Whole Fire-Roasted Sardines, Bitter Greens, Burnt Lemons & Walnut Herb Picada
Until recently, sardines were known to Americans only as a strong, smelly fish available in cans. This national Portuguese treasure, however, is a delicious environmentally friendly, omega-3 fatty acids rich fish that can stand up to bold flavors. This OFYR recipe is courtesy of Mona and Jaret of Portland's Tournant, a farm-to-fire chef couple who have built a life out of connecting meals guided by the seasons with local bounty from land and sea. This preparation combines greens and a salsa that complement this tiny but mighty member of the herring family.
