Greeks love appetizers, but then again who doesn’t. On Sunday I had planned to make a few appetizers to nibble on before our late lunch. My husband wanted Sardines, so on Saturday morning, I headed to our local fish store. I bought a couple of Fresh Sardines. The cool thing about my fish store is that they can clean (scrape scales) fish. 🙂 This saves me so much time and cleaning up in the kitchen.
Greek Cuisine has so many different variations of Appetizers that are so tasty. Sometimes it’s a difficult choice even for me. For example, when my husband and I are in Greece and go out to dinner to a Tavern they hand us the Menu. I am very nonchalant chatting away to my husband about well just chatting, I open the Menu and then BOOM!! what, where, ????!!! what what what???!!! then I roll my eyes and I say to my husband here we go again. 🙂 I sit with the Menu in my hand for about 10 minutes trying to decide what appetizers to order. Seriously, I am not joking!! ohhhh and I consider myself to be up to date with what they are eating and drinking in Greece. Buuuut by the time I get to Greece they have come up with new ideas and I am lost!!!
Summertime is definitely for outdoor activities and BBQ, and of course appetizers. We didn’t bbq over the weekend but I did make a few appetizers and this is one of hubbies favorite…I hope you enjoy it as much as he did…:)
Have a good day and week everyone!!
Roasted Lime and Olive Oil Marinated Sardines

- Wash Sardines thoroughly and place sardines into a baking pan. Place a sheet of baking paper before adding in the fish
