ast-recipe/index.html Courtesy Alton Brown - Good Eats "Live and Let Diet" episode:
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
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.

I love this recipe and have been making it a couple times a month since I first heard about it. I think the calories on here may be a little low though. Each can of sardines has 150 calories in it. Try substituting cilantro and other herbs for a different taste. I plan to have this for dinner tonite - 7/12/10
Alton says brislings are milder than regular sardines. They are but they were still too fishy for our taste. If you like sardines or are on the fence you will like this. I have a tin left and will make this again but will change up the marinade. Add garlic and increase the acids. - 1/11/10
