Week 2


GOAL | Eat fish at least three times this week

  1. Have fish for lunch, Nothing fancy is needed—think canned tuna or salmon. Try a salmon-cucumber sandwich with low-fat cream cheese.
  2. Have a fish dinner at least once this week. Try a recipe below, or throw salmon or tuna steaks on the grill.
  3.  Check off a fish serving by using canned clams, salmon, anchovies, or sardines. Try clam sauce over pasta, an anchovy-olive spread (tapenade) as an appetizer, or salmon croquettes. 
  4. Treat yourself. The appeal of crab legs or lobster should not be ignored. Make one of these your treat for the week. 
  5. If you order pizza (go light on the cheese), top it with anchovies. Or try our tuna-topped pizza (recipe below),

Tip | The flesh of fresh fish should spring back if you press it, its surface should glisten, and it shouldn’t smell fishy. Frozen fish is generally a good bet, since it’s often flash-frozen on docks or on the fishing boats themselves,
