Basically, eating fish—itself an excellent source of good-for-you Omega-3 fatty acids protein, and vitamin D—a couple of times a week is a great idea for your long-term health and your right-now waistline.
These 13 fresh, flavor-packed recipes, from salmon and shrimp to mackerel and scallops, are a delicious way to get your healthy dose of fish.
