I am a fish lover, especially oily fish. I found this recipe on the bbc website and will try it tonight. It was suggested to serve with toasted bread.


  1. For the tomato and caper sauce, heat the olive oil in a small pan, add all the remaining sauce ingredients and cook over a gentle heat for five minutes, or until the tomatoes have softened slightly.
  2. For the sardines, rub the sardines with oil. Heat a griddle pan until smoking hot and griddle the sardines for 1-2 minutes on each side, or until cooked through.
  3. To serve, place the toasted bread onto a serving plate, top with the griddled sardines and pour over the tomato and caper sauce.
