    I have to admit I was a little bit intimidated when I first opened this tin. I’ve tried an array of tinned fish and this seemed like the most adventurous tin I’d encountered. Once I got the tin open I was a bit less intimidated. Though it doesn’t paint a pretty picture, I’d say my first thought was that it looked like a cross between a can of tuna fish and a can of cat food.

    The aroma was definitely a touch fishy, I’m not sure if it makes sense but I’d describe it as a very clean fishy aroma – not lingering, not offensive, but definitely there… and maybe a bit of cat food undertone.

    When trying a new tin I always like to sample it straight from the tin, or at most, on a basic cracker or piece of bread/toast. Keeping with tradition, and quickly before I could overthink it, I fished a piece out and popped it in my mouth… rich, creamy, oily, clean, soft… good.

    This cod liver wants an accompaniment – something to add a bit more variety to the texture and something to cut the richness. A crispy cracker and pickled onions were a winning combination for me, as they often are. I think each bite got better than the last – maybe this is something that the body wants but that message doesn’t get to the brain until it starts getting some.

    This isn’t a tin that I’d want to crack open on a daily basis, but it feels right to keep a tin or two on hand.
