Sardines on toast

Migas is a traditional shepherd’s dish of fried stale bread cubes. Add some almonds, call it toast, pop some sardines on top, and enjoy.


Almond migas



1.For almond migas, combine breadcrumbs, almonds and garlic in a small bowl. Heat a frying pan over medium-high heat, add olive oil and breadcrumb mixture and stir until golden and toasted (4-5 minutes). Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
2.Meanwhile, preheat a grill on high. Place sardines on a buttered oven tray. Brush butter over sardines, season to taste and grill, turning once, until just cooked through (2-3 minutes each side).
3.Add parsley and tomato to almond migas, toss to combine and season to taste. Place almond migas on a serving plate and top with grilled sardines.

Drink Suggestion: A cold Spanish lager. Drink suggestion by Max Allen
