  • Step 1

    It’s important to remember to soak bamboo skewers in cold water for at least half an hour before using so they don’t scorch.

  • Step 2

    Mix together the lemon zest, rosemary, parsley, garlic, olives, capers, salt and pepper. Set to one side. Preheat the grill to high. Pierce each sardine from head to tail with a skewer. Lay them on a lightly oiled baking tray and sprinkle them with some extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper. Grill for 2 minutes on each side.

  • Step 3

    Serve the skewered sardines scattered with the herb mixture, drizzled with a little extra oil and with the lemon wedges alongside.
