Sardines on clay tiles with fig leaves

  • Ingredients

    Ingredients for 2 people:

    2 clay bricks 28 x 15 cm

    400g fresh Mediterranean sardines

    Coarse sea salt

    Fennel seeds

    Fig leaves, vine leaves or lettuce leaves

  • Preparation

    Mix the coarse sea salt with the fennel seeds. Then moisten the clay bricks and place the freshly washed fig leaves on top. Place the whole sardines in an orderly fashion and sprinkle with a little fennel salt.

    Cook directly at 250 degrees for about 7 minutes uncovered and smoke with dry vine branches. Serve with toasted country bread with garlic.

    If no fig leaves or vine leaves are available, a moistened lettuce leaf can also be used. Please do not scale or gut the sardines.
