White fish, flaky fish, oily fish, flat fish, big prawns, little prawns, smoked, we could go on (and on!) when it comes to what bounty that comes out of our oceans. But, whatever fish floats your boat, one thing’s for sure: we’ve got healthy fish recipes for it. In fact, there are so many healthy fish recipes to tempt you with, where do we start?
The fish we’re putting centre stage in the first reel of healthy fish recipes is full of protein and tastes amazing, welcome: Salmon Pie with a Roasted Leek & Carrot Topping. Or you could be pan-frying in little parcels of delicious Hake Pakoras, or simmering a creamy Malaysian Laksa with courgetti. Getting cheezy with a chowder or steaming up this gingery sea bass. We’ll show you how to make healthy fish fingers, spice up supper with a paella that takes 20 mins (not 5 hours) and even better? All your healthy fish recipes have been nutritionally balanced, so you don’t have to think about it.
Why is fish healthy?
It’s low fat, high protein and when it’s sustainably sourced, you can be sure it’s better for you.
- Oily fish like salmon are particularly full of omega-3 fatty acids that keep your heart healthy and vitamin D.
Other oily fish to look out for are in our healthy fish recipes are trout and mackerel.
- White fish like the cod, hake, sea bass you find in your healthy fish recipes have less omega 3’s than salmon and co, but are also good for:
- Vitamin D
- Vitamin B2 (riboflavin)
- Rich in calcium
- Rich in phosphorus
- Great source of iron, zinc, iodine, magnesium, and potassium.
- Shellfish – your coldwater and tiger prawns are
- low in fat
- a source of selenium, zinc, iodine and copper
But mostly we like giving you healthy fish recipes because fish tastes great!
