    In my household I am the sole tinned fish eater, for which I am occasionally shunned for introducing some pungent odors into the house (it was just that one time that sautéing some sardines turned into an olfactory assault that I’ll never live down). I mention this for context, as when a few nights ago my wife suggested that she’d love a nice Branzino for dinner but didn’t feel like going out I envisioned my opportunity for redemption!
    I have some Branzino! In a tin! I exclaimed. This was met with worry, doubt. Eating anything but tuna from a tin was a scary prospect for her. I cracked the tin open to find some nice looking filets in golden olive oil. I foisted them out and set them on a plate alongside some roasted small potatoes, a bit of greens, and a spritz of lemon. It could have come from a restaurant. For my wife, a tinned fish doubter, it was a win.
    These were delicious – well cooked, well seasoned (lightly), well packed, and tasty.

    This is not the least expensive tin, I wouldn’t call it pricey either, but it is value for the money. The fish is lovely, a nice fat filet. The flavor is subtle, but quality is high. Would make a great meal with just about any starch and veggie combo you can think of.

    This was a tasty tin, good quality and simple. It’s fish and olive oil. Delicious! The fish is mild, no strong smell or fishiness, and the texture is rich. I ate it simply over toast. It was good but a bit plain as the fish flavor is so mild… Which then makes it feel a bit expensive because it’s so basic. I’m not sure what else to say about something so simple. It was enjoyable and I’ll eventually probably buy it again, but I most likely won’t be rushing to repurchase just because it wasn’t particularly memorable… I think it was just missing something for me to be a big wow and at this price, I really want more of a stand out. However, I’d definitely eat it again if I had another tin in front of me! It’s just not a “hurry up and buy more immediately” tin for me.

    Lived up to my expectations, an extremely *extremely* pleasant flake on this one. Mild indeed – if you’re not careful, you’ll overwhelm the flavor. While I think I could have easily eaten this on its own, I really enjoyed this tin over some lemony bean puree with only salt and pepper. Compares favorably on texture/moisture to the Matiz cod when you want a brilliantly-textured and moist flaky fish. Definitely agree with reviewer Jeff above that this is a great option for a tinned fish doubter, it’s visually beautiful and easy to eat. A special occasion tin at this price but I’ll happily get this again.

    Really, really delicious! Very mild, SOFT, and wonderfully delicate. I ate it literally out of the tin slightly warmed up. Wonderful oil that it is packed in, deliciously salt-y, and just all around great. I even got the wife to eat some (not a traditional fan of tinned fish)!

    I love branzino at restaurants, so I wanted to give this a try: compare and contrast. All I did was warm the tin briefly in a hot water bath, and I plated it with crispy roasted potatoes and asparagus sautéed in garlic and some of the tin’s oil. Fantastic. Mild, with a lovely flake. So great to have wonderful fish always at the ready in the larder for a speedy, simple meal. Going on my Wishlist.
