/dg/ - deenz general

Nojokur
Nojokur

So you guys memed me into eating some deenz today and it wasn't that bad, just a little bland. I ended up putting them on saltines and dabbling some hot sauce on to make them pop a little.

Recommend me some more flavorful alternatives that I can actually get my hands on. I live in a shithole with a Publix, Walmart and a Harveys so any off the wall brand stuff I'm not going to have access to.

i think part of the appeal of sardines is that they're a great vessel for hot sauces if you get the plain ones.

my favorite is king oscar with jalapenos. if i have just plain sardines i might add a little olive muffaletta mix, pickled jalapenos, or eat them on a flavorful bread

Yes, the bones are a little "chalky" in texture but perfectly edible in fish this small. Free calcium my dude

Total novice here. What are some entry-level deenz?
Also, what's the difference between sardines and anchovies?

Also, what's the difference between sardines and anchovies?
They're two different species of fish.
Anchovies should not be eaten straight out of the can. They're packed in way too much salt. They're really more use for garnishing or making sauces. I guess the fish are so small they dissolve and just add a really strong umami component to any sauce.

idontknow
idontknow

as far as food goes, anchovies are tiny and usually salted all to hell, they're used for their strong flavor.

sardines are typically larger fish and much milder, imagine canned tuna except the flavor is a little different and you have a complete fish body (no head, sometimes no tail) instead of a packed tin of meat.

entry level, look for skinless and boneless. season sardines are really consistent from what i've seen, very mild. king oscar is also very good. plan to eat them with some saltines (helps cut the oiliness) and maybe some hot sauce if you have a favorite.

Just drain the oil before you dig in.
It's definitely tastier. Sometimes I'll get a baguette, slice some of it up to put deenz on, and use the rest to dip in the leftover olive oil.

I like eating sardines in oil on crispy, well browned rye toast with a little thinly sliced red onion and black pepper. It's the perfect combo of crunchy carb, oily fish, and acidic/sharp veggie. You could add thinly sliced tomatoes as well

OP if you thought deenz were a bit bland you'll enjoy kippers a lot more...i have personally been converted away from sardines and fully embrace herring, kippers, any smoked fatty fish basically. i agree, sardines get a little boring after a while. they just lack that OOOMF that smoked herring bring to the table.

PurpleCharger
PurpleCharger

this user gets it
never ever get any canned fish in water, in rapeseed oil, or in soybean, it just doesn't taste good.

ONLY go for the olive oil or sunflower oil. if you don't believe me go test it yourself. i seriously fucking hate rapeseed and soybean oil, 100%. and it's not because of the soyboy memes. these oils degrade the fish and make them mushy.

New_Cliche
New_Cliche

add some harissa or any spicy hot sauce if you enjoy hot taste. seriously. alternatively, for heat without red peppers, hit your fish with some horseradish. stronk mustard also works. you're welcome

Supergrass

Do sardines have the bones removed? Do you just crunch through them?

Harmless_Venom
Harmless_Venom

They're soft enough that you just eat them along with everything else. Unless you're really looking for them you won't even notice they're there.

viagrandad
viagrandad

yes, you can just eat them they are super soft. i'm not joking. they are fully cooked and tiny fish. if you are afraid of bones and don't believe me, go buy the boneless type you faggot.

Evilember
Evilember

The texture is sort of like semi-hard candy, I guess. There might be a little bit of "crunchiness" when you eat a bigger bone like a spine or something. It's sort of crunchy like eating a potato chip and it kind of melts away when you get it in your mouth.

It's not like they stick you in your mouth or anything like that, if you can eat tuna out of a can than you can eat deenz no problem.

High in sodium. Other than that it's just the mercury poisoning you have to worry about.

farquit
farquit

Sardines are very low in mercury compared to larger fish like tuna (0.013ppm vs 0.126ppm). Since the FDA recommends not eat more than 12 oz of tuna a week, or about 3 cans, and sardines have about 1/10 of the mercury, it seems most people should be able to safely eat up to 30 cans a week

fda.gov/food/foodborneillnesscontaminants/metals/ucm115644.htm

The salt is a problem for me but I eat Season brand with no salt added because they're the only brand in my area that offers low sodium

I got into the deenz life 4 months ago... This is my first day on Veeky Forums. Soon, others will know the way of the deenz. Sometimes when I go to the dollar store someone hs already bought everything in the shelf... don't be fooled y'all.

Side note: as a source of protein, eggs is cheaper.

P.S. I got into the smoked herring life also, the problem is that they taste too good, i am usually not satisfied until i've eaten 3 cans (3 dollars worth)

Agreed. The first deenz I tried were packed in chili sauce, and I liked them just fine. I tried a bunch more in oil, water, mustard, and Mediterranean, and realized that the chili sauce was best for me anyway. I'd just add hot sauce to the others, so why complicate things?

Any Dutchies here by any chance? Where can i get a lot of canned fish cheap? I don't mind buying in bulk. Best alternative i have right now is the Makro, but i don't have the pass so i join a friend of mine instead.

I love anchovies straight up, just put them on a thick cracker such as knackerbrod (crispbread).

Yes, they are very nutritious and filling but refrain from eating the ones in oil and sauce, only go with the ones in water. It's less tasty, but if you want to lose weight, it's the best way to go.

I could be wrong, as i never had it, but i THINK that soybean is ok too, but i can't say for certain.

If you're on a keto diet, you should take the fatty ones. I came to love canned fish when i was on a keto diet, as it is low in carbs but high in fat and it has many nutrients that are necessary for keeping a healthy keto diet. (unless you like being tired all the time or, in the worst case, get the keto flu) Still, i had to avoid the ones in tomato sauce due to the high amount of sugar, but a can of tomato puree can be added for taste.

You can do so, but i always eat them straight up.

Deenz in salad is 10/10. Do it my nigga. I sometimes wrap it up in leaf lettuce and fill it with olives and sundried tomatoes. Great food for lunch or a hefty snack.

It's canned dude, no worries.

Absolutely delicious.

I would say yes, but I wouldn't make deenz my only source of protein. I would treat it as a pseudo supplement where I can get good omega 3's and a decent amount of protein.
Then again it would all depend on what you're trying to do. Fish in general is great for losing weight while hitting protein goals.

The smoked oysters, clams and mussels are all very very good. If you get tired of eating them straight or on crackers, drain them and put them on a pizza - so, so good.!

That was my same question I mentally asked myself when my korean friends offered me the anchovies, but I tried them and honestly, they were the best anchovies I ever ate and I told them so. They were surprised but from what I tasted they fit an American's tastebuds more than any other anchovy. The normal recipes call for sugar but I guess they substituted it for maple syrup, with great results.
