Swordfish, a Nutritious and Healthy Addition to Any Diet
Swordfish belongs to the group of fish that have recently become more appreciated for their contribution of omega-3 essential oils to the diet. These fats, which have to be provided by the diet, have now been shown to have a host of health giving benefits including combating rheumatoid arthritis, heart attacks, high blood pressure, clogged arteries, psoriasis, asthma, inflammatory bowel disease, multiple sclerosis and even migraine headaches. Doctors and nutritionists now recommend three portions of fatty fish per week to get the full health giving benefits.
Other oily fish which are also beneficial include, tuna, salmon, mackerel, sardines and boquerones. Swordfish is found in both the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea and forms quite a large part of the Mediterranean Diet, which is said to be so healthful and indeed is found on the menu of most restaurants all along the coast.
Swordfish- Buying and Storing. When buying swordfish pick fish that is a white to pinkish-beige, if it is tinged with brown it is a sign of an off flavor. Swordfish does have a dark meat, along with the white, but this should be cherry red not brown.
