Sardines "en papillotte"

This is an easy recipe that I have roughly translated/adapted from A Tutto Vapore

Sardines "en papillotte"


20 whole, fresh sardines, (15 cm), cleaned
extra virgin olive oil to grease
600 g of water


1. Dry the cleaned sardines well with kitchen paper. Oil some squares of aluminum foil. Put 2 or 3 sardines on each sheet and sprinkle with salt. Close the aluminum foil parcel and place in container of Varoma. Repeat for the other sardines.
2. Pour the water into TM bowl, position the Varoma and cook for 27 minutes at Varoma temperature on Speed 1. Set the Varoma aside. Open the parcels with caution and make sure that the sardines are cooked.
If not, extend the cooking time by 3 or 4 minutes.
3. Serve immediately in the open foil.


Variation: If you want a more flavourful result, you can add to each parcel a bay leaf, a slice of lemon, a pinch of paprika and a few drops of extra virgin olive oil. Some slices of peppers also add to the colour and flavour.

Serve with slices of bread. Ideal as a single dish for dinner with several guests.
