Cheap dinner recipes: sardines with crisp coleslaw recipe - Food and UK recipes to trust - allaboutyou.com

Sardines are the bargain of the fish counter and take minutes to cook. Just fry in a pan with a little oil or grill until golden and crisp.

Serves 4

  • For the coleslaw, halve and quarter 1 small red cabbage (about 350g) then finely slice and put in a bowl. Add ½ finely sliced red cabbage and 1 finely sliced red cabbage. Use a mandolin for the veg prep here if you have one.
  • Whisk together 1 tbsp mayonnaise, 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil and the juice of 1 small lemon. Season well, then pour over the cabbage mixture and mix well.
  • Preheat the grill. Lay 8 descaled and filleted sardines on a baking sheet and grill for 2-3 minutes each side until the flesh is opaque.
  • Stir 2 tbsp freshly chopped parsley into the coleslaw and serve with the sardines and crispy bread. 

Vary the recipe

Add 200g steamed, chopped salad potatoes and 1 tsp wholegrain mustard to the coleslaw for a warm salad alternative.
