This is the kind of this you want to serve on your summer night dinner party! The sardines are golden-brown and have a nice kick to them, and would work really nice with a fresh herb salad and vinaigrette.
1 Descale the fish, cut off the fish tail, top fin, underside and head.
Take out the guts.
Score the fish so the spices can get in.
2 Put turmeric powder, chilli powder, pepper and salt in a bowl and mix them.
Roll in and cover the sardines with the mixture.
Fry the sardines 3-5 minutes on each side.
Pop the sardines on some kitchen paper to get rid of the oil.
