What's the secret?
I've tried it too Hugh being a fish fan...but no.
The commercial stuff is freeze-dried and rehydrates well (almost recognisable as fish); other than that the plastic/foil pouches of tuna (and salmon that you can pick up in the US) are great but are a little heavier to tote about.
roll on next weekend
i have dehydrated mnice beef jalfrezi, masala and spag bol for trip to scotland
cant help with fish although i dehydrated a tin of tuna once and used it with pasta and a bolognese sauce aqnd was ok.
i dont know ed think i am excited.
cheers bluff,good point
i am with benco on the jerky thing. imho( although i would like someone to prove me wrong) the only way to enjoy meat rehydrated in a meal is if its minced size.unless its jerky of course.my beef jerky is the best.
forget it hugh. make yourself a beef jelfrezi and add an extra birdseye chilli on the hill.
I really like fish as well. I've tried a couple of different brands of oriental dried shrimp and both were really salty (I think it is used as a seasoning like fish sauce).
I binned mine, but you might get away with it if you soaked them in water for 10 mins first and then threw away the water before adding them to your meal.

Sig's are a waste of bandwidth...
People have been dehydrating (or drying) fish for thousands of years.
I know of one place where they fish for cod, landing it while it's still wriggling, but don't consider it fit for human consumption until it's been gutted, filletted, salted, nailed on wooden frames to dry, been stored for months on end, then boiled, mashed and reduced to a grey, salty, foul-smelling, awful-tasting sludge. In effect... as far removed from a nice piece of tasty fresh white cod as it's possible to get!
TFS - I think I must have been to that restaurant too!
I had minced pork fat, tripe sausage, a turkey's gizzard full of gravel, and some of those 'snotty offerings' you mention, which actually translated as 'swamp food', because all the creatures were dredged out of a nearby swamp!
Baccala is an Italian (imported) salt cod. It requires soaking all day in a couple of changes of water but is very nice (even though it doesn't look it to start with). If you don't mind carrying the weight of the re-hydrating water with you all day, it would be ideal.
I'd imagine it would be good for longer trips where you can just re-hydrate what you want that day. Never tried doing that though.
