10 Sardines(2-3 155 gram cans) in tomato sauce
1/4 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon cumin powder
1/8 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper, or to taste
1 Lemon, cut into wedges, to serve
Oil for pan frying


  1. In a deep frying pan, heat about 1 cup oil for pan frying.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk flour, cumin powder, salt, and ground black pepper until well mixed.  Take 1 sardine in tomato sauce and gently toss in the flour mixture.  Careful the sardine doesn't break!  Repeat with remaining sardines.  Set aside tomato sauce for another use.
  3. Gently place floured sardines into hot oil and fry until golden brown.  Gently place on paper towels to drain excess oil, and serve with lemon wedges.

These sardines make the perfect finger food!
