Push the boat with these posh sardines with toast recipe for when you are wanting to impress!
3 small sardines, cleaned and gutted (or 2 kippers)
1 tbsp olive oil, plus extra for brushing
1 clove garlic, roughly chopped
1 small red or green chilli, deseeded and roughly chopped
Handful fresh herbs, e.g. parsley, chopped
3 slices sourdough bread, toasted
Lemon wedge, to serve
Gently heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan and add the garlic, chilli and herbs. Fry for a few minutes.
Preheat the grill to high. Brush the sardines with a little oil and place under the grill. Cook for a few minutes on each side until cooked through.
