Nutrition requires a variety of food.

Choose sardines and tuna cuts in tomato sauce or olive oil. Buy only those cans from reputable brands which are made in countries with reputable health standards.

3. Storage.

Store in cool place. Use up old stocks before their expiry dates and replace them with fresh stock.

4. Cooking canned fish for food.

Figure 2: Prepared canned fish to be served with fresh lettuce.

Open the can of fish. Transfer the whole content into a proper cooking saucepan (made of thermal glass or of ceramic or of stainless steel). Heat up (by microwave or by conventional heating method) to simmering and let the content simmer for 5 minutes. If necessary add a little amount of water to prevent the food from drying up. After the food has simmered for 5 minutes, it is ready for serving.

So prepared canned fish can be served with fresh, clean lettuce, sliced tomatoes, sliced purple onion as a delicatessen dish. The dish can be consumed with fresh bread, with boiled rice or with prepared instant noodle.
