Grilled Sardines on Rye Toast

Consider this post my petition for a tinned fish revival.

This variation of sardines on toast is an ode to my mum, who has been making it on repeat for decades. Quick, easy, and ridiculously delicious - it's a lunchtime classic for a reason. And if sardines aren't your thing? Well.... probably don't make this. It's for the 'fishy fish' people who actually appreciate the beauty of tinned oily goods. #InSardinesWeTrust


1 slice german rye bread
1 tin sardines in olive oil
1/4 red onion, finely chopped
2 large handfuls rocket and spinach
1/2 lemon
salt and pepper
fresh herbs, to garnish


Toast the rye bread, mash up the sardines in a bowl and spread evenly on the toast. Add the red onion, seasoning and a squeeze of lemon before placing under the grill for 5 minutes.

Heat some oil in a pan and saute the greens until wilted. Serve it all up together and garnish with the fresh herbs.
