I love Italian packed tuna in olive oil. But it is so pricey.

Hey jelibeann - I love fake krab and it's as versatile as tuna. It's just fish made fun!Hubby eats it right out the package and it's great with buttered garlic pasta for a quick dinner.

definitely tuna, but otherwise i'm pretty against canned foods...however, i recently make a crab bisque that i had trouble finding imitation crab for (i know, i know...it's gross, but i love it anyway) and wound up "settling" for canned crab, which turned out to be great

I love canned tuna. I also love salmon for salmon patties but I buy the flavor pack, never the can because the can has those little round bones you have to pick out, eww!

I'll go for tuna in water, sardines and salmon but that's about it.

i definitely do the tuna in water... i was mortified when dr. oz was pushing for canned smoked oysters be a part of a healthy snack. they were swimming in cottonseed oil (look it up to get the details which aren't pretty... manufactured oil? i don't think so)... and the oysters were mushy.i purchased two cans and immediately threw the both away.

I find that the fishiness is way intensified, probably thanks to the salt.

Yes! We go to the OR coast twice a year and stock up on lots of canned fish. One of my fave canneries is in Gold Beach. And of course good ol' tuna is always in the pantry. Not a fan of canned crab cause I'm a SF bay area girl, but I have used it when camping for crab and cheese quesadillas and it's pretty good in the forest.

I buy canned tuna all the time. It's cheap and nutritious and it helps me get all my protein and omega 3's.

Tuna, salmon, sardines, and crab meat are my go-to canned fish items. Tasty!

Yes! I'll buy and consume the usual suspects (tuna, anchovies, sardines). Also been known to enjoy some of the lesser-known ones. I like canned smoked oysters or clams. They're great for making appetizers and dips.

Spanish tuna is fantastic....the canned crab at Costco is pretty good.

Yes however it does depend on the type of fish. Tuna, sardines, kippers, anchovy. Saw a No Reservations w/ A. Bourdin where he dined on Spanish canned seafood that he said was the best seafood he'd ever had and was expensive as hell. Like $500 or more a can. I'd like to try some of those.

I buy tuna and sardines. I loooove eating sardines in olive oil with a drizzle of red wine vinegar for an appetizer at home :)

Tuna in water is as far as I am willing to go with the whole fish-in-the-can-business!

I always keep salted anchovies and tuna packed in oil on hand. I also use canned clams for clam chowder and canned crab for seafood gumbo.
