5 Best Fish to Eat

Wild Salmon

Wild salmon has heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids that lower blood pressure, triglycerides, and arrhythmia risk. 

Add flaked salmon to a salad or serve with roasted asparagus and brown rice for a balanced supper.


This mild-flavored wild, meaty white fish is ideal for spring and summer recipes. It's low-calorie and satisfying, making it a great weight-loss snack.

Pacific Cod

As long as you avoid breaded and fried Pacific cod, which is used in fish sticks, research suggests it can help you lose weight.

Arctic Char

If available, fresh Arctic char is ideal, although farmed is safe too. In the U.S., Arctic char is farmed in clean tanks, not ocean enclosures.


Grill herring and dress with mustard, lemon juice, and its own oil for a protein- and fat-rich supper.
