Pre-heat the oven to 200˚c
Wash and gut the Sardines (or get your fishmonger to do this)
Finely chop the following – big handful parsley, basil, chervil, chives, coriander (whatever you fancy), 2 Cloves Garlic
Mix with Lemon Zest and half a cup of Breadcrumbs (or thereabouts) – add a lot of Black Pepper
Put the fish in a roasting dish and sprinkle your herby crust and a drizzle of food Olive Oil over the top before roasting for 20 minutes or until the fish is cooked through and has a crust on the outside – you can give them a turn part way through cooking, but they sometimes don’t stay in one piece to do this neatly!
Serve with mayonnaise or zero fat yoghurt…. A tomato salad is also delicious with this; and some roasted potatoes
