Crostini topped with piquillo peppers, sardines and spicy mayonnaise

These addicting appetizers top toasted baguette slices with Spanish piquillo peppers and rich, olive-oil packed sardines.



Preheat oven to 475°F.

Arrange the slices of bread on a baking sheet in a single layer. Brush each slice of bread with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Bake for 8 minutes, turn over the bread and bake until golden brown, about 5 more minutes.

While the bread is toasting, whisk together than mayo, hot sauce, lemon juice and capers in a small bowl and set aside.

To assemble, spread a little of the spicy mayonnaise on each toast and top with a sardine half and a few strips of piquillo peppers. Finish with an extra drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and serve immediately.
