Inexpensive Seafood
« on: July 31, 2016, 12:56:57 PM »
If you like fish, you already know how expensive it can be. I have found a good cheap source of fish is canned mackerel. I use it to make spicy fish soup or jambalaya. At the local supermarket a can of chub mackerel (yes, they are really named 'chub') is about $2 for 15 oz. can. Each can contains a few small oily fish, containing 'good' fats such as omega-3 fatty acids, and the small size means less mercury than larger fish.

Sounds delicious! I have never tried canned mackerel, but do enjoy sardines and kippers, as well as non-canned mackerel.

Not quite as cheap and canned mackeral, which I think i probably the cheapest you can get seafood (short of fishing), but Costco often sells a big (5lb?) bag of fresh mussels for $2.99/lb. We use it to make a traditional mussels marinara, of course with good cabernet infused. Poured over a bed of fettucine with a salad, it feeds our whole family and we get to pig out on seafood.

I loved mackeral when I used to eat fish.

Can't resist sharing Dr Steve Brule's method of eating cheap seafood. (forgive me)

We used to buy frozen tilapia fillets all the time. However, we now have a local source that grows them so we can get them fresh anytime we like.

+1 for eating the small fishes = more environmentally sustainable.

Kippers with onions and toast. Yum!

Been awhile. I should go pick up a few cans.
