...simply because it replaces meat. US dietary recommendations require us to eat fish at least two times per week-that's two days out of the week that we are not eating meat or meat products for dinner.

If I have inspired you to add more fish to your diet, try this healthy recipe for Fish Steaks with Herbed Leek and Parsley. Any wild fish steak will do with one caveat: Swordfish, while incredibly healthy is one of those fish that can carry high levels of mercury so consume it sparingly.
Pre heat oven to 400 °F. Heat olive oil in a skillet under medium flame. Add the onions leeks and sauce until tender-2-3 minutes. Try not to burn. Add the garlic and Parsley and stir . Then add the Fish Lover’s Spice and combine all ingredients into a paste.
Add the cooked mixture to the top of each fish steak and bake for 10-12 minutes. If your steak is thicker than an inch, add another couple minutes but remember, fish is better slightly undercooked than over cooked. Also keep in mind that fish continues to cook slightly after it is removed from heat.
Serve with your choice of vegetable. In this photo, a fennel coulis is the base. Look for that recipe using HOY saffron salt.
