To cook sardines:
Lay the sardines out in a single layer in a baking dish. Sprinkle them evenly with the lemon zest, a few drizzles of olive oil, salt and pepper and set aside. Go to work on the salad. When salad is done, place them under the broiler and broil for 2-3 minutes or until cooked through.
Whisk oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add tomatoes, beans, onion, basil and capers. Toss to combine.
Place bean salad on a large serving platter and top with broiled sardines. Garnish with fresh parsley leaves
