Sarde a Beccafico

Stuffed Sardines

🐟 Although this recipe is traditionally made with sardines, I used fresh anchovies. I visited my fish monger and he didn’t have sardines, but he had a beautiful tray of anchovies already cleaned & filetted… so I decided I’d just make the same recipe with a smaller fish. The combination of ingredients in this dish are a marriage of wonderful flavours that I sincerely love. Sarde a Beccafico is a recipe from Sicily, and I don’t think there’s anything that comes out of Sicily’s kitchen that I don’t love, savoury or sweet! These can be eaten as an Appetiser, an accompaniment to a summer Aperitivo or as a Main Course. 🐟
