Society for the Appreciation of the Lowly Tinned Sardine (SALTS)

I love sardines, and I've got to appreciate anyone who loves sardines enough to form the Society for the Appreciation of the Lowly Tinned Sardine (SALT). Not only that, but they blog about it.

Who are these people? They surely know what they're talking about. In these days of fancy fish costing $30 per pound, there's a lot to be said for people who can find pleasure in a fish that many people will walk right by in the grocery.

Stop by their sardine blog and wander with them through the many different cans of sardines they find, open, sample, describe, and show in pictures, along with a veritable cornucopia of things like wine and cheese to enjoy with sardines.

Canned fish has been too little celebrated lately, here's a photo of my favorite "everyday" salmon. That's the salmon I always keep on hand to pop open when I feel like having some salmon. It's brought to you by Seattle's own Trident Seafoods.

I generally have a half dozen different brands/flavors in my pantry at any one time. Yesterday I tried "Chicken of the Sea Louisiana Hot Sauce Sardines". I was not expecting much but they were pretty good! For cheap interesting varieties 99 Ranch and Mexican grocery shops are reliable.
