Prepare your COBB Grill and light a CobbleStone and wait a few minutes until it has turned grey. Or, if you don’t have a CobbleStone on hand, ready your briquettes. Place the Griddle and the Dome Cover on your Cobb Grill and let it heat up for at least 5 minutes.

  • Sprinkle a small handful of soaked wood chips onto the burning Cobblestone/briquettes if you want a smoky sardine.
  • Brush the slices of bread with olive oil and toast each side until golden and crispy.
  • Rub the slices of bread with freshly sliced garlic.
  • Grill the lemon halves.

Replace the Griddle with the Grill Grid and the Fenced Roast Rack.

  • Combine stuffing ingredients together in a bowl and spoon generously into the sardine cavities.
  • Place stuffed fish onto the Fenced Roast Rack, cover and cook for 25 minutes or until slightly golden with tender cooked flesh.
  • Mix Salsa Vierge ingredients together.
  • Arrange fish onto a platter and spoon over Salsa Vierge. Serve with bruschetta and grilled lemon.
