Sardella Kallonis | Lesbos
Updated: Mar 31
Sardella Kallonis (a sardine called "the Greek sushi") is a fish rich in phosphorus, w3 fat acids and proteins, eaten either baked or salted with frozen ouzo, with a unique flavour.
Due to its low position in the food chain, the "humble" sardine of Kalloni lives less in comparison to other fish, thus it is safer to eat due to its less concentration of mercury.
Additionally, while other fish need to be kept in salt for 2-3 days to "bake", papalines (another name of sardella kallonis) needs only 24 hours.
