    Bergy's Note:

    This recipe was originally from Bon Appetit using Piquillo Peppers but they are not readily available in my area so I have made the recipe "Home" friendly. If you wish to cut back on fat sub an "no oil" spray on the bread instead of olive oil. "No Oil" is similar to Pam. If you like "HOT" sprinkle the sardines with a few drops of hot sauce before adding the Jalapenos or if you like mild use sweet red peppers. Save some lemon wedges for garnish.

      In response to a direct question to Bergy, this is what I did for DH...Drizzled the bread with Olive Oil and baked til crispy on ALL sides but still slightly soft in the middle as is his preference. Removed the bread from the oven and rubbed with a Garlic Clove. Topped with Smoked Oysters, very thin sliced Red Onion, as much Jalapeno as would "stay" and a drizzle of Lemon Juice (Capers were ommitted). DH raved over it! Smoked Oysters is always his "Treat" when we go camping and something he enjoys around the campfire. Looks like I'll have to start thinking more "Gourmet" next camping trip! :) Thanks Bergy for a GREAT treat to serve my husband!!
