  • Clean the sardines and make fillets (remove all the bones). Depending on the size per serving we will use from 4 to 6 fillets.

For the ginger oil:

  • Peel the fresh ginger, cut into slices and dip in olive oil.
  • Heat everything up to 100 ºC, remove from the heat and let infuse from 24 to 48 hours.
  • After that time, marinate the sardine fillets, (minimum 5 h and maximum 24 h).

For the escalibada:

  • Roast the red peppers, the aubergines, the garlic and the chives, (it is recommended to blanch them 10 minutes to make them softer). Let them cool and remove the skin.
  • Fry the green pepper, put it in cold water and peel.
  • Roast the tomatoes cut into half with oil and salt and peel them.
  • Once all the vegetables are cooked, cut them into regular squares and set everything aside separately.
  • For the cumin vinaigrette:
  • Mix the olive oil + the sherry vinegar + the salt and the cumin. 

For the fruit vinaigrette:

  • Chop the strawberries, the apricot or peach in syrup into very small and regular squares.
  • Cut the small zucchini into slices and sautée with some garlic cut into brunoise. Set everything aside separately.

For the bouquetiere of fresh vegetables + sage leaves or red sorrel.

For the  basic vinaigrette  


  • Place the escalibada previously dressed with the cumin vinaigrette on a plate.
  • Place the sardines on top with the skin facing up. The sardines can be raw, half cooked, grilled, or mixed in the same serving.
  • Next to it, place the bouquetiere of fresh vegetables dressed with basic vinaigrette.

Decorate with dressed fruit vinaigrette, with a white sprout and salmon eggs.
