A WARM SALAD OF SARDINES AND BABY POTATOES

Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 8 baby potatoes, peeled

  • olive oil
  • 2-3 rindless bacon rashers, sliced
  • 12 sardine fillets
  • olive oil spray
  • 1 tbsp white wine vinegar

A warm salad of sardines & baby potatoes

Method

  • Preheat overhead grill to highest degree.
  • Cook the potatoes in lightly salted, boiling water until just tender. Drain well and slice, when cool enough to handle.
  • Then heat a little olive oil in a heavy-bottomed pan and gently sauté the potatoes until golden on both sides, adding the bacon after turning.
  • Place the sardine fillets on an oven tray, skin side up. Spray with oil, season and cook under the overhead grill.
  • To make the vinaigrette, whisk the vinegar with the garlic and mustard until well combined. Then add equal amounts of olive and vegie oil, little by little, to reach dressing consistency.
  • Put the tomatoes and chives in a large bowl, together with the potatoes and bacon, and gently toss with the mustard vinaigrette to taste.
  • Mound the salad in individual bowls (or on plates) and top with the sardines, a sprinkling of dressing and a little cress.
  • Serve with good crusty bread on the side.
