Avocado Toast With Boquerones and Smoked Paprika Recipe

Vicky Wasik

This open-faced avocado sandwich gets a dose of bright, tender boquerones (vinegar-marinated fresh anchovies), a squeeze of fresh lemon juice, and a light dusting of paprika. The result is creamy, smoky, tart, briny, and immensely satisfying all at once.
