Fish recipes that you can try at home.

Best Fish Recipes- Fish are usually low in fat and high in omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 improves mental functions and helps in maintaining a healthy heart by lowering blood pressure. Researchers have discovered that eating fish regularly may reduce the risk of diseases ranging from asthma to prostate cancer. White fish like cod are a great source of low fat proteins while oily fish like sardines, salmon and mackerel are dense with omega-3 acids.


Quit tip for buying fresh fish -  Look for the ones with clean bright eyes. Fish with dull eyes may be safe to consume but not fresh. A fish should smell like clean water and not have any bad odour. The flesh should be bright and shiny. There should be no milky liquid on the flesh as that's the first sign of becoming stale.

With a slight twist and a subtle kick, you'll absolutely fall in love with our fancy 11 best fish recipes.
