Preparation

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C. Cook the potatoes in a pan of simmering salted water for 8-10 minutes until almost tender, then drain well.

  • Toss potatoes with paprika and 1 tablespoon oil. Season and spread on a large lined baking tray, then roast for 20 minutes or until golden.

  • When the potatoes are done, toss in the tomatoes, onion, coriander, lemon juice and olives oil. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Increase the chargrill pan or barbecue heat to high. Brush the sardines and the grill with a little olive oil to help prevent sticking. Sprinkle the sardines with 1 teaspoon sea salt – the soft-flaked variety is best – then cook the sardines for 2-3 minutes each side until the skin is scorched and bubbling.

  • Divide the sardines among plates, then top with the salad and serve with lemon.

  • Enjoy!

If you cook the sardines indoors, heat a small pot over medium heat with water, a teaspoon of cinnamon and the peel from one orange, once it comes to a boil, turn the heat down and just let it simmer, that should help.
