Greek stuffed sardines


  • Preheat the oven to 180ο C (350ο F) set to fan.
  • Clean the sardines and cut them in half.  With a pastry brush, spread 2 tablespoons olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  • Transfer to a baking pan with a rack, skin-side down, and add oregano.
  • Roast for 8-10 minutes.
  • Grate the tomato on a box grater and drain it to remove the whole moisture. Transfer to a bowl. Alternatively, you can pour the whole tomato into the bowl and add 2 tablespoons dried breadcrumbs in order to soak up the whole moisture.
  • Add salt, pepper, the garlic grated, 2 tablespoons olive oil, the parsley finely chopped, the green part of the spring onions finely chopped, the zest and the juice of the lemon, and mix.
  • Divide the filling from the bowl among half of the sardines and cover with the other half.

For the olive oil-lemon dressing

  • In a bowl add the mustard, the lemon zest and juice, the honey, and mix with a hand whisk.
  • Add the olive oil very slowly, whisking constantly.
  • Add salt, pepper, and mix. If the dressing is too thick, add 1 tablespoon water to thin it out.
  • Pour it over the sardines, sprinkle with parsley, and serve with lemon slices.
