    Sardines are so healthy for you and a very tasty alternative to tuna……this recipe is also very delicious and a pleasure to eat….
    It is however, "toasted Rye Bread"…. not crostini !!

    I love every bit of this recipe. I usually have olives and fino sherry wine with this crostini.

    this is a super dish... However ,nothing new about it/ All the Eastern European Jewish people relish this version of sardines. I remember my grandmother from Latvia serving this a hundred years ago. Bring back more up to date versions of these delisious recipes. Enjoy!
