  1. Presenting these grilled tasty thangs over a fresh salad of mixed greens is perfect. Most folks hear the word “sardines” and think of the canned variety. FRESH sardines are light in texture and flavor and are perfect for the grill! If you can find them at your fish monger, serve as an appetizer to the main course but just tell your guests they are “grilled fish” cause they will love them – then surprise them with the name!
