(Asma Yapraginda Sardalya)

Grilled Sardines Wrapped in Grape Leaves
1 large Sardine, discard guts, if it has few scales on it, just run the knife over the skin to remove, run your thumb to split, pull out the backbone then wash with cold water and drain
1 or 2 grape leaves, wash and cut of the stems

Olive oil
Lemon juice

Rube the fish with olive oil and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper. Put it in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes in shallow plate. Place the fish inside the matte (not shiny) side of the grape leaf. Wrap the fish in a leaf. Brush some olive oil all over the grape leaf.

Preheat the barbecue or oven (grill). Place the fish on the rack and grill for about 5 minutes each side.

Lovely site! I lived in Turkey for a while and the only thing I miss more than the food is the people. I will definitely be cooking up a Turkish feast using these recipes!
