Americans are discovering the joys and convenience of tinned fish, even spurring the 'tin to table' movement, and restaurants of the same theme. Cheese and tinned fish make a wonderful cheese board, and this collection is all you'll need to become a believer. Try anchovies on potato chips, mussels and smooth goat cheese, olives and white tuna belly with feta…the list goes on. We've chosen foods that go great with fish for a pleasantly surprising grouping. Use this kit as a starting point, and add more if you like. These accompaniments will work well with almost all tinned fish.
Our Tinned Fish Cheese Board contains the following:
Jose Andres White Tuna Belly in Olive Oil 4 oz. – Not your everyday canned tuna. This carefully fished Bonito del Norte is packed with care and has an uncommon depth of flavor. Not more fishiness, no, but more richness, satisfying and meaty. A great intro to tinned fish.
Jose Andres Galician Style Mussels 4.2 oz.– The most pristine, plump mussels are cooked in small batches and packed delicately with a simple sauce of olive oil, red pepper, onion and tomato.
Anchovies in Olive Oil– Top grade anchovies from the Bay of Biscay between France and Spain. Smooth, firm, and with a savory salty taste. Perfect on a potato chip with cheese, olives, or on a Caesar salad.
Goat Cheese Pyramid 5.3 oz. – The lemony fresh flavors of soft goat cheese are a perfectly complement to tinned fish. The pyramid shape will add a touch of drama too.
Feta 8oz – a classic sheep’s milk feta. The milky, salty, acidity plays well with seafood.
Caponata Eggplant Bruschetta 5.1 oz. – Slightly salty and sweet, this bruschetta spread speaks to the ripe vegetables of the Mediterranean, like eggplant, tomatoes and olives.
Greek Pitted Olives 5.3 oz. – Classic Greek variety olives like Kalamata and Halkidiki are naturally fermented to bring out their best flavors.
Cornichon 12.4 oz. – Tiny cucumbers are pickled to make the ideal size for eating in one bite paired with charcuterie, cheese, and more. The acidity is particularly good with rich cheese boards.
Jose Andres Potato Chips 6.7 oz. – A high quality potato chip from Spain, made with the utmost care. Put your fish on these, just trust us.
Baguette Crisps– Rogue Creamery's original blue cheese, modeled after French Roquefort. This version is made with cow's milk - an all-around great blue.
Toasted Onion Crisps 4.5 oz. – Thin and crispy yet sturdy, these are the perfect 'vehicle' to enjoy an array of cheeses, charcuterie, tinned fish and more. A light addition of onion adds a savory feel.
