The American Heart Association recommends eating fish at least twice a week to help reduce the risk for heart disease. Fish and seafood are packed with protein and low in saturated fat. Fatty fish like salmon, sardines, herring, tuna and lake trout are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, too.
Keep fish and seafood healthy and delicious with these ideas:
Brush fish lightly with olive oil, then bake, broil or grill until just flaky. Serve with a squeeze of lemon juice.
