1 BIO lemon
70 g of flour
50 g of green olives
50 g black olives
5 stems of parsley
1 white bread

Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
Wash parsley and shake dry. Squeeze juice of the lemon. Drain green and black olives and cut into small rings. Slice white bread and put aside.
Thoroughly wash sardines and pat dry with kitchen paper. Separate the head and cut along the belly lengthwise. Carefully pull out the spine together with the small bones. Mix the olive oil and 2 tablespoons of lemon juice well and drizzle over the sardines. Salt well and pepper and turn into flour.
Heat the sunflower seed oil in a large pan and fry the sardines golden brown on both sides. Place the fried sardines on a paper towel and drain off excess oil.
Bake white bread in the oven until golden brown.

If you do not have a good fishmonger around the corner, you can also take pickled canned food instead of fresh sardines. This changes the basic tone of this finger food, but also the variation with pickled sardines tastes great, as they are just as good with olives, lemon and parsley! Simply drain the oil, fry the sardines briefly in a pan and with the lemon olive oil you can brush the white bread before roasting!
As sardines one calls only the young animals of this fish type. The full-grown sardines call themselves Pilchard. These become up to 30 cm long. On the other hand, we mainly eat the young, smaller fish with a length of 8-15 cm. Sardines are very healthy and provide us with Omega 3 fatty acids as well as the essential trace element iodine. It is important that you prepare them quickly after the purchase, because even with this fish: only eat fresh food!
