  • 6 1/2-inch-thick slices country-style bread
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 scallions, white parts only, trimmed and cut into 1-inch-long pieces
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, stemmed, ribs and seeds removed, and julienned
  • 1 bunch red radishes, washed, dried, trimmed, and julienned
  • 3 tablespoons minced shallots
  • 3 tablespoons salted butter, room temperature
  • 3 (3-ounce) cans oil-packed sardines
  • 6 oil-packed sundried tomatoes, julienned
  • 1/2 cup fresh dill fronds


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

  2. Drizzle bread slices with olive oil. Place on a baking sheet and toast in oven until golden brown, about 10 minutes.

  3. Preheat broiler. Place scallions and pepper on a baking sheet and place under broiler; broil until tender and browned.

  4. Place radishes, shallots, and butter in a medium bowl; mix well using a fork; spread mixture on toasted bread. Using a fork, slightly break up sardines. Divide sardines evenly between toasts and top with broiled vegetables, sundried tomatoes, and dill. Serve.
