Sardina Fish or “Sarda” is one of the “Pesce Azzurro” from Mediterranean sea. Choose the bigger ones and ask the seller to clean from head, guts, scales, bones leaving the two side together by the skin. This operation looks complicate but, believe me, its very easy for any fisherman. For this recipe, instead of Sardines, you could use Anchoves or any other small fish that you like.
