Did you know that eating just two portions of fish a week - one oily, one white - is one of the government's 8 tips for healthy eating? And that's not all; there are lots of other health benefits to eating fish...
Why is fish so healthy?
White fish is generally low in fat, while oily fish contains Omega-3 - an essential fatty acid that plays a role both in keeping your cholesterol levels normal and helping the heart to work normally.
Some of the easiest ways to cook fish are also the most healthy. Try steaming, baking, grilling or poaching fish, rather than frying.
Salmon and mackerel
Salmon, mackerel, herring, trout, sardines and fresh tuna are all oily fish and contain Omega-3. They have a stronger flavour than white fish - try barbecuing or grilling them.
Coley and lemon sole
Coley, lemon sole, cod and haddock are some of the white fish we sell. Not as high in Omega-3 as oily fish, white fish are still a healthy choice and are generally low in fat. They have a relatively delicate flavour, so try baking them in parcels or steaming.
Prawns and mussels
Shellfish such as prawns and mussels, are also generally low in fat, and can contain zinc and other minerals. Prawns are great cooked on a barbecue, while mussels need steaming for just a few minutes.
