In recent years, people have become more conscious of healthy eating and want to eat lighter foods. The American Heart Association recommends eating fish at least two times per week. This means two servings of 3.5 ounces of cooked fish or about ¾ cup of flaked fish.
Fish is an excellent source of protein and omega-3 fatty acids and it’s usually low in saturated fat. Eating fish is believed to reduce the risk of dying of heart disease, and a recent study found eating baked or broiled fish weekly boosts brain health.
