Fish has some amazing health benefits and for anyone trying to lose weight you can’t go wrong if you include several fish meals a week into your diet.

Loaded with Omega 3’s and low in fat, fish is something we should have more often. Fish is quite versatile – you can bake, grill or even barbeque; served with salad or veg it makes a quick easy meal.

Here are 3 easy steps for perfect fish:

  1. Select fish fillets with firm flesh. Also check that it has a fresh sea scent and ask if fillets are boneless.
  2. Buy on the day you plan to cook it. Seafood should be consumed within two days of purchase. Avoid cross contamination by always storing raw seafood separate to any other meat or vegetables.
  3. Don’t overcook as it spoils the flavour. There is nothing worse than a dry piece of fish so only cook for 2 or 3 minutes each side then test. Fish should flake easily with a fork when cooked properly.
