Here's a lovely canned sardines recipe - you can use normal toast for the kids if they don't like garlic, but I'm going to show you a novel way of making garlic bread that doesn't entail heating a whole oven.

Mashed up, tinned sardines make a fabulous sandwich and they are considered to be one of your oily portions of fish a week.

They are a good source of protein and omega oils - very heart healthy- they're also extremely tasty.

Add them to pizzas, sandwiches, quiches, pasta dishes - they're very versatile and inexpensive. Do check out the links at the bottom of the page here for more canned fish recipes - you can substitute sardines in virtually all of them.

I had a sick dog who wasn't wanting to eat - the vet advised me to try him on canned sardines and I did - just picked up a bit on my fingers and let him lick it off - it worked a treat and he began to eat again - what's good enough for my dog, is good enough for me :-) I didn't try him with the salad...

Sardine Salad
2 120g cans sardines
8 slices bread
1 garlic clove - peeled

Olive oil
Lemon juice
1 small lettuce - shredded
4 tomatoes - sliced
1 small red onion - peeled and sliced thinly
1 red pepper - deseeded and sliced thinly
4 hard boiled eggs - quartered
salt and pepper to taste

Heat your grill and brush one side of your bread with olive oil - at this point, if you want garlic bread, then rub the clove over that side of the bread - toast until browned.

Divide your salad between four plates and drizzle a little oil over it and a twist of salt and pepper and a squeeze of lemon.

Once the bread has toasted, divide the sardines between the salad

Serve straight away with the garlic bread - you can use extra dressing if you like, mayonnaise, vinaigrette, but I find just a little good virgin oil and lemon juice is fine.

You could of course use fresh sardines in this recipe - clean, split and bone the sardines, season and brush with oil and then grill for about 2 minutes either side.
