Here's a bold, low-carb recipe that packs a punch with the zesty flavors of sardines and the subtle sweetness of turnips, all coming together in a crockpot for an easy, yet gourmet meal. Perfect for four!


  • 8 fresh sardines, cleaned and gutted
  • 4 medium turnips, peeled and diced
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)


  1. Prepare the Sardines: Rinse the sardines under cold water. Pat them dry with paper towels. Rub them with salt, pepper, and smoked paprika.
  2. Prepare the Turnips: Peel and dice the turnips into bite-sized pieces. In a bowl, toss the turnips with olive oil, minced garlic, and thyme leaves. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Layer in Crockpot: Place the diced turnips at the bottom of the crockpot. Drizzle the honey over the turnips to add a touch of sweetness. Arrange the sardines on top of the turnips. Lay lemon slices over the sardines for added zest.
  4. Cook: Cover the crockpot and set it to cook on low for 4-5 hours, or until the turnips are tender and the sardines are cooked through.
  5. Serve: Carefully transfer the sardines and turnips to serving plates. Garnish with freshly chopped parsley for a burst of color and freshness.
