Healthy fish meals; which fish is healthiest


Thumbs up to fresh, frozen or tinned fish. Thumbs down to fish in breadcrumbs, ready meals and heavy sauces! 

> Fatal mistakes: too much oily fish and creamy sauces.

> How to cheat:
Most types of fish can be grilled, baked in foil or poached in soup to make healthy dishes packed with protein, vitamins and minerals.

Try cooking whole fish with a salt crust: bake a 500g fish with a salt crust for 20 min at 200°C. Your fish will be tender and perfectly flavoured, and you won't need to add a thing. 

By all means eat oily fish, but don't have too much salmon, fatty tuna, sardines, mackerel and herring. Yes, they contain good fat, but they can still contain more than a steak! Opt for cod, sole, monkfish, haddock and white or albacore tuna. White fish is often leaner.

Our favourite recipes: monkfish and asparagus salad, closely followed by salt-grilled sea bream with balsamic caramel. Mmm!
