    Someone (Leanne Ely) must be reading here, too!:


    We know that we should be adding fish to our diets for optimal health, but which fish should you be reaching for?

    It’s hard to go wrong as long as it’s wild fish caught in a sustainable, responsible manner, but one of the healthiest fishes you can buy is mackerel, a fatty deep water fish with a very firm flesh and a strong flavor.

    Mackerel is easy to cook, it tastes great and it’s very good for you.

    Let’s look at some of the health benefits of this delicious fish:

    Omega-3. Mackerel is famous for being a very oily fish. It’s very high in those omega-3 fatty acids that we all should be eating more of.

    Heart health. Mackerel can actually improve the condition of the heart. It lowers blood pressure and can prevent stroke.

    Low in calories. A 3-ounce serving of this firm fish contains roughly 230 calories (providing it’s been cooked without added butter or sauces), which makes a fillet lower in calories than other meats.

    High in protein. There are 21 grams of protein in that 3-ounce serving of mackerel and like other fishes, it contains no carbs, making it a wonderful item to add to your dinner plate.

    Minerals. Mackerel contains calcium, potassium, phosphorous, magnesium and selenium. It’s a good source of folate, choline, Niacin, Vitamins A, D, K, B12 and C.

    Mackerel lowers cancer-causing agents in the body, improves our immune systems and is great for brain health. Mackerel can help ease symptoms of arthritis, arthrosis and even migraine pain. Holy mackerel!

    Now, one thing to be aware of when purchasing mackerel is that it is a deep water fish and depending on where it came from it may contain mercury. Pregnant women should not eat mackerel or any food that may contain mercury because it may harm the developing baby’s nervous system.

    To cook mackerel, simply pan fry it at medium heat until it flakes with a fork!

    Have you ever tried mackerel?

    I use frozen fish that I get at a chinese store. They are about 6 inches long and I use a hand/stick blender that comes with a bowl. It works perfect every time. It probably wouldn't do a big fish head but I want the whole fish anyway....

    I am almost ready to try a fish head smoothie. Looks like I can use any fish?
