As I’ve told you, I don’t really like to cook too much. This simple and quick recipe packs a visual punch with minimal effort. Few meals can be created faster than the 5-10 minutes of prep and 10 minutes of cook time for a family-favorite summer meal. When Mediterranean meets the Caribbean, deliciousness happens.
Preheat oven following instructions for Take & Bake baguette. While the oven heats up, prep the Roma tomato, scallions, and fresh parsley. Set aside. Peel garlic cloves. Slice off tips. Set aside. Melt butter. Set aside.Place baguette on a cookie sheet and pop in the oven. Meanwhile, fire up a grill pan at medium heat. Once hot, pour sardine tin’s oil on the pan. Add in sardines. Apply heat for roughly 7 minutes, flipping sardines halfway through.
Remove baguette and carve off 1 ½ inch slices. Use a pastry brush to butter each piece. Rub garlic clove on every slice. (Now you know how to make homemade garlic bread)Playfully layer with tomato, scallion, parsley, and sardines. Gently place dollops of JaJa’s Pepper Sauce on each slice depending on how spicy you would like things. Voila!
