Recipe Date:

Serving Size:
Cook Time:
  • 8 fresh sardine fillets
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 2 cups of breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons of chopped parsley
  • 1 cup of cornflour
  • 1 bottle of JOSEPH Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • your favourite oil for frying
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges
  • zest of one whole lemon
  • salt and pepper

Mix the lemon zest, salt, pepper with beaten eggs in a medium-sized bowl.

Mix the parsley and breadcrumbs and spread them over a flat plate.

Coat the sardines in cornflour, then cover in the beaten egg mixture. Finally, crumb the sardines in the parsley and breadcrumb mix.

Heat a 2cm deep frying pan with a combination of your favourite frying oil and JOSEPH Cold Pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil – the addition of a little premium quality olive oil adds much more flavour.

Once hot, place the crumbed sardine fillets into the hot oil and cook for 2 minutes on each side.

Once the fillets have been cooked, place them on a paper towel to drain.

Serve with wedges of lemon for a delicious summer antipasto or with your favourite crunchy salad for a main.

This dish cries out for a crisp, fresh white, and you will not find a better match than our newly released 2018 Primo & Co Verdicchio!

Buon Appetito!
