In your quest for healthy foods, don't overlook the humble sardine, a rich source of protein, calcium and omega-3 fatty acids.
1 person made this
1 small red onion, thinly sliced
1/2 cup white wine
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1 bay leaf
Freshly ground black pepper
4 slices woodfired bread or other crusty firm bread
8 large canned sardines, drained
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley
1/2 lemon, cut into quarters and then into thin slices
Directions Preparation:15min › Cook:10min › Extra time:1hour › Ready in:1hour25min
Place the onion rings in a medium bowl. Combine the wine, vinegar, bay leaf and a good grinding of pepper in a small saucepan and bring to the boil. Pour the liquid over the onions and leave to marinate for 1 hour. Drain.
Toast the bread. Divide the onions among the bread slices and arrange 2 sardines on top of each. Sprinkle with the parsley and add a thin slice of lemon.

Rinsing canned sardines (handle them gently to avoid breaking them) will reduce their sodium content, which is often fairly high.
