Eat Fish. Men. Women.

Fish is back in the news so it made me think about one of my favorite and easiest way to prepare fish. Now, the news is more conflicting reports about whether people get any health benefits from eating fish, especially those rich in omega-3 fatty oils like salmon and halibut. A report by Harvard says eating at least 6 ounces of fish a week can reduce the risk of heart disease and mortality. Wow, that's pretty good. But a conflicting report says more studies need to be done because the Harvard study was mostly observational. Oh well, either way, I think a healthy diet should include a mix of food, including fish, and steaming is such a healthy way to prepare it. And for those who eat responsibly, a good site to learn more about where your fish is coming from and which ones are endangered is the Monterey Bay Aquarium's Seafood Watch. Go fish!
