An easy, yummy way to introduce sardines into your diet! (or mix it up if you're already on the sardine bandwagon)
  • ½ avocado
  • 4-6 corn crackers or tostadas
  • 1 can wild sardines (4.3 oz/ 125g)*
  • chopped cilantro, for garnish
  • 1 lime, cut in wedges
  1. Cut avocado in slices.
  2. With a fork, cut sardines in half, lengthwise. Do not de-bone, the bones are edible and highly nutritious! Alternatively, you can mash the sardines up.
  3. Top corn crackers with avocado slices, sardine slices (or sardine mash) and top with cilantro and a dash of lime juice. Or a big fat pour of lime juice, that works too,
* I use Wild Sardines in Marinara Sauce by Wild Planet. I like to buy them in marinara sauce as they taste less strong when eating out of the can. You can use sardines in water or sardines in olive oil just as well!
