Reel in the benefits with our summer fish dishes

Share this:

With summer finally on the way, it's time to start cooking fresh, light dishes. Fish and seafood are the perfect main ingredients for a summery supper and a great way to top on on Omega-3. These sea-dwelling delights vary enormously in flavour, texture and their suitability for different cuisines.

Versatility aside, the health benefits are plentiful. Fish are typically loaded full of Omega-3 fatty acids – but don't let the word "fatty" deter you. These are the good, essential fats which give fish its reputation as "brain food". Omega-3's are proven as powerful anti-inflammatories which help the body cure all sorts of ailments.

Particularly high in the Omega-3 stakes are mackerel, trout, salmon, sardines and anchovies. And whilst white fish might not contain as much, it's low in fat and high in protein – vital features of a healthy diet.

The perks don't stop there. Fish is also packed with vitamins and nutrients that can lower blood pressure and help reduce the risk of a heart attack or stroke. Nutritionists recommend that we eat at least two portions of fish per week. Try hitting your target with these summer fish dishes:

  1. Trout and Ginger Salad adds some zing to a healthy salad.
  2. For an Asian twist on fish try Mackerel with Lime and Coconut Marinade with Sweet Potato Wedges.
  3. Seafood Brochettes with White Wine Hollandaise pose a little culinary challenge for an amateur cook but the outcome is exquisite.
  4. Combining two super-healthy ingredients, Salmon and Asparagus Stroganoff is creamy but light.
