Q:  I’m wondering if you have any tips on how to store sardines and other fish that come in pull-top cans (smoked trout, kippers, mackerel…) after opening. It seems as if there should be a way to keep the opened can in the fridge for a day or two, but the top doesn’t close without making things very messy! Any ideas?

Editor: Mary, we often wonder about this too! We sometimes just put open cans in a small covered Tupperware box in the refrigerator.

Readers, what do you do with open tins of sardines or other fish?
