We love tinned fish in the test kitchen — especially sardines! We used plain sardines packed in oil for this recipe, but they come packed with all sorts flavors like lemon, chile peppers, tomato, and herbs. Find your favorite!
Open 1 tin sardines packed in oil and pour off the oil into a small bowl. Add 1/4 cup finely chopped parsley, 2 tablespoons toasted pine nuts, the zest and juice of 1 lemon, 1 teaspoon honey and 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes to the bowl with the oil. Serve with the sardines and crackers.
