Sustainable Seafood: Sardine, Avocado and Radish Salad with Watercress

Recipe via Food 52

Servings: 4


  • 2 tins of sardines in olive oil, drained
  • 2 avocados, split, pit removed and sliced into rounds
  • 4 large radishes, sliced thinly
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon fresh chives, cut into 1 inch slices
  • 1 tablespoon flat leaf parsley
  • 2 lemons
  • 1 TB extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon each of kosher salt and fresh ground pepper
  • 1 bunch of water cress  (4-6 cups)


  1. Carefully remove the sardines with a fork from the can. The idea is to keep them whole. Place then into a shallow flat container and squeeze the juice half a lemon over them. Sprinkle them with half the parsley and 1 teaspoon of chives. Season them with a pinch of pepper and salt. Let them sit for 15 minutes.
  2. While they are sitting attractively place the avocado into bowls. Now place 4 to 6 sardines into each bowl and then scatter the radishes over the top. Tuck in small bunches of cress. Garnish with remaining chives and parsley. Dress with a squeeze of lemon juice and some more olive oil. Season with salt and fresh ground pepper and serve.
