First, I burned the toast. I can see why Rachel Ray always says on her show that she is notorious for doing that.
Then, I made the sardine mixture.
After the sardine mixture you mash up the avocados with some salt and a little bit of lemon juice.
And this is the final yummy result (Without the burned toast). Alton Brown, you are genius! I will definitely be making this for lunch again, even Ben liked it. I also hope that he has more healthy recipes like this on his show. Sardines are full of omega 3’s and CoQ10. Sardines are also good for Cardiovascular Health, Memory, Joints, Skin and energy levels.Print
2 (3.75-ounce 2-layer) tins brisling sardines in olive oil
2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley leaves, divided
1 tablespoon sherry vinegar
1/4 teaspoon lemon zest, reserve the lemon and cut into 4 wedges
Freshly ground black pepper
4 (1/2-inch) thick slices crusty bread, such as sourdough, country loaf or rye
1 ripe Hass avocado
Coarse sea salt
Drain the oil from 1 tin of sardines into a small bowl and set aside. Drain the oil from the other tin into another small bowl and whisk in 1 tablespoon of parsley, vinegar, lemon zest, and black pepper, to taste. Add the sardines, stir to combine and set aside for up to 1 hour.
After 45 minutes, put a rack 3-inches from the broiler and heat the oven to the broiler setting on high. Brush each slice of bread on 1 side with the reserved oil. Put the bread, oil side up, onto a cooling rack set inside a half sheet pan and broil 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown and crisp.
Halve the avocado and remove the pit. Smash the flesh in each half with a fork.
Spread the avocado evenly onto the toasted bread. Top evenly with the sardines. Pour any remaining dressing on top and garnish with the remaining parsley.
Season lightly with sea salt and serve with lemon wedges.
