Tin Fish: The Trendy Superfood

If you missed the "tin fish" trend, it's probably not your fault. It's not like there was a red carpet rollout for sardines or anything. But there has been a lot of attention paid to these nutritious little fish. And as we know, eating all kinds of fish - fresh, frozen, or canned - is good for you.

If you're not familiar with the term, tin fish refers to fish that has been canned, usually in tin-plated steel cans. Common types include tuna, sardines, and mackerel. Originating as a way to preserve seafood, the canning process involves cooking the fish and sealing it in an airtight container, often with oil, brine, or tomato sauce.

Canned fish is valued for its long shelf life, convenience, and nutritional content, including protein and omega-3 fatty acids. It's a staple in various cuisines and can be used in a wide range of recipes.
