Grilled Sardines in Saor with Piave Cheese Coating | 15 Minute Recipe

Fish and cheese, are we crazy? Well, yes, but these baked sardines in saor sauce go amazingly with Piave DOP!

Today wine expert Filippo Bartolotta and Chef Sara Lai are attempting something which might seem impossible!

Grilled sardines are marinated in vinegar, onion, bay leaves and a few other ingredients, and then...paired with Piave DOP Cheese

Fish and cheese are not 'friends' at the table, you might say, but in this case our chef has succeeded brilliantly, making sardines in saor even more luxurious and tasty!

By 'breading' the sardines with cheese before serving, we add flavour and creaminess to the dish.

And while Sara works her miracles, wine expert Filippo Bartolotta opens a bottle of Pinot Grigio wine by the Garda DOC Consortium to accompany the very quick-and-easy dinner!
