BAKED SARDINES WITH GARLIC AND OREGANO!

DIFFICULTY
Beginner

1 qt garlic clove Kosher salt
 1 qt large egg yolk
 ½ tsp Dijon mustard
 ½ tbsp plus 1 tablespoon olive oil
 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
 1 qt Freshly ground black pepper
 1 lb of Sardines from @Peskados, cleaned
 1 qt Parsley leaves with tender stems (for serving)
1

Using the side of a knife, mash garlic and a pinch of salt to a paste on a cutting board. Transfer to a small bowl and add egg yolk and mustard; mix well. Whisking constantly, add ⅓ cup oil, drop by drop at first, then ⅛-teaspoonful at a time as mixture emulsifies and thickens.
*Do not add oil too quickly or aioli will break and oil will separate. Stir in lemon juice; season aioli with salt and pepper.

2

Prepare a grill at medium-high heat. Place sardines on a plate and drizzle the remaining 1 Tbsp. oil over; season with salt and pepper.
Grill until browned and cooked through, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer sardines to a platter and top with parsley. Serve with aioli.

Prep Ahead: Aioli can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and chill.
