fish in a tin

canned tuna

Fish in a tin? Really?! Really. Stay with me now – I promise, you won’t be dissappointed. If you’re already a fan than you know that canned fish is another absolute must-have in the pantry – if not for the convenience and ease on the bottom line, then for the over-the-top health benefits. There is a surprising variety of fish available in a can, which is a victory for those who don’t live near bodies of water – rivers, lakes, seas or oceans, where fresh is hard to come by. Of course nothing can substitute for the real deal, fresh out of water, star of all things clean – but when that’s simply not an option, they’re countless recipes where the canned variety is a very respectable stand-in and in some cases, preferable.

In the canned fish aisle – tuna and salmon fight for top spot, with sardines keeping it a competition. But you can find fish packed in water (most preferable) or if you buy tuna in an Italian deli it will be packed in glorious olive oil, and for me, that’s the way to go – you can also find all kinds of canned fish, smoked, pickled or sauced – there’s lots to choose from. well-stocked kitchen, on the other hand, is a whole other matter, and can be used successfully, if it’s used where appropriate. I’ll leave that for another day. So, in the meantime, crack a can of fish and many-a meal is not far behind – think casseroles, sandwiches, pizzas, quesadillas, stuffed potatoes, cakes, patties, dips and sauces – all quick and easy to get on the table on those busy weeknights that never seem to end – and FYI, anchovies is every great chef’s best friend!
