Grilled Sardines & Walnut Salad

Happy Monday!
Here’s a fish salad recipe to boost your omega 3 intake.:-)
Make sure the fish is fresh though as I have some bad memories from eating fish not fresh at all.
Here, the accent’s on the dressing. Dijon mustard, egg yolk and lemon goes perfectly with the grilled sardines.
This salad always remind me of the summer and the sea.
So it’s definitely a good start of the week in this gloomy weather.
Here’s what you need for your journey to the sea.
