Experts at the American Heart Association recommend eating fish twice per week. Each serving should be 3.5 ounces cooked, or about 3/4 cup flaked (as in tuna.) Fatty fish like salmon, mackerel, herring, lake trout, sardines, and albacore tuna contain the highest amounts of omega-3s. Now, if you're reading this and thinking, No way does my family eat fish twice a week, you're not alone—most people fall short. Just jump in and start somewhere. For an easy, tasty lunch, make a tuna or salmon salad (see our recipe, below). Aim to have fish for dinner once per week (see more recipes below). If you are concerned about mercury, follow the FDA and EPA guidelines that suggest women of childbearing age and children may eat up to 12 ounces a week of light tuna and "lower in mercury" seafood (like Pacific flounder, sole, or scallops), or 6 ounces of albacore tuna.Get the Salmon Salad recipeGet more fish recipes
