Tomato Toast with Sardines & Mint

March/April 2010

Your rating: None Average: 3.7 (26 votes)

Washington, D.C.-based chef Barton Seaver is a passionate advocate for the health of the oceans. He’s a fellow with the Blue Ocean Institute and is working on a PBS series, Turning the Tide, about food and the environment. When we asked Seaver what type of seafood he would like to include in a recipe for EatingWell, he suggested the humble canned sardine. He said, “Sustainability isn’t just about the oceans—it’s about sustainability for people. Anyone can jump in their SUV, drive to Walmart and buy a can of sardines. I love that! It needs to be accessible and easy.” We think Seaver has truly elevated the canned sardine with this fresh-tasting and simple appetizer.

Try using the sardines packed

Try using the sardines packed in Louisiana Hot Sauce, or else try adding dried tomato chopped instead of rubbing the fresh tomato on the toast.

Did not use the added oil. Sardines packed in oil have enough for me, even after draining. Needed an acidic balance so I added lemon juice. Liked the mint and onion. Interesting.

The flavor combination is fascinating - mint and sardines, who knew? I look forward to making this with tomatoes from our garden. This time of year, the tomatoes at the store leave much to be desired - even the organic "stem" tomatoes.
