Stockings Are Meant to Be Stuffed with Tinned Fish

Alex Beggs

Excuse me, is that a candy cane? No, no, no. That will not do. Some of us need stocking stuffers that appeal to flavors we actually love and crave: sardines, smoked oysters, the salty sea air. Just imagine waking up on Christmas morning to a stocking so heavy with aluminum tins that you can barely lift it. Portuguese sardines in olive oil with piquillo peppers? Oh Santa, you shouldn’t have! I mean. You should. This year, give the gift of tinned fish with our handy guide to the best possible options available online right now (but if there are any importers reading this, please make more tinned delicacies available to the U.S. market!). And hey, you don’t even have to wrap them, the packaging’s so good. Hereeee fishy fishy.

Conservas de Cambados
We run into these gourmet Spanish beauties at some of our favorite wine bars and tinned fish-eterias and would looove to run into them in a holiday scenario. In a stocking, gifted by a secret Santa—whatever it takes to get our hands on some swanky squids.
