A tin of sardines, crackers, and an apple make for a cheap, nutricious lunch.

Canned anchovies are good for adding salt to a sauce.

I use tuna (technically in a pouch) and canned oysters in salad all the time. They are fine. Salmon also comes in pouches, but I've found it very bland.

Smoked oysters are a treat

I love canned sardines/herring. Eat it all the time.
Cheap and full of omega 3 rich protein.

According to epicurious, you can throw a dinner party using tinned fish.
Tinned fish isn't just delicious, healthy and sustainable—it's a time saver.

In Sweden its a delicacy.
Summer has finally come to an end. For those in northern Sweden it means one thing: surströmming season is here! Now, before you go off and text your Swedish…

Trader Joe's canned salmon is actually very flavorful and works well in sandwiches and salads.

So R15 what Ramen based delicacy is your go-to lunch?
|by Anonymous||reply 19||04/14/2019|
I'll pick that up R17 (at $3.29 a can that is pretty good). The salmon in a pouch I've tried is really dry, but I haven't seen that in canned so maybe worth a shot.

Sardines and Smoked Oysters are both delicious. I like them on Ritz Crackers. Also a jar of Pickled Herring is usually in the fridge.

There's a James Beard recipe that used canned oysters. I don't know if it's any good, but here ya go.

R22, I made that years ago. It was very tasty. Thanks for the reminder. I need to make that again.
Also, I love anchovies.
|by Anonymous||reply 23||04/14/2019|
R20 - it's a huge portion, too. I could make almost a week's worth of sandwiches from one can. I blend the contents of the can with TJ's mayonaise (I know, I sound like a Trader Joe's shill, but their mayo has such a nice vinegary zip to it!), finely diced onion, very finely chopped cilantro and dill, finely chopped green chili, and finely chopped celery, touch of salt n pepper. Goes great on toasted bread with cucumber and tomato.
Be aware, the TJ's salmon in the large can has skin and bones -- the bones are meant to be eaten, but it's not everyone's thing.

If you're on a budget you can't beat a can of tuna, I can make several meals off of a 6oz can.

King Oscar sardines in extra virgin olive oil are delicious.

Small fish accumulate much less mercury in their systems than larger fish, so they are one of the healthiest and safest wild seafoods. Kippers (smoked herring) is always delicious, and pickled herring is also quite tasty. A 6 oz can of nearly any fish is essentially two servings of protein, so you can either serve two people with it, or make it into two meals with some extender (like mayonnaise) - plus you are getting a whopping dose of your good omega 3s.

Tins look awful;
The cost and effort of making strong tins to be used just once must be VERY un-ecological

You've obviously never been in prison. They allow you to have a toaster oven, so on a cooking slide brothers be cooking salmon and other seafood dishes.
But here's the thing: You're only allowed TINNED seafood in the slammer.

Good-quality tinned fish is highly prized in Spain, and is featured in the best tapas bars.

Are the anchovies and sardines already gutted or are they put whole in the can? It grosses me out when I see people pulling whole fishes out of the can, head, eyeballs and all, and eating the whole thing.
|by Anonymous||reply 45||04/15/2019|
Don't they still have bones and scales and guts?

r46, yes, they have bones and scales, you will need to de-bone and fillet.
|by Anonymous||reply 48||04/15/2019|
They don’t have scales, they sometimes have skin that has been de-scaled. The bones are soft and you can eat them.
|by Anonymous||reply 49||04/15/2019|
But do they have guts and eyeballs and brains?

No they cut the head off R50. I get the "worry" though. I LOVE trout, but the only place I can find it in my locale is "full" trout (basically the full fish - head and tail), and I do not want to cut off the head and de-bone the damn thing.
I still do it, but it is a pain in the ass.
|by Anonymous||reply 51||04/15/2019|
Then why do I always see whole fish with the head on in cans?

Lisbon has these circus themed sardine stores with cans that come in an array of colors. When I stopped in the clerk explained that the product in the cans is exactly the same, but the different can colors are for different birth years. It’s meant to be a souvenir so you can bring your friends back home a sardine can marked 1968 or whatever. I didn’t buy anything there because I don’t know anyone that much into sardines.

I lover the smoked mussels and the smoked scallops too. The giant sardines at Costco are delicious as is the fresh trout. On toast with sauerkraut and some sour cream or creme fresh makes a great lunch. I don't combine the kraut, but eat it as a side. Kippered herring and smoked trout is another favorite. I often make my own sauces with salsa or fresh tomatoes, a little ginger or chopped onion. I sometimes save the oils for seafood vinaigrettes.

You can scare some tops by dabbing a little of the fish oils on your sphincter. Tops will take a double look to make sure you really have a genuine cock and balls.
