600g fresh sardines or if you prefer mackerel, cleaned and heads removed

1 finely chopped shallot
a splash of olive oil
2 crushed garlic cloves
juice and rind of 1/2 lemon
juice and rind of 1/2 lime
1 sprig fresh basil finely chopped
1 tsp brown sugar
1 tsp of balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp of poppy seeds


The fish need to be bathed in the marinade for at least an hour,
take them from the marinade, grill and eat immediately.
Char grilled peppers and couscous are a great accompaniment to this dish.
Can't be bothered with the marinade?
simply brush a little olive oil on both sides of the fish then grill,
they'll still be simply delicious.
