    DISCOVER AN AUTHENTIC TASTE OF PORTUGAL

    Our Portuguese sardines are fresh caught in the Atlantic Ocean off the west coast of Portugal and Morocco, and immediately frozen to preserve their distinctive, salty flavour. Sardines have long been a staple for the people of Portugal whose history is tied to the cold Atlantic Ocean where these fish flourish. The Portuguese prefer to enjoy their Sardines whole, grilled over hot coals.

  • Fishwife Recipes

    Traditional Grilled Sardines

    Grilled sardines are quick and easy to make, and generally how they are eaten in Portugal. See how in this recipe from The Fishwife. You will need:

    • 24 fresh caught Portuguese sardines
    • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
    • Salt
    • Freshly ground pepper
    • A handful of fresh rosemary sprigs
    • Lemon wedges

    Preparation:

    1. Prepare a hot grill, making sure the grill is oiled. Rinse the sardines, and dry with paper towels. Toss with the olive oil, and season with salt and pepper.
    2. When the grill is ready, toss the rosemary sprigs directly on the fire. Wait for the flames to die down, then place the sardines directly over the heat, in batches if necessary. Grill for a minute or two on each side, depending on the size. Transfer from the grill to a platter using tongs or a wide metal spatula and serve with lemon wedges.

          Cleaning the fish is no problem, scaled fish would have been first prize but nonetheless it wasn't a difficult task. The fish itself handled brilliantly on the braai and we loved it. Salt and pepper and natural taste combined beautifully with mint and olive Cous Cous.

          Sardines

          The sardines themselves were great, and I know the products does say it comes whole. I think it would be a good idea to let people know that "whole" means that when you receive them, the customer must still scale and gutt them
