Friday 13th Omega 3 Fish Eating Day!

Friday 13th Omega 3 Fish Eating Day!

Today is Friday and good Christians must not eat meat. So since we are good Christians we ate fish. We had poached fresh salmon and roasted fresh sardines.  We usually eat salmon and/or sardines once every 15 days because we know that these particular fish have high Omega 3 content. On the other hand, though, we try not to exceed eating such fish because of their alleged heavy metal content. We are therefore limiting our intake to twice per month. I would recommend eating fish in general more than any other protein (meat or chicken) but as mentioned above, only twice per month fish rich in Omega 3. I would on the other hand advise not to offer fish in general to your guests. Unfortunately the majority of people like meat and chicken.
Here is how we had them.
Serves 4.
Ingredients: 
  • 600 gr fresh filet skin on one side of salmon  all bones taken out (you know the vertical line of big bones running on the side from up to down).
  • 300 gr whole fresh sardines heads and guts taken out.
  • A few leaves of basil.
  • A few drops of olive oil.
  • Some Za'atar for the sardines. (Za'atar is a mixture of thyme, oregano, sesame seeds and other herbs).
  • ½ cup of water.
