Cooking Instructions:

Melt the butter in a sauce pan, the add the garlic, chives, and paprika. Stir once.

Cover with the lid of a pot and pan-fry for 3 minutes on each side until crispy.

Place on your serving dish and drizzle the butter mixture over them. Serving these luke-warm is fine.

Options: For more crispness, you can fry the sardines in a wok after rolling them in flour. You can start with fresh sardines to do this. Roll them in flour and fry them in peanut oil. For a more earthy herb flavor, add some thyme to the sauce.
