Pilchards

Pilchards are a large sardine and whatever you can do to a sardine, you can do to a pilchard. That is chargrill them, can them in olive oil or tomato sauce or bake them gently in vinegar, onions and cloves. Jolly nice too. Especially the tinned ones in tomato sauce on toast.

Charcoal Grilled Pilchards
This simple dish can be prepared with ease in the evening calm of your summer garden for a few unexpected guest at a very modest price.

Serves 4

12 pilchards
4 tablespoons olive oil
salt and pepper
1 lemon, quartered

Clean and gut the pilchards. Season with the salt and pepper and brush with olive oil. Grill lightly for 5 minutes on each side. Squeeze the lemon juice over and savagely eat the fish with your fingers.
