Step by step recipe

Stage 1 - 3 min.
Tartine du pêcheur
Lightly toast 4 slices bread.

Arrange the sardine fillets on each slice and squeeze a little lemon juice over.

Stage 2 - 2 min.
Tartine du pêcheur
Add some thin slices of spring onion.

Stage 3 - 10 min.
Tartine du pêcheur
Just before serving, top with a poached egg, then salt and pepper lightly.

Scater a few chopped chives over, both leaves and flowers.

Stage 4
Tartine du pêcheur
To enjoy this tartine at its best, the toast and egg should still both be hot when served.
Translator's note: the title might have been translated as "fisherman's toast" but that's what some folks call eggy bread (which is "soupe dorée" to the French). This is a classic "tartine" that can be found in many different versions, so I preferred to keep the French name.
Should be eaten immediately.
Home made.
