Directions

Step 1

Season the sardines with salt and freshly ground pepper. Dredge the sardines in flour and shallow fry them in olive oil until crisp on both sides (starting with skin side down). Arrange them in a single layer in a shallow dish.

Step 2

To make the marinade, heat 1/3 cup olive oil in a separate pan and fry the onion, carrot, bay leaves, raisins, and chili until the vegetables are soft. Add the vinegar, wine, pine nuts and sugar. Mix well and then pour the marinade over the warm fish. Allow to cool, and place in the refrigerator. Allow to marinate for a few hours before serving.
