Portuguese Sardines with Baby Potatoes

Fresh grilled sardines are a treat, and found throughout restaurants in Portugal. Their diminutive size makes them perfect for cooking whole in Suvie. We serve our sardines with simple boiled potatoes, thinly sliced red onion, and lots of olive oil and red wine vinegar. You can double this recipe if you’d like to serve 4 people.
