  • 12 sardines, scaled, gutted and heads removed
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 40g slightly stale, white breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 40g feta cheese
  • salt and pepper
  • lemon wedges, for garnishing


  • Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas Mark 6.

  • Get a bowl and put in the parsley, garlic, breadcrumbs and egg. Season with salt and pepper, add the feta cheese and mix up.

  • Open the sardine up from above, running the blade of the knife right along the spine, then slip a small knife under the bone in the belly to separate it. Take a couple of slices off the front of the fish so that they can be opened out more nicely.

  • Spoon the stuffing into the centre of the fish, then close the sardine back up and press it down. Tip out any excess filling into a bowl.

  • Season with salt and pepper.

  • Place on an oven rack and bake in a moderately hot oven for about 10 minutes.

  • Serving Suggestions: Serve with a bowl of lemon wedges.
