Coca de sardinas


  • Flour, 300 gr. with leaven.
  • Olive oil, 9 tablespoons.
  • Water, 1 warm glass.
  • Sardines, 12
  • Paprika, 2 tablespoons.
  • Onion, 5 teeth.
  • Parsley, abundant chopped.
  • Salt to taste.
In a bowl, mix the flour with 4 tablespoons of oil, water and a pinch of salt. Knead until the mixture is compact and let stand covered in a warm place for at least half an hour.

While we clean the sardines by removing the heads and guts and the central spine, we open them in half and reserve them. Once the dough is at its point, spread it on a floured dish, place the sardines in a fan shape and season them. Chop the garlic and parsley and spread it over the sardines, sprinkle the paprika and finish watering with the remaining oil.

We introduce it in the preheated oven at medium-low temperature about 40 minutes.
