    Bahahaha it really depends on if I can handle smelly things or not. However I usually smell like a smelly thing and I handle that very well!

    The boyfriend LOVES fish in a can… 😛 I haven’t had any, but canned salmon is high in Omega-3s! 🙂 Good for you, except for the canned part.

    Ever since I first saw herring and sardines on kath’s blog, I’ve wanted to try them. Plus I think sardines have a lot of iron in them – yay! Your salad looks yummy, will have to try soon.

    Sardines are worse than kipper. That was my lunch today. My poor coworkers :/

    I like smelly cheeses and don’t mind trying things once. But I don’t do fish (besides in sushi). Smelly fish grosses me even more.

    I really can’t do canned fish, but I wish I could because it’s so healthy.

    I love sardines!!! I’m glad there are more people around who love the stinky foods. Power on canned fish lovers!

    I do not like sardines or herring. I am probably the least adventurous eater in the world. 🙁 I read your blog in sheer awe of many of the things you eat. Just to give you an idea of how far apart we are: I don’t even like yogurt. But, for as much as I cringe at some of your meals, I definitely learn from you! Keep doing what you’re doing! 🙂

    I love sardines!!! And smelly cheese! I’m a very adventurous eater and get really excited when I can get other people to try new foods, especially when they’re healthy!

    I’m not super-adventurous, but I’ll try a lot of things. I tried canned sardines, and I wasn’t crazy about them, but my mom and aunt grew up eating them over rice with soy sauce and grated daikon, so I may try it again that way.

    I wouldn’t say bland and tame, but I do take super spicy over smelly

    I am a big fan of smelly foods! The more it smells, the better it tastes I think :).

    I don’t know how much smelliness in foods I can do. My husband LOVES stinky blue cheese, but I just can’t do it.

    I really can’t stomach any canned fish other than tuna (and that took a long time to accomplish!) I’m a total whimp. I have friends that pick up a fish and chomp on it right out of a can. I wish I could magically start loving stuff like this because I know it’s super healthy but…..nope, can’t do it!

    this looks so yum!!

    Everytime I cook fish at home, my son always makes comments, lol! He doesnt like the smell of fish!

    Haha, when I saw the title of this post I immediately thought of an experience I had today. I had just gotten back from a run, and I made lunch before showering. The owner of my apartment then swung by to check out some damage (LONG story), and immediately said it smelled good in my apartment! However, as soon as I heard the words “It smells..” coming out of her mouth, I was sure she was referring to my stinky post-run smell!

    I can enjoy the smelly things…but I can’t stand if my entire home smells like a combination of really smelly things for a really long time. It gives me headaches!

    I don’t mind the smells of any foods besides mushrooms- so gross! But I definitely like my canned fish too. I was always that girl with the smelly tuna sandwich in elementary school!

    I’m an extremely adventurous eater (I like to think that there’s nothing I won’t try once), but I am very scent-sensitive, so I try not to whiff whatever I’m about to scarf if I have the feeling it’s going to be odd!

    HAHAHA, your post made me smile and laugh too! I feel like there is nothing that i don’t want to not like (a lot of negatives, I hope you got that 🙂 but as I was saying, I really have got to try out this super fish! I have been reading so much about it!

    Are you becoming the smelly kid in class? My mom makes tuna at work and freaks out, I should share this with her, lol.

    Pluot – looks like a spotty little plum. Poor thing.

    Haha – I channeled my inner Kath at Trader Joe’s yesterday, too. I picked up the smoked herring, but then swapped it for the smoked trout – still smelly, though. I am looking forward to trying it. I am a very adventurous eater thanks to my parents. I grew up eating all sorts of weird things like tongue and tripe. Nothing is weird when you are 5 and your parents put your plate in front of you – you just eat!

    I am not sure if I have ever had Kipper. It looks good though!

    Please keep your stinky fish – but I’ll take stinky cheese any day!

    I can’t say I’m a fan of sardines…I do like indian food though and that can have a strong aroma!

    haha I am NOT GAME at all when it comes to smelly seafoods! Stinky French cheese on the other hand…..

    I used to be a really picky eater, but as I’ve gotten older I’m becoming more adventurous. I’m at a point now where I’ll try anything once… Maybe even twice. lol I might have to try fish in a can now. Between you and Kath-I think I’m convinced.

    I love smelly food but my husband doesn’t, on his nights out the house gets really stinky!

    The smellier the better, especially when it comes to cheese. I do have to remember to avoid cooking brussle sprouts or broccoli when I have guests coming over. Like last week, I cooked roasted brussle sprouts with dinner and an hour later, we had a house showing. I am sure the house smelled like, well you know! 😉

    Not a fan of sardines or anchovies. However, I do like kimchi with Korean food!

    Hmmm I don’t know about that fish in a can. But then again I did eat chicken out of a can today, so maybe.

    Most European food I ate as a kid was smelly and delicious. My American friends didn’t understand when I came back to the US and still ate it.

    Stinky cheese is the best!

    I’m a pretty adventurous eater. I’m a huge dork and pretend I’m on the Amazing Race while traveling – and try any and all of the local eats (from fried crickets and silkworms in the nightmarkets of Beijing to blood tofu and headcheese).

    That said – can’t do canned herring or sardines. The smell 😡

    I’m kind of medium adventurous.

    I went to high school with a guy named Kipper.

    this post hits so close to home! I have two roommates who were not amused by my sardine salad with crackers feast that I prepared the other night for dinner. I thought it was amazing so did our dog Roger 🙂 Oh well, their loss.
