Baked Fresh Sardines

Baked Fresh Sardines

Take a peek into our cupboards and you’ll almost always find one or two tins of sardines on stock. It’s a very versatile fish and particularly frugal from a tin. However, a certain something is lost in translation; fresh sardines are among my favourite fish. Oily and packed with flavour, they may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but Baked Fresh Sardines are a treat.

Prawns and frugal. Not two words you’ll often hear bungled into the same sentence. But there they are. And while this recipe may exist at the very edge of what I’d consider frugal, it is nonetheless a fantastic way to enjoy these tasty crustaceans without overspending. The key? As with any expensive ingredient, don’t consume too much. Savour the flavour of just a few.

Traditional Greek Salad (Horiatiki)

Traditional-Greek-Salad-Recipe

Forget the warmth, sunshine and shorts. If there’s one thing I’m made jealous of by visiting a Mediterranean country, it’s the beauty and flavour of its vegetables. Peppers, aubergines, cucumbers, tomatoes, onions; you name it – it’s bigger and better.

The tomatoes alone in countries like Greece and Spain almost force me to up roots. And it’s those ingredients that make the Traditional Greek Salad a dish best eaten abroad. Still, get your hands on some good quality native veggies and you’ll emerge from dinner happier than you went in.
