Do you eat Oily fish?

Post  TP on Tue Oct 25, 2011 11:15 pm

They keep saying that eating oily fish may boost blood flow to the brain and could stave off dementia in later life? There are meant to be benefits to eating oily fish what do you think?

No I don't.

From what I've read there are loads of health benefits to eating oily fish - and people have been taking cod liver oil for years haven't they. The eveidence seems to be mounting for the increased bloodflow/dementia link too. Sounds like good stuff.

Is tuna counted as oily? Apart from that and cod/pollock I don't. Not much of a fish eater which is probably why my memory is so totally pants Surprised
I tried taking cod liver oil tablets but they kept repeating on me and well by gum the after taste was horrendous Shocked Shocked

Fresh tuna is oily, tinned is not counted as oily because something happens to it during the processing. Cod etc store the good oils in their liver rather than under their skin which is why they're not "as good" and why we take cod liver oil capsules. We eat seeds, nuts, avocados and olive oil to get our omega oils.

We used to have salmon steaks every Monday but we dont now as they got dearer. I never find fish as filling as meat. I do like it however though as long as it hasnt got lots of bones.

herrings in oatmeal

Post  parsley on Fri Feb 03, 2012 9:17 am

herrings are classified as oily fish but prepared and cooked in this traditional way are crispy rather than oily like tinned fish.

Filleting does not require a degree and a sharp knife is only required to chop the head off and gut the fish.

Position the herring tummy on the board and pess along the back. This seperates the backbone from the fillet. tweak away any remaining bones and pull the fins off.

The fillets can be frozen at this stage for later use.

All that is required is medium oatmeal on a flat plate to cover both sides of the herring fillet. Shallow fry on both sides for a crisp finish. great with salad.

also new research suggests oily fish helps combat asthma in childhood

I might give your herring recipe a try parsley next week, OH is into fish more than me really need to be more adventurous.
I can remember my mum doing pickled herrings, did eat them at the time but don't think OH would consider vinegar fish nice.

Before I became a veggie over 20 years ago I did eat a lot of mackeral, herring, pilchards, sardines and rainbow trout.
