Name of Recipe: Sardines with Mixed Pepper Sauce
Number of People: depends

800 g fresh sardines, cleaned and guts removed
150 g green, red and yellow peppers, sliced
20 g olive oil
1 garlic clove, peeled
1 tsp salt
1 Tbsp chopped parsley plus a little more to garnish
aluminium foil


Add 500 g of water to TM bowl . Bring to a boil 10 minutes/Varoma Temperature/Speed 1.
Meanwhile, wrap each sardine in a piece of foil and put in the Varoma with the peppers on top.
Place the covered Varoma on top of the TM lid (without the measuring cupe) and steam 20 minutes/VaromaTemperature/Speed 1. Wait a few minutes before taking Varoma off the TM bowl.
Keep 50 g of the liquid left in the TM bowl and throw the rest away.
Add peppers, garlic, salt, parsley and olive oil to the 50 g reserved liquid. Mix 20 seconds/Speed 10.
Serve sardines with the pepper sauce, garnishing with a little freshly chopped parsley if desired.


 If you would like to make this ahead of serving time, leave the foil-wrapped sardines in the Varoma, put the sauce into a small bowl covered with foil and it on top of the Varoma over 500 ml water in the TM bowl. When ready to serve, cover the Varoma and reheat 10 minutes/Speed 1/Varoma Temperature. At this point, of course, it is easy to cook some rice or new potatoes in the internal steaming basket just increase the amount of water as required and cook for required length of time for the rice or potatoes, setting the Varoma and sauce bowl on top when 10 minutes from the end of cooking time.

Thermomix bonus! When sardines are cooked in foil and steamed, they do not make the house smell of fish.
