Fresh Sardine Snacks
|Lemons juice||4 Tablespoon (From 2 Lemons)|
|Dijon mustard||4 Tablespoon|
|Dried tarragon||1 Teaspoon|
|Fresh sardines||1 Pound, cleaned|
|Vegetable oil||2 Cup (32 tbs) (For Frying)|
Whisk the lemon juice, mustard, and tarragon together.
Lay the sardines in one layer in a nonmetal dish and pour over the lemon juice mixture.
Leave the sardines to marinate for 1-2 hours, turning them in the marinade occasionally.
Heat oil to a depth of about 1/2 inch in a frying pan over medium-low heat.
When hot, shake the excess marinade from the sardines and transfer them carefully to the oil.
Reduce the heat, partly cover, and fry the fish gently for 10-15 minutes, turning them occasionally.
Drain the sardines on paper towels and serve them warm or at room temperature with cocktail picks for skewering.
