Grilled sardines







Cook Time

10-15 Min


  • 12 large fresh sardines
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 6 slices white bread, toasted
  • Grill the sardines for a few minutes under a hot grill until tender, turning frequently.
  • Trickle the lemon juice over the top of the sardines, and serve on toast while still warm.


  1. Fish Freshness:
    • Use fresh sardines and ensure they are properly cleaned. Fresh fish should have a clean, ocean-like smell.
  2. Grill Safety:
    • Be cautious when preheating and using the grill. Follow safety guidelines and keep a safe distance.
  3. Olive Oil Flare-ups:
    • Olive oil can cause flare-ups on the grill. Be prepared to manage flare-ups by having a spray bottle of water nearby.
  4. Watch for Bones:
    • Even though sardines are generally small and have edible bones, remind diners to be mindful of them.
  5. Grill Utensils:
    • Use appropriate grilling utensils to handle the sardines, and avoid using utensils with wooden handles that may catch fire.
  6. Allergies:
    • Check for any allergies your guests may have and avoid using ingredients that could trigger allergic reactions.
  7. Hot Surfaces:
    • Exercise caution when handling hot grill grates and utensils. Use heat-resistant gloves or tongs.
  8. Supervision:
    • If involving children in the cooking process, ensure proper supervision to prevent accidents.
By following these precautions, you can enjoy a delicious and safe grilled sardine dish.
