The Heart Foundation recommends 2-3 fish meals per week in order to meet our omega-3 requirements. By swapping red meat or poultry for fish, you will also reduce your saturated fat and dietary cholesterol intake – it’s a win win!
You can use any type of fish you like here, even the much cheaper basa fillets
