A lovely Spanish idea. Posted in response to a recipe request. If fresh sardines are unavailable, smelt would be an alternative

Easy and great tasting! I made this for an appetiter when I saw that they had small sardines at the local fish shop. It is better with small ones as you don't have to do much to them and they cook quicker so that you don't have to worry about burning the outside to get the inside cooked.
