One of the easiest ways to cook sardine fillets is to pan-fry them. The fillets cook very quickly, and cooking skin-side down in a hot pan again allows for beautiful crispy skin.
Cornish sardines are caught using ring nets which is a low-impact fishing method aimed at preserving fish stocks. A sonar is used to target shoals of fish and is only deployed when the sardines have been identified – this reduces bycatch. Fishing operations can sometimes last only an hour and it not uncommon for the fishing fleet to fish direct from the harbour mouth. Once landed, the sardines are stored in ice water tanks before being transferred to shore the same day for processing and freezing.
