Daggit bandora is a tomato dressing used in various sardine recipes to offset the strong, oily taste of the fish. Here we include versions for baked and fried sardines.
Wash the fish well in cold water, some lemon juice, 1 teaspoon salt, and a few spoonfuls of flour, massaging it carefully. Rinse well, then set them aside in a strainer for 10 to 15 minutes. Pat dry.
