Sardines are one of my absolute favourite Summer treats. I'm sure they're available all year round, but for me it has to be June/July/August.
They are so delicate, that trying to take a half-decent photo of them cooked is almost impossible; they always look messy. However, that doesn't alter the exquisite taste.
Normally I dust them in seasoned flour before frying in olive oil, but last night I went native, and cooked them as nature intended (beach style). Flouring first would probably made for a more appealing picture.
I had intended keeping one for Freddie (the cat), but gluttony got the better of me!
