    I think with Lent coming, this should be a good time for recipes.

    Jane, I have fish sauce in my refrigerator and I use it, but I just looked at the nutrition label and it doesn’t impart vitamin D to us, it has 0%.
    Yeah, that's why I like cod liver oil...And vitamin D perles.

    sorry, but mackerel patties remind me far too much of the hideous salmon patties my mother used to serve us, made canned salmon with cracker and eggs, so disgusting.

    The last time I remember buying a can of mackerel was when I was trying to lure an elusive feral-ish cat into a trap. Everything else had failed but that mackerel got her in.

    I found my experiment of frozen whole mackerel to be interesting, dont know if I will repeat it. Easier to go to the store and buy fresh salmon which I can afford, and now that I’m retired I have time to cook it correctly and carefully.

    I just yesterday bought a couple lbs of ground turkey and cooked it up into tomato bathed dishes to freeze. But now as I look at the package, it is only 85% lean which is no better than ground beef for low calorie counting. Crap.

    IL, my mom’s salmon patties were the best. It’s the only time I would eat salmon.

    I do love anchovies, though. On pizza, in salads, whatever.

    When I got back from Japan, I vowed to figure out how to have Japanese breakfasts, which feature lots of fish, usually simple poached or grilled small portions. Haven't done it yet.
    I have quite the collection of canned sardines too. It appears I like the idea of eating them more than the actual eating of them. I did make a quasi-puttanesca thing once that was quite good: sardines, olives, chopped tomatoes, capers and olive oil, and then I ate it with a salad.

    I make puttanesca but I use anchovies. I like fish, but sardines, um yea maybe like the idea of eating them more than actually eating them, canned herring is better. I would never microwave any fish, no it doesn't work ...
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.

    Meanwhile I’m contemplating bookmarking this section for when I need to reduce my appetite...��anchovies.

    forgot my lunch. Ate some chocolate hearts from the teacher treats instead. Healthy dinner - high protein pasta and sugar free sauce, followed by a little ice cream. Swam a few extra laps tonight. The swimming felt good.

    Canned Pickled herring in cream sauce, lovely! Pretty high in calories methinks.
