Piquillo Pepper and Sardine Tartines

Tartines are essentially French open-face sandwiches. In this nibble, crunchy toasts are topped with roasted Spanish piquillo peppers and rich, savory sardines. A few drops of spicy sriracha sauce give this sophisticated starter a bit of heat.

Yield: Makes 12

 
ingredients
12 1/3-inch-thick baguette slices, cut on diagonal into 3- to 4-inch lengths
Extra-virgin olive oil
1 garlic clove, peeled, halved
1 1/2 3.75-ounce cans skinless boneless sardines (preferably wild-caught) packed in olive oil, drained well
Sriracha sauce or other hot chili sauce (optional)
Fresh lemon juice plus lemon wedges for garnish
Very thin onion slices
1 1/2 tablespoons (about) drained capers
12 thick strips piquillo peppers or roasted red peppers from jar, drained

 
preparation

Preheat broiler. Brush both sides of each bread slice lightly with olive oil. Arrange bread slices on small baking sheet. Broil until beginning to color, about 1 minute per side. Rub 1 side of each bread slice with cut side of garlic and cool.

Place bread slices, garlic side up, on serving platter. Divide sardines among bread slices. Spread out sardines in thin layer. Sprinkle a few drops of sriracha sauce over each, if desired, then a few drops of lemon juice. Top each tartine with onion slices, several capers, then strip of drained piquillo pepper. Garnish platter with lemon wedges and serve.


What to Drink:

With the tartines, pour a refreshing Albariño, a white wine from Spain. We like the Carballal 2008 "Sete Cepas" from Rías Baixas ($15). The wine's mineral notes are balanced beautifully by stone-fruit flavors.
