Avocado and Anchovies Sandwich – Bocata de Aguacate con Anchoas

Doesn’t it look delicious? Well, it not only looks that way… it was absolutely gorgeous!!! Soooo good, so quick and so healthy :D.

I’m a bit stressed lately because my husband’s birthday is getting near. He will be 50!!! Isn’t that a special moment in everyone’s life? I want it to be superb and therefore I’m planning a trip and some remarkable gifts… which I won’t tell you now (I don’t want him to read this and find out the surprise).

Today, I was in a hurry and this was my lunch: A delicious and quick Sandwich. All the elements here play contrasted flavours and textures. Simple and nutritive.

Wouldn’t you give it a try? Take one ripe avocado, 3 cherry tomatoes, 5 black olives (without the bone), a can of Serrats Anchovies and a baguette. Spread the avocado on top of the bread, slice the tomatoes in half, decorate with the anchovies and the olives. Use some of the anchovies olive oil to dress it all and…. Bite!

The Anchovies can is also a gift from Serrats they are high quality: the best fish meat preserved in olive oil and a bit of salt. They gave this sandwich a wonderful twist. Try them and spread the word :D.

I am not returning your visits and it upsets me a lot… I’m really grateful to those of you whom keep coming back. THANK YOU!

Buen provecho ♥

As I couldn’t make it with Joan’s Culinary Tour 2010 Mexico and Avocado comes from that wonderful country, please pay a visit to her Roundup and find there more and variated Mexican food :D.

Hi Núria, nice to see you blogging again :-) Your sandwich looks divine. We can’t get anchovies like that around here I don’t think – another reason to visit Barcelona!

This looks delicious – I’m not sure if I can get anchovies where I am. Do you think this would work with sardine?

as anyone that knows me – i could eat an avocado like an apple (we’ll, i’d take the skin off first). this looks like a great sandwich. i think i’d even rather eat it closed instead of open-faced… more avocado and more anchovy!
