  • 8 fresh Gibraltar sardines, cleaned and gutted
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste


1- Preheat your grill to medium-high heat or heat a skillet over medium heat if frying.

2- Rinse the sardines under cold water and pat them dry with paper towels.

3- In a small bowl, mix together the olive oil, minced garlic, and a pinch of salt and pepper.

4- Brush the sardines generously with the olive oil mixture, ensuring they are evenly coated.

5- If grilling, place the sardines directly on the grill grates. If frying, place them in the preheated skillet.

6- Cook the sardines for about 3-4 minutes per side, or until they are golden brown and cooked through. If grilling, you may want to use a grill basket to prevent the sardines from sticking.

7- While the sardines are cooking, place the lemon slices on the grill or in the skillet alongside the fish to lightly char and release their juices.

8- Once the sardines are cooked, transfer them to a serving platter. Squeeze the charred lemon slices over the top of the sardines and sprinkle them with fresh chopped parsley.

9- Serve the grilled Gibraltar sardines immediately, accompanied by your favorite side dishes such as roasted vegetables, crusty bread, or a fresh salad.

10- Enjoy the succulent flavors of the Mediterranean with this simple yet elegant dish that highlights the natural taste of fresh Gibraltar sardines.
