Three Delicious Fish You Should Try For Dinner (And How To Prepare Them)


1. Salmon: This kind is often considered the superstar of the ocean in terms of nutrition and overall benefits to our health.  According to Dr. Sears, salmon features the highest amount of omega 3 fatty acids per gram. Omega 3 is by far the most valuable nutrient found in the fish group and salmon packs an impressive amount. It promotes heart health and has even been proven to maintain eye health.

Easy way to prepare salmon: Lightly season with an italian herb medley. Add salt, pepper, and drizzle with a small amount of olive oil. Place in oven at 400 degrees for 18 minutes (or until cooked thoroughly). Plate it with a serving of brown rice and vegetables for a heart healthy meal!
2. Cod: Though this type of fish does not boast an extreme amount of Omega 3 fats (.5 grams/6 oz serving), it still is a great source of healthy protein, and is also quite low in mercury. One of the best things about cod is how versatile it is – and can be prepared in a variety of different ways.

Here is our suggestion: In a small bowl, mix together half a teaspoon of sesame oil, half a teaspoon of crushed garlic, a few drops of rice vinegar, and 4 teaspoons of soy sauce. Mix well, then use to marinate cod filet for 1 hour. Lastly, sautee for 4-5 minutes on each side. Serve and enjoy!
3. Tilapia: Surprisingly, this group features high protein, vitamin B12, as well as selenium (according to Nutrition Data). It is also on the lower side of sodium so you can enjoy without having to stay conscious about that.

We like this recipe: In a pan, sautee 1 tsp of butter with chopped garlic until the garlic is almost golden in color. Toss in tilapia fillet, lightly dash with salt and pepper and sprinkle with some parsley flakes. Cook for 3 minutes on each side or until thoroughly cooked. Serve and enjoy your garlic herb tilapia!
