Do your heart and body good—eat fish. Studies show that eating fish at least once a week, especially cold-water species high in omega-3 fatty acids, reduces the risk of heart problems dramatically. Other research suggests that regularly eating omega-3–rich fish may prevent or relieve depression, joint problems, Alzheimer’s disease and, perhaps, several cancers. Even seafood less bountiful in omega-3s, like scallops and crab, are rich in other key nutrients and offer a rich flavor that belies their lean, healthful nature.
Overfishing, global warming and dwindling natural resources may have dampened your appetite for fish, but you can still eat fish and be environmentally conscious by sticking with sustainable fish. This collection of healthy fish recipes, including salmon recipes, tuna recipes, halibut recipes and more, highlights fish that score as Best Choices or Good Alternatives on the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch Scorecard. Enjoy these delicious fish recipes in good conscience and good health.
