Tomato Toast with Sardines & Mint
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 him what type of seafood he would like to include in a recipe for EatingWell, he suggested the humble canned sardine. We think Seaver has truly elevated the canned sardine with this fresh-tasting and simple appetizer.
Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate the sardine mixture (Step 2) for up to 2 days.
Cut Down on Dishes: A rimmed baking sheet is great for everything from roasting to catching accidental drips and spills. For effortless cleanup and to keep your baking sheets in tip-top shape, line them with a layer of foil before each use.
