    How do you prepare canned fish?

    Shop Now
    I am seeing lots of people mention they eat canned/tinned meat when they need a meal. How are you doing so? I have some canned sardines and canned salmon on my shelf. I have eaten the sardines straight but I miss the bread, or admit I have eaten them with potatoes chips and that is pretty good. As for other ideas, I am clueless. And as for the salmon, do you eat the chunks of bones in there?

    For canned salmon, you can tip out most of the liquid (or not - purely personal preference), mash in all the bones and skin with a fork - they virtually disappear when you do that. Nom down on the goodness

    Potato chips are not a great accompaniment if you want to keep it primal. I have just lightly fried the sardines in olive oil with some salt and pepper, and put them over a salad.

    Edited to say: I actually don't put extra salt, just pepper. They are salty enough!

    I use it as a snack mostly, a dash of tabasco sauce or lime juice and nosh straight out of the can! Other than that I dump it onto a salad of green leaves with a spicy home made tomato relish

    Lol, I guess I am a newbie. I am so used to that extra carb.

    OOh, please do share this tomato relish.

    Belinda, do you add anything to the salmon?

    I just add a little cracked black pepper. Once your tastebuds acclimatize to primal and how good food really tastes, you won't need much more.

    I'm eating sardines in olive oil out of the can while reading and responding to this thread. lol. I too used to enjoy chips with my sardines, but after a short time on primal, my taste buds stopped sending me signals to grab the chips. Like Belinda said, once you're acclimated to primal, the food tastes so great that you don't need much more. In the meantime, remember the 80% rule and don't beat yourself up if you aren't being perfect.

    Belinda: I love the PETA comment.

    I eat mine with a good glop of good mustard.
    Started PB late 2008, lost 50 lbs by late 2009. Have been plateaued, but that thing may just be biting the dust: more on that later.

    Just toss into a salad
    Four years Primal with influences from Jaminet & Shanahan and a focus on being anti-inflammatory. Using Primal to treat CVD and prevent stents from blocking free of drugs.

    Eat creatures nose-to-tail (animal, fowl, fish, crustacea, molluscs), a large variety of vegetables (raw, cooked and fermented, including safe starches), dairy (cheese & yoghurt), occasional fruit, cocoa, turmeric & red wine

    These are my two main uses for canned fish (in my case, sardines).
    Are you a college student, trying to navigate college while being Primal? Do you know any other PB college students on a tight budget? Heck, for that matter, are YOU trying to live Primal on a budget? Enroll at Primal University!

    For after all what is man in nature? A nothing in relation to infinity, all in relation to nothing, a central point between nothing and all and infinitely far from understanding either.
