I have it. It is. I have yet to make any recipes out of it, but it's a nice book to have on the shelf.

my only experience with it has been with 'chovies and olives as the basis of the 'salty, meaty components' (essentially), adding sardines seems heretical to me but not outside the realm of possibility.
I'd steer towards using a small amount of pan-fried pancetta, first and then adding extra capers and cheese myself, just because I think the 'dines are going to make it mooshy and weird. My opinion of it was always that it should be a salty, fish flavored sauce without being gunked up by what 'dines can do, but of course that's your preference and what you've got available and want.

It should be one of those cripplingly intense sauces that just coat the thick pasta and impart the flavor, without fish gloop getting in the way, just the sauce flavoring the pasta with the above, but again that's me. (this is not a condemnation of the 'dine. I love the 'dine)

Namaste.

I regularly add a can of decent tuna in olive oil to puttanesca if I've got it in the pantry and I don't see why the right can of dines wouldn't be even better. The wrong can, though...

I'd also recommend using Thai fish sauce as a bit of seasoning in it to really kick that poo poo up, but, again, just me.

if you watch the recipe I posted above and thought, "I could toss in a half tin of baby clams towards the end", I think...no one would blame you. Serve that with some rustic garlic bread and a good ceaser salad and some steamed broccolini? ... you gonna argue w/dat? however this isn't GWS. I'm just saying maybe no 'dines INSTEAD of chovies in your puttanesca is all

I use the boneless and skinless sardines for this. Basically when they're on a big sale. Its like oily tuna!

This is quite literally the 'garum' that all the ancient roman recipes talk about

well, arguably.

+/- sugar and a little fermentation but it's as close as we know of, and it's essentially as common as 'pass me the salt' for almost 1000 years, so, enjoy.

Is Red Boat worth it? Mite try it next time I need fishy sauce. I guess I don't really use fish sauce is vast enough quantity for it to be expensive.

Red Boat is good, but IMO any bog-standard fish sauce will be fine if you're doing long cooking instead of adding it to the end.

Speaking of garum, I'm reminded of this video:

listen up kids cause there's a new canned fish in town





was kinda spendy, but worth the experience. super buttery, more so than can be accounted for by its swimming in olive oil. not real fishy, not salty not smokey. mostly just buttery. meat was about midway between like, soul and tuna, mostly real light but with, like, a finish of density. that the can was exactly half a fish was also kinda cool. it's way down on the list of considerations for tinned fish, but the bream does have some aesthetic swagger to it

Corner store is out of sardines. Seem to have replaced them with these weird things



‘Dine sized tins of tuna with stuff like beans, onions, red peppers, “leafy greens”

They're good but too pricey. I like them as a hiking or camping snack though. The nicoise one is best imo.

Speaking of Nuri, apparently summer asian grocery stores are able to sell them for less than other store's wholesale costs.

quote:

What I suspect is that they first found distribution in the USA through the Asian grocery channels, became a cult favorite, would like to be mainstream, attempted to set up distributors who could do that, saw little success, rebranded a couple of times/ways, changed angles without undoing anything that had been done, and is now a proper tangle of channels and policies that mostly don’t conflict but result in wildly inconsistent pricing structures.


That's from Rainbow Tomatoes. Y'all should definitely check out their sardine store: https://rainbowtomatoesgarden.com/index.php/product-category/conservas/

205 types of canned seafood from $4-$66.
