Somethings Fishy...And You're Going to Love It!

Yum
Your quest for delicious fish preparations is about to be fulfilled!


My husband was recently diagnosed with heart problems. Nothing life threatening, but he is now on medication and looking to change up his diet. The great thing is we love fish and shellfish so that's not a problem. I decided to put together this post and include some of my fellow bloggers who have some tried and true recipes for cooking fish. Come inside and see what we have.
There are quite a few recipes here at Cooking On A Budget for fish and shellfish. Some of them will make it into this post along with some other really delicious recipes from (as I said) fellow bloggers. Let's first get just a bit educated about the importance of fish in our diets.

There are many fish that come highly recommended for their Omega 3 fatty acids. Omega 3 fatty acids are the good fat found in food. Salmon and Tuna top the list along with Mackerel, Trout, Herring and Sardines. Although shellfish is high in cholesterol you see the comparison made in this quote from the website Live Strong:
"Although shellfish may seem to have a high cholesterol content, this amount is still low to moderate when you compare it with meat. For example, a 3.5-ounce sirloin steak has 80 milligrams of cholesterol, 3.5 ounces of lamb contains 106 and one egg has 212 milligrams. If you consider the amount of seafood you eat compared to the amount of meat you eat, even shellfish is lower in cholesterol and healthier than certain meats. This reason, in addition to its low saturated-fat content, is why the American Heart Association recommends substituting fish for meat twice per week."
Shrimp, mussels and scallops also top the list of our favorites and each has it's own merits with regard to nutrition. Another popular fish is Tilapia. While it has lower Omega 3 Fatty acids than the fish mentioned above, it is a fish that is low in fat and high in protein. Cod is a fish we love. Especially Atlantic Cod. Cod is another fish that is low in calories and high in protein. While it only contains 8% of Omega 3 fatty acids in a 4 ounce portion, it is still good for you. Sea Bass is another fish that is low in fat, low calorie and high protein. It does contain some Omega 3 fatty acids as well.

 Any of the fish or shellfish mentioned and highlighted in bold shall have some representation in this post.

First we start off with some SALMON recipes. Salmon is an incredibly versatile fish and can be prepared in a variety of ways as you'll see from the selections below.
