Containing lots of what’s good for you and little that’s not, fish for dinner once or twice a week just makes sense.
- Fish has a lot going for it. It's healthful, flavorful, versatile and available almost everywhere. Nutrition-wise, fish is loaded with high-quality protein and is low in fat, saturated fat, cholesterol and calories.
- Fish is so quick and easy to prepare. Cook by broiling, baking, steaming, stir-frying, poaching, grilling, microwaving, sautéing. Our recipes will please the most finicky eater.
- Cook fish fast and hot. The general rule is to allow 10 minutes for each inch of its thickness. Fish should be cooked to an internal temperature of 145°F. It’s done when you poke it with a fork and it flakes easily.
- When lean and healthy is your goal, depend on orange roughy, red snapper and cod as they’re types of lean fish with less than 2.5 percent fat. They all have a mild flavor, too.
- Look for specials on canned tuna or salmon. Look for plenty of fast and easy recipes using those two cupboard staples.
- Go global!
