Sardine in orange sauce

I heard that sardine are queens of the Adriatic. Many fish may be queens, but looking at how many sardine there are in the Adriatic, we could say that she really is a queen. The best sardine is the one you buy early in the morning from a local fisherman who has just returned from hunting. If you are not in the position, the market will be ok too. You don’t have to clean sardine, so they say. You just have to squeeze them through your hand in seawater to remove the scab. However, she somehow feels bitter to me, I always clean everything. When you have cleaned it well, or just slipped it through your hands, salt it and roll it in the bread crumbs. The most delicious bread crumbs I’ve tried so far are definitely Schar’s Bread crumbs. They are so delicious that I could eat them with a spoon! Line the sardine in a casserole, drizzle with olive oil and rosemary and bake for about 15 minutes at 220 degrees.

Sardines will be salty and crispy, so it is best to eat them while they are still hot. Try them with orange sauce, it is completely refreshing. The sauce is very simple to be made. Drain the juice of two larger oranges and place in a saucepan to heat over medium heat. Add some honey and a sprig with rosemary. When the juice starts boiling, whisk a small spoonful of flour with some water and pour into the sauce. Stir until thickened. Pour the sauce over sardines or serve separately.

You can serve asardines with toast or crackers. Personally, crackers sound much better to me!
