Sardine lunch for one

I drained a tin of sardines, and mashed them with a fork. I added chopped (flat leaf) parsley, chopped cucumber, black pepper, and about a dstsp of Encona Original Hot Pepper Sauce (a brilliant product).

This mixture was too loose to put in a sandwich; and the bread, which Good for Food on the Blackstock Road gets from the Spence Bakery in Stoke Newington, was so fresh and moist that I did not want to toast it. So I cut two slices, and piled the chilli sardines on top.

This lunch gave me as much pleasure as I might have got from, say, lobster ravioli in saffron sauce.

Agree with you about the Encona. The father-in-law did some work for them a bit back and at the time bottles were falling out of every cupboard in the house.

Some pictures would be nice.

I think that this sounds like a great quick bite, I too like the Encona hot sauce but a word of warning, not all sardines are equal.
I have spent a little more and got smoked portuguese sardines, the difference is amazing.
