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.
Use fresh sardines and ensure they are properly cleaned. Fresh fish should have a clean, ocean-like smell.
Be cautious when preheating and using the grill. Follow safety guidelines and keep a safe distance.
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.
Watch for Bones:
Even though sardines are generally small and have edible bones, remind diners to be mindful of them.
Use appropriate grilling utensils to handle the sardines, and avoid using utensils with wooden handles that may catch fire.
Check for any allergies your guests may have and avoid using ingredients that could trigger allergic reactions.
Exercise caution when handling hot grill grates and utensils. Use heat-resistant gloves or tongs.
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.
