TINNED FISH MANIA: These canned goods aren’t just for survivalists—they’re luxury imports, souvenirs, and collectibles. We’ve reached an age, as Eater has pointed out, where Americans are willing to spend $45 on a tiny tin of conservas (as they’re often called in Spain and Portugal) to snack on while they sip their wine. Bon Appétit is suggesting them as all-purpose stocking stuffers. Tinned, canned, jarred, preserved: these sea creatures are a pantry must-have. And Tin to Table shows you how to use them all! 

ONE-OF-A-KIND CANNED FISH COOKBOOK: Whether you are exploring a pescatarian diet or simply broadening your cooking horizons, this unique guide covers a wide variety of tinned seafood rather than focusing solely on a single ingredient such as sardines or salmon. Full-color photographs showcase mouthwatering dishes while playful illustrations round out the fun foodie vibe throughout.

SUSTAINABLE COOKING IN A CAN: In an age of conscious consumerism, canned seafood can offer transparency about sourcing, fishing methods, sustainability, and mercury levels that can be difficult or impossible to trace among the fresh seafood at the supermarket. As more and more home cooks cut down on their meat consumption out of concern for the environment, canned fish offers a happy alternative, packed full of protein and omega–3s. Its convenience, nutritional value, and long shelf life don’t hurt either!

Perfect for:
  • Home cooks, college students, picnickers, and seafood lovers 
  • A great host gift or self-purchase for those who enjoy entertaining 
  • An educational and practical resource for sustainable cooking enthusiasts 
  • Pairing with a specialty tin of fish to create a memorable birthday, holiday, or special occasion gift for foodies and cookbook collectors
