canned catch of the day!

You may think them just a great store cupboard emergency item with the benefit of a good shelf life but tinned fish and seafood is so much more and really in vogue right now, getting lots of love from food writers and chefs.

"Tinned" doesn't sound very gourmet but call them "conservas" como hacen los Españoles  [who are experts in preserving seafood] and all of a sudden they sound very delicious!

Tinned seafood has moved beyond simple salmon and can make the basis for a delicious meal [try tinned mackerel with lemon, chili & pasta] or an ingredient that can really pump up the flavour of dishes - anchovies are an amazing seasoning for roast leg of lamb!

They’re  also perfect to pack for a picnic, or just to eat right out of the tin as a healthful snack, and great for entertaining - think of them as aquatic charcuterie!

We have a great selection instore and online  Anchovies, Sardines, Tuna, even cockles!

The most important element to great tasting tinned fish however is ensuring you have the very best quality, and we've done the hard work of sourcing the best for you.

The Spanish and Portuguese are the masters of tinned and we stock  Minerva, Santa Catarina, Azouro and Ortiz however our own Shines Seafood in Donegal have beautiful Wild Irish Tuna as well as sardines in sauces and oil and mackerel too.

Many of us have occasions when we decide to cut down, or take a break from alcohol. This can be for health reasons, having early deadlines to meet, or that we are the designated driver. Much of our socialising has traditionally been constructed around social drinking, and while water and soft drinks are an alternative, some of us just like the taste of alcohol when out.
The practical definition of alcohol-free used by most countries is under 0.5% alcohol by volume (ABV). The good news is how much easier it is to go alcohol-free, compared even a few years ago. The move to alcohol-free, or low in alcohol drinks for some of our choices, is being firmly embraced and in fact, it is largely consumer driven. As a result, the quality and selection available now has made the choice easier and more appealing.
