Fish is a great alternative to meat and is naturally high in protein. White fish make a good low-fat option, and oily fish, such as salmon, mackerel and sardines, include important fat soluble nutrients such as vitamin D and omega 3. Including fish in your diet has also been linked to health benefits such as supporting brain health and mental health, as well as reducing the risk of heart disease or stroke. Fish is super versatile and easy to prepare, and a healthy balanced diet should include just two portions a week, one of which should be an oily fish.

We've also got plenty more healthy recipes to inspire you, including these healthy chicken recipes, healthy chicken breast recipes and healthy mince recipes.
