Pan con tomate with sardines
Sunday 01 September 2013
I've also made these with fresh mackerel fillets, which work just as well as the sardines with the toast. If you can't get hold of beautiful fresh fish, use anchovies in olive oil instead.
4 slices crusty bread
1 garlic clove
3 very ripe tomatoes
2 tbsp olive oil, plus extra for drizzling
Handful flat-leaf parsley leaves, roughly chopped
Handful pitted black olives, torn
4 sardines, butterflied (ask your fishmonger to do this for you)
Toast the bread in a toaster or under a grill until golden. Rub the garlic all over one side. Cut the tomatoes in half and rub them in, letting the tomatoes break up as you go.
Drizzle with oil and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Set aside. Combine the parsley and black olives with 1 tbsp of olive oil and set aside.
Heat a frying pan over a high heat. Rub the sardine fillets with olive oil and season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Cook skin-side down for 3 minutes, until the skin is crisp. Turn and cook for 1 minute.
Plate a sardine on each piece of toast and spoon over the parsley, olives and olive oil dressing. Serve immediately.
