Step 1

- Preheat oven to 400 ° F
- Prepare the crust: Combine flour, ground almonds, parmesan, pistachios, a pinch of salt, butter and a tbsp of water. Work the dough by making the butter into a sandy texture (the butter should be covered with dry matter). Rub the dough on your hands so as to obtain small lumps. For immediate use put the mixture on a plate (if not form into a ball and cover with plastic wrap and keep cold)

Step 2

- In a lightly oiled baking dish, place the sardine fillets side by side. Add salt and pepper and sprinkle with oregano
- Cover the fish with nut topping and bake for 20 minutes (until the crust is lightly browned). Serve warm.
