Kicking off our new series, I went with a can I think is a great starting point for most tin fish beginners. Fish Wife x Fly By Jing Collab features high quality salmon in a familiar and flavor packed sauce. Wary of spice? Never fear! This can has a very mild spice level but is jam packed with flavor.
Week three features something a little different from our usual recommendations and is geared towards those looking to try some exciting flavors: thai fried baby clams! A little sweet, a little spicy, a little tangy – recommend trying on some bread with a little avocado. Delicious!
These anchovies have been stuck on my mind since we had them for date night. I have already re-ordered more tins so we never run out! We have Spain to thank for this perfect, unique and tasty introduction to how incredible tinned Anchovies can be.
A frequently requested item is this week’s Tin Fish of The Week: Octopus! If you’re one of the many asking for an Octopus recommendation or are just looking to try something new – this tin is for you! Sara is the yogurt queen and tiny fish lover from Top Chef turned tiny fish cannery. This tin is tender with a light lemon dill flavor. Delicious!
My current number one favorite tin is this beauty. Fangst Blue Mussels. This type of mussel is found in Denmark. They grow slow in the cold water and develop a sweet richness. The mussels are small and bursting with flavor.
This week’s tin is… a mystery! Click here to get your mystery tin, hand selected by me – completely with a Tin Fish Date Night gift card all for $15!
Lately I’ve been getting a lot of questions about mussels texture and if there are tins to buy with a more approachable one. I chose the Siesta Co Pickled Mussels tin for TFOTW as this hits all the marks. It’s got a delicious pickled flavor, small sweet mussels and the texture is some of the best/least crumbly ones I’ve found. Use code Ali10 for 10% off.
Everyone always wants to know what our favorite tin fish is. Well, it changes all the time but our current favorite is this unique beauty. Don’t be wary of the word ‘sweet’ in the title, it’s not at all sugary. It’s sweet in a meaty – umami – savory kind of way. The kombu seaweed brings a level to this that pushes it beyond what you normally see in tin mussels. I honestly think I prefer this to most fresh mussels.
A forever favorite combo for us is sourdough, manchego & sardines and Nuri brand is the perfect Portugal tin fish experience to start with. Consistent and delicious, we open this tin again and again.
One of our first favorites and a proven perfected brand: José Gourmet Spiced Mackerel Pâté. This spread is easy to eat and pair. A perfect match for some delicious bread, wines, cheeses and fresh fruit. Just writing this is making my mouth water.
This is a tinned Albacore Tuna unlike any other. The smoking process makes the tuna itself juicy and rich in flavor making it the perfect snacking tin or delicious as an addition to any recipe like flaked on top of your favorite winter salad or just enjoyed with crackers between meals. If you like tinned tuna, this one is a must try.
Wild Planet’s main focus is sustainability. A goal I can get behind. That’s the good news. The great news is not only is their product sustainable, it’s delicious and accessible. Wild Planet Sardines are a must try for any TFDN.
Since I opened my first tin from the new ABC+ line I have been obsessed. There has not been a version I haven’t liked yet. It is an extreme rarity to find a white sauce fish tin and this one shines with perfect little tender mackerel bursts of flavor. A standout on it’s own, or with a sourdough to sop up all the sauce but I can also see this being incredible over a white pasta. This tin is a must try.
Check back on May 31st…
