Today, many people have cut out meat completely, or cut back to eating it only a few days a week, opting for a pescatarian diet instead. The health benefits of the nutritious pescatarian diet is well documented, as it's rich in vegetables, grains and pulses, as well as fish and other seafood.


Make the switch and give eating less meat a go. With our top pescatarian recipes you'll be inspired to try fish curry, salmon pasta and fish pie lasagne. With so many delicious dishes on the menu, we can be certain you won't even miss the meat.
