Rub the sardines generously with olive oil, salt and pepper.
In a bowl, combine the garlic, tomatoes, vinegar, basil, capers, lemon juice and chilli. Mix well.
Place the sardines and the bread under the grill and cook for 3 to 4 minutes on each side, then flip the toast and the sardines and cook for a further 3 to 4 minutes on the other side. The bread should be toasted and the sardines warmed through.
Place the bread on a serving plate and divide the tomato mixture evenly between the slices. Top each slice with 3 sardines and season. Serve immediately.
