  • 2 cans packed sardines about 15-18 fillets total
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ¼ cup raisins
  • ½ onion chopped
  • 3 tablespoons pine nuts
  • ¾ cup white wine
  • 20 mini Cretan rusks or about 5 large ones or whole wheat bread cut in small slices
  • salt/pepper to taste


  • Preheat the oven at 375 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius)
  • In a small pan add 1 tablespoon olive oil and sauté the chopped onion until soft.
  • Once onion is soft, add raisins and white wine and simmer until most wine has evaporated-about 12-15 minutes.
  • Remove from heat, add 2-3 teaspoons of olive oil and mix.
  • In the meantime heat the sardines in the oven for about 3 minutes.
  • Roast the pine nuts in a small pan by heating them and shaking the pan, for 2-3 minutes or once they started to brown.
  • Remove sardines, drizzle the sauce on top and sprinkle with the pine nuts, add a pinch of salt and freshly ground pepper.
  • You can serve like this or you can spoon about 2 teaspoons on sliced bread or rusks.
