This recipe is fairly simple and can be easily done at home. Simply purchase the freshest sardines available and cook them as such for a few minutes on the grill. Once cooked, there’s no need to scale or filet them, nor remove the head or the tail, nor even subject them to complex aesthetic criteria. Just bring them to the table with a bottle of good Basque cider and let the dinner guests serve themselves. If you like minimalism, this dish is for you.
