6 Fish Recipes Everyone Needs to Know


Fish has a reputation for being low-calorie, high protein brain food, thanks to the essential omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil. The human body can’t naturally produce omega-3s, but they are needed for a healthy body, inside and out.

Here are 6 ways adding a dose of fish to your diet can improve your health:

  1. It prevents heart disease
  2. Reduces Alzheimer’s risk
  3. Improves your skin and hair
  4. Eases depression
  5. Boosts brain development
  6. Dose of Vitamin D

Here are 9 of my favourite fish recipes. Click on the recipe title to read the full recipe. 

One: Healthy Salmon Supper 

Although salmon is quite expensive, it is extremely good for you and it tastes out of this world. This easy method of crusting the fish in cracked black pepper and pan frying it is perfect for a healthy weekend night dinner option.


Two: Baked Lemon & Basil Fish

I love cooking with red stumpose, it has a similar taste to hake but it’s a bit firmer. I decided to bake it in the oven with some delicious veggies and sauce. This is the perfect week night dinner, it is healthy and takes no time to cook.

Five: Everybody Loves Snoek 

Snoek is the most delicious fish, especially when it is slightly smoked. It is one of South Africa’s great dishes. If you are lucky enough to get a fresh snoek, here’s how to prepare and cook it to perfection. I would suggest buying it either from your fish monger or Woolworths, they butterfly it for you.


Six: Hake with Olives and An Easy Tomato Sauce 

This dish is super easy to make and you can use this sauce for absolutely everything! The trick is to buy the best fresh fish from your fishmonger.
