“Grilled, baked and fried, sardines are eaten in all Mediterranean coastal ports. I have chosen to stuff these sardines to make a more robust dish. If you find that pomegranates are out of season, dried cranberries make an acceptable and appropriately tart substitute for the crimson pomegranate seeds.”
