Number of Servings: 2


    Half an avacado
    1 can good quality sardines, ideally in olive oil. You'll want to drain them of the majority of the oil, but leave a little because it'll add a little extra fishyness to the sauce when you're done.
    2 slices good whole wheat
    Olive oil - You could leave this out and just use more of the olive oil in the can but I prefer to use some of my own since I'm sure the oil I buy is better than what's used to pack the sardines.
    Vinegar (cider or rice, i've tried a good balsamic and it gets largely lost)
    Lemon zest

    I like hot sauce, ideally something more robust and not too vinegary/sour as the lemon/vinegar will take care of that


toast the bread, toss the sardines in the olive oil and vinegar with some salt/pepper (and a personal favorite; hot sauce) ideally substitute the lemon juice for some lemon zest, smoosh the avocado onto the bread and top with the sardines and remaining sauce.
