These have a super fabulous texture: http://www.amazon.com/Lightly-Smoked-Sa ... B0006HXY14

I'd happily survive on sardines and kimchi for days on end were it not for the stink.

Yah, you eat enough sardines and you start to smell like them a bit.

I could easily live on Sardines and pickled herring...not sure what that would do to me in the long run except make me smelly but I would enjoy it.

I also love canned corned beef hash and I think spam has its merits.

I love sardines and crackers, but it is a fairly recent thing for me. Any favorite brands or styles? My favorite so far has been this Moroccan brand (can't remember the name) canned in spicy oil. I also like canned herring.

EDIT: Do you guys like the tinned smoked oysters? I haven't tried those yet.

Like most Oystery things they are best not chewed too much but I like them.



Sardine salad sandwiches beat tuna salad anyday.


So far my favorite has just been King Oscar with Mustard sauce.

I'm a fan of mustard and sardines. I've always wondered if the bones are hard on your bowels....scraping on down the hershey highway.

Not at all. Some of the Portugese sardines have bigger bones than the Norwegian ones but the cure for small fish bones is bread.

In college I was friends with this guy from Tanzania who would eat chicken bones without thinking about it like we would eat sardine bones. I still cannot fathom that one.

Those soft little bones are one of the best sources of calcium out there. Observation might suggest they're more digestable than, say, corn. But I personally wouldn't suggest that, 'cause it would be gross.

Your stomach acid dissolves those tiny, soft bones. No worries.

I like the three herring, three cheese with yummy bread lunches in Denmark - the curried herring is my favorite. I had canned sardines with rice in Burma .... For both meals a day - edible but....Crystal hot sauce helped - alot.

The only meal in Burma I had was a bowl of rice with some kind of animal fat. I liked the fat and Swain concurred. The main thing was trying not to break through the straw-like floor in the eating area

But...as far as sardines go nothing beats canned with lots-o-tomato sauce. Then at least you're getting your veggies too.

Slightly off topic, but what about frozen smelt? I see them in the store sometimes and have been tempted to get them. I remember my mother making them for us as a treat when we were little, but I don't remember how she cooked them.

smelt were a treat when i was growing up ( i mean, they're actually just large minnows--gack). We fried them up in seasoned flour and egg in a cast iron frying pan.

...and tinned smoked oysters are delish, but the only brands up here that are carried, are from china.
thus, i consider them questionable.
but there's nothing better on a saltine along with an ale.

Toast was/is the supposed cure-all for getting a fish bone stuck in your throat, isn't it. But people eating chicken bones? If we don't let our dogs eat them....
No Apologies.
