Sardeles Pastes is a Greek appetizer.
It is salted sardines served and eaten raw.
First thing in the morning, the heads are cut off freshly-caught sardines. The skin and tail is left on. The sardines are then put straight into layers of salt. They are ready to eat in the evening.
Sardeles Pastes are served with oil or lemon or both. The skin is removed before eating. Either you do it at the table, or might be done for you. Aside from that, you eat it bones and all, except the tail.
It is usually served with ouzo.
In Greek, “Σαρδέλες παστές.”
“Sardeles” means “sardines” in Greek.
