Sardine fillets with tomato pasta

Sardine fillets with tomato pasta

This dish makes a nice lunch when fresh sardine fillets are available. Spaghetti is the pasta type which works best with tomato sauce.

2 servings

8- 10 cleaned sardine fillets
Spaghetti for two servings
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 shallot, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
100 ml good tomato sauce
2 tsp. raisins
A handful of chopped parsley
2 cherry tomatoes, chopped
Freshly ground black pepper

Preheat the oven to 200° C, roast.

Place the sardine fillets in an oven- proof dish and roast for 10 minutes.

In a saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium heat and sauté the shallot, garlic, and raisins for about 5 minutes. Add the tomato sauce and simmer about 5- 10 minutes while roasting the sardine fillets.

At the same time cook the spaghetti according to the advice on the package, usually for 8- 10 minutes.

Drain the pasta and place it back to the casserole. Add the tomato sauce and parsley to the pasta and mix.

Divide the tomato pasta in the centre of two bowls and place the sardine fillets around the pasta. Decorate with chopped cherry tomatoes and grind over some black pepper.
