Fish is an excellent source of nutrients that our body needs to stay healthy. Apart from being packed with protein, it is also rich in vitamins and minerals. In addition, it is a great source of omega-3 fatty acids, which are beneficial for our health. Studies have shown that consuming fish two to three times a week can reduce the risk of various diseases. Not to mention fish is a ZeroPoint food on the WeightWatchers® program meaning you don't need to measure or track it.

If you want to incorporate more fish into your diet, here are some tips for cooking with fish:

  • Grilled fish: Grilling is a simple and healthy way to cook fish. You can marinate the fish in your favourite spices and herbs, and then grill it for 3-5 minutes on each side. This method works well for fish that are firm and can hold their shape, such as salmon, tuna, and swordfish.
  • Baked fish: Baking is another easy way to cook fish. Simply place the fish fillet on a baking sheet, add some seasoning and herbs, and bake it in the oven for 10-15 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fish. This method works well for white fish, such as snapper and flathead.
  • Pan-fried fish: Pan-frying is a quick and easy way to cook fish. Coat the fish fillet in a mixture of flour and seasoning, and then fry it in a non-stick pan for 2-3 minutes on each side. This method works well for delicate fish, such as John Dory and trout.
  • Canned fish in springwater: Canned fish, such as tuna and salmon, are a convenient and affordable way to add protein to your meals. You can use them in salads, sandwiches, pasta dishes, and more.
