The American Heart Association recommends we eat fish at least twice each week. That's because fish, especially oily ocean fish like salmon and tuna, contains omega-3 fatty acids that are good for your heart and blood vessels.
Some people are a little daunted by the idea of cooking fish, but it really isn't all that tricky. Start by choosing fish that is fresh smelling with resilient flesh and if you choose whole fish, they should have bright red gills and clean-looking skin. Be sure to cook and eat the fish within a few days, or choose frozen fish.
Baked, broiled or poached fish is better for you than batter-fried fish. And fish cooks quickly so fish meals are ready in a snap - just add a green vegetable and a salad for a delicious and super-healthy dinner.
