I didn't quite know where to put it, but decided (as always! ) in favour of frugality. So here's my question:
I open a tin of sardines, anchovies, tuna or the like, and I only use half. Is it ok to keep the rest in the open tin, and put the tin in a closed plastic container in the fridge till the next day? Or will the tin affect the fish? I know it used to, but these days I hope they make the tins different.
Somehow I would not do that with a tin of tomatoes, as they are acid, but fish isn't.
Thanks! Annemieke.

Keeping it for just one day shouldn't do any harm, but why not turn the fish out into a bowl or something and cover that with a saucer to store in the fridge? That way there is no risk of contamination.

I would always take it out of the tin, especially if the fish is in brine/salt. As far as im aware they haven't changed the tins and the advice remains the same. Better safe than sorry I would say and preventing any health problems (no matter how minute the chance might be) is surely worth more than saving washing the extra dish/Tupperware.

Out of the tin for sure, I would do this if I was serving the fish to a cat. I don't like fish so cats are the only tinned fish eaters in my life.

Ok ok! I feel suitably chastised. I like your cat by the way madcat, or is it you?

It's a swimming cat from the Internet , obviously unimpressed by water.

I can be just as grumpy but not too often.
