How to Make Steamed Sardines with Citrus Sauce?
Sort and clean the sardines with their heads or, if desired, without their heads.
Place the butter cubes at the bottom of the pan in which you will cook the fish and add the onion slices on it. Then put the fish in the pan according to a certain alignment.
Add parsley and garlic on it and season with salt and pepper. Then drizzle the olive oil evenly and add the water.
For the citrus sauce, squeeze the juice of the lemons and oranges, grate the rinds. Mix the sauce with the help of a blender along with the olive oil and fresh thyme.
