Did you know, that by eating fish that are rich in omega 3 oils regularly, you can increase your lifespan by at least two years, a new report has suggested – this information also made the news headlines on British television this week. The study found that older adults with higher levels of blood omega-3 may be able to lower their overall mortality risk by as much as 27%, and their mortality risk from heart disease by about 35%. On average subjects with the highest blood levels of fatty acids found in fish lived 2.2 years longer than those with lower levels.If you are interested in which fish are highest in omega 3 oils, this handy chart from is very interesting: Omega 3 Health Claims

  6. Isobelle forde says

    A big bowl each of mussels in shell cooked in a nice jus of cream, wine, onions garlic and dill, served with crusty fresh bread to mop up the juices. Messy, tasty and kind of sociable!

  7. Shirley Young says

    Just love salmon smeared with pesto, green beans and new potatoes. Fish pie so satisfying: undergoing chemo just now and my taste buds love anything fishy.

  8. Mary Baldwin says

    Our favourite is fish and chips from the best chippy in town. It’s the only fish dish that we all eat and enjoy and is our Friday night treat for the end of the week.

    It’s got to be smoked mackerel with poached eggs and wholemeal soda bread. This used to be my favourite weekend breakfast dish but I tried it one evening for tea when there wasn’t much else in and then wondered why on earth I’d never had it at that time of day before! Vohn x

  21. Andrew Halliwell says

    good old fashioned fish, chips and mushy peas…
    But it’s got to be from a chippy north of brum to be perfect.

  22. Andrew Halliwell says

    There’s no “like” available for delish fish
    I’ve clicked through to find their facebook page and they’ve set it up as a person not as a page that has “like”. So I clicked send a friend request instead. (and clicked “I’m a fan” of course.

  35. Linda Hobbis says

    You can’t beat traditional fish and chips but we also like to take a fillet of white fish, cover it in lemon juice, coriander, chopped chillis and steam it in tin foil. Delicious and healthy. Works well with seabass, monkfish, cod or hake.

    I do love hake but find that difficult to get hold of where we live so next favourite has so be smoked haddock which I love to use in a kedgeree , my hubby doesn’t like that though,so his favourite is fish pie,I put a bit of poached cod, salmon & smoked haddock in ours with hard boiled eggs,cover cheese sauce and top it with creamy mashed potato, bake it in the oven until golden and bubbly then serve with peas, sweetcorn and green beans , yum!

  42. Kathryn S says

    Fish in coconut, a thai style dish with salmon, cod, smoked haddock, prawns and squid in a lovely red thai sauce <3

  43. Linda says

    A nice healthy option to fish and chips: Grilled or baked salmon with new potatoes (which have to be freshly dug from garden because they have more taste), petit pois and sweetcorn.

  44. Lorna Craig says

    maybe not the healthiest option but it has to be fish and chips, or as we call it in Scotland , a fish supper!

  45. Rebecca Nisbet says
