Spanish paprika sardines

Spanish paprika sardines


  • 8 sardines, gutted
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tsp Spanish smoked paprika
  • freshly ground sea salt and black pepper
  • large handful fresh parsley, chopped
  • lemon wedges, to serve


  1. Mix the garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, paprika, salt and pepper, and half the parsley together.
  2. Place the sardines in a dish, pour the mixture over and use your hands to ensure each fish is properly coated on the outside and in the abdominal cavity. Put in the fridge to marinate for 30 mins.
  3. Spray oil over a barbecue grill or a griddle pan to prevent sticking and cook for 3-5 mins on each side, depending on thickness.
  4. Garnish with parsley and serve with lemon wedges.
