A Can Of Fish

In Dieppe we visited a little boutique that sold nothing but canned fish. Ok, it was mostly canned fish. The colors of the products and the way they were grouped in the window displays and on the shelves made them very attractive, even appetizing. We do eat canned fish products (tuna, mackerel, sardines, etc.) but we get them from the supermarket. These are pricey upscale cans:

Herring with green asparagus and mimolette (cheese) and mackerel with artichoke hearts and andouille sausauge.

Mostly tuna, but also sardines with peppers and langoustines with mushrooms.

Mostly mackerel, plain or flavored with mustard or tomato, and sardines with peppers or with muscadet wine.

This is the last stop in Dieppe! Next up, a few photos from Paris.


  1. the best brand of canned sardines is La Quiberonnaise, from Quiberon in Morbihan, Brittany

    They have been the best choices since they were created. they're a bit pricey, not found in supermarkets (but Fauchon for example), but I think you should try. Quiberon was the first sardine seaport of France, hence it got the best sardine industry!

  2. Thanks, atlantel, I will be sure to check that site out. We have been to the Presqu'ile de Quiberon; it's a beautiful place.


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
