Sardines à la Marocaine

 Sardines à la Marocaine

Most of us enjoy opening a can of sardines🐟  after a busy hectic day, drizzle some lemon juice and it’s all done! But today we will be making something delicious with fresh sardines! This moroccan filling, also known as Chermoula, will spice up your sardine experience and jump start your weekend in a fun, tasty way! What are you waiting for, head off to your local fish market, grab a few fresh sardines (2 per person) and most importantly, don’t forget to ask your fishmonger to clean and empty the fish for you. I had forgotten to and trust me it wasn’t an easy task (specially if you’re not into bloody gooey organs like me!🤢 ) luckily, Mr Petite Cheffe was around and did the job for me!! Merci M ❤️

Nutritional Info:


Sardines have been around for centuries. These small fish are said to be named after Sardinia, an island of Italy, because of the abundance that could be found there. While sardines can be enjoyed fresh, they are highly perishable. This is why they’re most commonly found canned. These small fish are packed with nutrients that can be beneficial in the prevention of a number of health conditions. Some of these nutrients are known to help prevent heart disease or may protect against certain cancers. Here are the main health benefits to Sardines:

They are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids help prevent heart disease due to their anti-inflammatory properties. Sardines are an excellent source of them.

Sardines are an excellent source of vitamin B-12. This vitamin helps your cardiovascular system and gives you energy. In addition, these fish contain a healthy amount of vitamin D. Along with B-12, D is necessary for good bone health throughout your life.

Sardines are an excellent source of calcium. That makes them a good choice for those who are lactose intolerant, allergic to dairy, or need more calcium in their diet. This can also be helpful during pregnancy if you need alternative forms of calcium for the health of your baby.

Sardines also have protein, which is essential for you to build healthy bones and muscles. Protein also helps create antibodies that keep our immune systems strong. As well, it takes nutrients and oxygen to all the parts of the body.
