How to roast sardines

It is frozen raw, so it needs to be thawed and cooked before eating. When baking in a frying pan, place sardines on a cooking sheet, cover and cook over medium heat for 7 to 8 minutes on each side. Turn it over and bake it until it is cooked.

Sardine Meita How to eat

I was already convinced by the aroma that drifted when I was baking, but this is insanely good! A bubble wrap mentaiko that snuggles up to the greasy, soft flesh. The mentaiko counteracts the odor of sardines, so all that remains is the deep flavor.

Because there are bones, while loosening

Rice is essential when eating sardine menta. The crisp saltiness and spiciness go well with rice, and the chopsticks go on anyway. The rest is perfect with beer.
