Layer a baking dish with finely chopped garlic and coriander. Place butterflied sardines on top. These are sardines from which the middle bone is removed. You can sit with a pair of tweezers and remove all the bones but people like me who are very comfortable eating fish can let it be.
Drizzle olive oil and mix them up. Place lemon and tomato slices on top. If you are very particular about the taste remove the lemon skin as it will bring in a little bitterness. Do not keep any lemon seeds.
If you dont want it saucy then use a flat pan. The baking dish will collect the oils and keep the fish in an poached kind of state.
This recipe is loaded with goodness and a huge kick of flavor.
