Sarah Wilson shares one of her favourite seafood recipes. Perfect as an appetiser or snack.

I love sardines. They’re a sustainable fish, dirt-cheap and super-healthy. Forget the tinned ones – buy fresh and tuck into this recipe. You can use toast instead of witlof if you wish. They make great hors d’oeuvres, too.

Ingredients (serves 2)

  • 6 sardine fillets
  • ½ cup finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 mild chilli, finely chopped
  • Juice and grated zest of ½ lemon
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • ¼ cup cream cheese
  • 1 witlof

In a pan grill the sardines on both sides over a medium heat with a little oil. Transfer to a small bowl and smash together with the parsley, chilli to taste, lemon zest and juice, and oil. Pull apart the witlof and top with a spoonful of cream cheese and some sardine mixture.
