One night for dinner, I really just wanted to keep it simple but luxurious at the same time. If you’ve ever seen my pantry, it’s quite the collection of canned goods and bottled products. One such product that I love is sardines—the kind I had was Spanish Style in corn oil. I figured, since I wasn’t in the mood to cook anything, I’d just assemble a quick sardine platter for myself.
All it takes are some pieces of toast (I pan-fried them in butter first). And then a little spread of butter (unsalted and cold!). Finally, top that thing with a small slice of sardines. And the flavors just melt in your mouth—it’s so good.
The trick to a perfect sardine platter is, of course, the sardine itself. So make sure you get a good kind. There are so many kinds that have different liquids they have them in (wine, lemon, oil, etc.) so try which ones you think sound good, and platter away!
