This recipe is very popular in Morocco. Many street vendors and restaurants list Sardines in their menus especially during summer time. Charmoula is a traditional Moroccan marinade that goes very well with fish. It is absolutely delicious.
1- Prepare the Charmoula by mixing all the ingredients of the Charmoula together.
2- Place one sardine fillet skin-side down and spread the surface with charmoula. Cover with another sardine fillet, skin-side up.
3- On high heat, pour the oil into your pan and let it heat up for 5 minutes. When the oil is hot, reduce the heat. Dredge the stuffed fillets with flour on both sides and fry them in the oil for 5 minutes on each side.
4- Use paper towel to drain the excess oil from the fillets.
Serving: Serve the sardine fillets immediately. Squeeze some lemon juice on the fillets for additional flavor.
