Sardines in Parchment Paper
Sardines, amount depends on their size, 2 large or 4-5 small
Petite size mushrooms, brushed
Bay leaf, one for each pocket
Extra virgin olive oil
Gut the Sardines, wash them with cold water and drain. Sprinkle salt and pepper on the fish. Cut a medium sized parchment paper. Place the Sardines in the middle of it. Arrange lemon and tomato slices on top. Place Bay leaf and mushrooms on top as well. Pour olive oil all over. Fold the parchment paper over the top and the sides to prevent the juice from leaking out. Place the pocket on the oven tray.
Preheat the oven to 400 F. Cook for about 25 minutes on the middle rack. Then remove the tray and open up the paper, discard the Bay leaf. Gently slide the Sardines onto the service plate. Serve with boiled small potatoes, green salad, red onions and lemon wedges.
