What to eat for lunch when you’re stuck at home worrying…

…Sardines with avocado on toast.

I am rather surprised at how awesome this really does taste. I like sardines, but I tend to find them very mooshy and bland, which to me, isn’t really good eats. I was watching an episode of Good Eats last night and this is the recipe that I picked up with a couple of changes because of what I had in the pantry.

Sardines with Avocado on Toast

2 slices of whole wheat bread
1 avocado, halved
1 can of water-packed sardines, drained
extra virgin olive oil
red wine vinegar
dried parsley
lemon pepper
lime juice
fleur de sel
fresh pepper

Toast two slices of bread until they’re nice and dark brown.
Meanwhile, add olive oil, vinegar, parsley, lemon pepper and some lime juice to a bowl and mix well.
Gently add the sardines and toss to coat in marinade. Leave for a few minutes to marinate.
When toast is done, drizzle olive oil over top of each slice.
Top each slice of bread with 1/2 an avocado, mashing gently to cover the whole slice of bread.
Spread the avocado with 1/2 the sardines per slice of bread and gently mash to cover the whole slice.
Dribble a few drops of lime juice over each open-faced sandwich and sprinkle generously with fleur de sel and grindings of fresh pepper.
Serve with a big bottle of lemon water.
