sardines in Saor

Top Recipe for 2 Persons by Nadia Frisina. All ingredients and tips for getting it right. Sardines marinated in onions, refined with olive oil, raisins and pine nuts.



    1. Step 1

      Carefully unfurl the sardines and remove the backbone. Make sure that the two fillets still remain connected at the back. Dip in flour.
    2. Step 2

      In a saucepan, pour at least a finger's worth of olive oil and heat until it forms streaks. Fry the sardines until they are cooked and have taken on a nice colour. Only put as many sardines in the pan as you can fit comfortably. If necessary work in batches.
    3. Step 3

      Sauté the onion with the sultanas and pine nuts in a little olive oil until they are translucent and soft. Add the sugar, immediately deglaze with vinegar and leave to cool.
    4. Step 4

      Pour the onion mixture over the fried sardines in a bowl and refrigerate for at least six hours.
