Barbecued sardines seasoned with sea-salt, quickly grilled, then flavoured with extra virgin olive oil and lime are just sublime!
Wash the sardines and gut or not (adds flavour).
Sprinkle a good layer of sea salt on foil and place sardines on top, then sprinkle more salt over, cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hr.
Remove sardines from the fridge, brush off most of the salt and place on a fish grill tray.
Mix oil and juice of ½ lime and brush over the fish. Grill on high heat on the grill tray, about 4-5 mins per side, then baste with oil and lime juice.
Serve with remaining oil and lime juice then season with sea salt and rainbow peppercorn to taste.
