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.
- 1 slice country or sandwich bread, approximately 1/2 inch thick
- Extra-virgin olive oil
- 1/2 medium pitted and peeled Hass avocado
- Freshly squeezed lemon juice to taste, from 1/2 lemon
- 3 boquerones, plus more to taste
- Smoked paprika
- Flaky sea salt
Lightly brush bread with olive oil and toast to desired level of doneness. Top with avocado and mash with a fork to cover entire surface. Add a squeeze of lemon juice and top with boquerones. Dust smoked paprika over entire sandwich and sprinkle with salt. Serve.
