Grilled fish mediterranean style


  • 2 sardines pr person
  • 2 large potatoes pr person
  • tzatziki
  • green salad

Marinade for the fish (pr fish):

  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon of garlic powder
  • ½ tablespoon of thyme
  • salt and pepper

In a zip bag or a plastic bag marinate the cleaned fish the night before.

I bought a special holder for fish for our grill so it won’t get burned on the hot grill. My fiancé is responsible for the grilling so I just put the sardines in the holder and he grilled those on the grill by turning the holder around every couple of minutes for about 12 minutes (depending on the size of the sardines – those were medium size). I try to buy fish about the same size when I cook, so it is easier to time to get a juicy and tender fish.

Pre-heat the oven to 190℃. Clean the potatoes in lots of water. I have a scrubbing glove (from the pair I bought in the beauty department) and it cleans the potatoes very nice. Cut the potatoes in thin slices, but leave ca 1 cm to hold the slices like a fan. I covered the potatoes in olive oil, salt and pepper and baked those in the oven for about 30 min.

Tzatziki is very simple to make, use about 200 ml greek yoghurt in a blender, with 4-5 cloves of garlic. Add half a cucumber cut in chunks without the seeds and about one tablespoon of dill.

Make a simple green salad on the side and a some fresh lemon slices.

Serve with a good white wine.
