  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced, plus extra 2 lemons, halved
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 8 x 100g (3 1/2oz) sardines, gutted (see tip)
  • few drops Tabasco
  • mixed salad, to serve


  • In a small bowl, mix together the lemon zest and 2 tsp lemon juice with the chilli, garlic and oil. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

  • Cut small slits on one side of each sardine. Rub the lemon and oil mixture all over the sardines, rubbing well into the slits and body cavity.

  • Cook the sardines on a preheated barbecue (or over a medium-high heat in a griddle pan) for 3 minutes each side, until cooked through and the flesh flakes away easily from the bone. Put the lemon halves, cut-side-down, next to the fish for the final 3 minutes of the cooking time.

  • Serve the sardines with a few drops of Tabasco, the grilled lemon halves and the mixed salad.
