Broiled Herb-Stuffed Sardines
It ain’t chicken, folks. But without a doubt, I LOVE these Broiled Herb-Stuffed Sardines!
gluten-free, keto, low carb, paleo, Primal, seafood, Whole30
large fresh sardines
2 pounds total
butter or ghee
green onion stalks
Diamond Crystal kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
melted bacon grease
Preheat the broiler on high and position the top rack 4 inches from the heating element.
Take out your kitchen knife and gut the fish. Cut a shallow line along the belly of the fish and pull out the innards. Rinse the fish and pat dry.
Throw in the butter or ghee, parsley, green onions, salt and pepper into the food processor. Pulse until a uniform paste is formed.
Spoon 1 tablespoon of filling into each sardine cavity.
Brush the skin of the fish with the melted bacon grease and sprinkle salt and pepper on top.
Put the prepared sardines on a wire rack on top of a foil-lined baking sheet and stick them into the oven.
Broil for 5 minutes, flipping the fish at the halfway mark.
Spritz with fresh lemon juice.
Like all perishable seafood, I kept the sardines on top of a bowl of ice in the refrigerator until I was ready to cook them.
