If you're concerned about eating farmed salmon, there are a number of other fish that provide heart-healthy omega-3s.
Mackerel Vin BlancIn addition to salmon, mackerel is also a great source of omega-3 fatty acids. Here, the mackerel fillets are poached in a flavorful broth of white wine, vinegar, olive oil, along with sliced carrots and a blend of spices.
Roasted Wild Salmon and DillThe key to avoiding contamination issues with farmed salmon is to eat wild salmon. If wild salmon is not in season, you can buy it frozen. Just look on the label for "fish frozen at sea" or FAS.
Herring and Apple SaladThis light version of herringsalat (herring salad) features kippered herring, Granny Smith apple, cucumber and fresh dill. For maximum flavor, you'll need to let it chill for about 4 hours.
Spaghetti with Anchovies and BreadcrumbsAnchovies are so much more than a topping for pizza-they're one of the key flavor ingredients in this easy pasta dish and a great source of heart-healthy fat. Canned anchovies are higher in sodium than most fresh fish, but you only need to use a few to get big flavor.
Winter Greens, Asiago, and Anchovy PizzaInstead of topping your pizza with "everything but anchovies", give these little fish a chance. They add a salty flavor to this pizza and provide, along with the greens, great benefits for your heart.
Anchovy and White Bean PizzaMake your pizza heart healthy by topping it with omega-3-containing anchovies and high-fiber white beans.
Fresh Sardines on Grilled BreadNot only are fresh sardines high in omega-3 fats, they're also a good source of vitamin D, calcium, and protein. These fresh sardines are brushed with olive oil, grilled, and served on thick, hearty slices of bread.
Fennel-Sardine SpaghettiSardines in spaghetti? Why not? They add a rich, savory flavor to the pasta, and balance nicely with the tomato sauce and fresh fennel.
Sesame-Crusted Tuna with Wasabi-Ponzu SauceTuna is not quite as high in omega-3 fats as salmon, but it's still a good source and a nice alternative when you're in the mood for a great piece of fish. Here, the tuna takes on an Asian flair with a coating of sesame seeds and a sauce of wasabi paste, soy sauce and fresh ginger.
Mushroom and Bacon-Stuffed TroutLake trout actually has a slightly higher omega-3 fat content than salmon, although both types of fish are considered excellent sources. This recipe called for whole trout to be stuffed with a savory breadcrumb, mushroom and bacon mixture.
