The sardines balls tagine is one of the most popular dishes in Morocco. Especially in the coastal towns of the kingdom.
To keep the meatballs tender, we add rice to the sardine kefta. But in the recipe I’m sharing with you today, of Jewish origin, we’ll add grilled eggplant.
Not only the meatballs are very tender, but the smoky taste adds a special note to this delicious dish.
The sardine balls are cooked in a slightly spicy tomato sauce (or not according to taste). You can very well add vegetables such as carrots, potatoes or peppers.
This traditional dish is tasty, easy and quick to make, especially if you ask your fishmonger to prepare the sardines for you.
