Omega-3 is a fatty acid that comes with a host of benefits. Chiefly, it’s thought to boost heart health. While it is found in walnuts, chia seeds, grass-fed meat and several vegetables, one of the best sources is oily fish, with mackerel, salmon, sardines, tuna and herring all boasting significant quantities.
NHS guidelines suggest a healthy diet should include two portions of fish per week, with one of those being an oily fish. Yet, according to a recent poll by OG Science and Wellbeing, the average Briton consumes oily fish once every six weeks (and a quarter of us can’t even name one).
The jury’s out on omega-3 supplements, and eating natural sources is thought to be more beneficial. Telegraph Food has raided its archives to find the tastiest oily fish recipes to help you boost your intake.
