Eating baked or broiled fish might just add years to your life by protecting your heart from cardio-vascular disease.

Deep frying and heavy batters won’t do the job.

Make sure that fish is baked or broiled and not loaded with heavy sauces or accompanied by french fries or other fried and greasy sides.

The study followed the eating habits and health of about 85,000 postmenopausal women for an average of 10 years. Compared to women who rarely or never ate fish, those who ate five or more servings per week had a 30% lower risk of developing heart failure—but only if the fish was baked or broiled.

Try an easy and heart healthy Broiled Salmon and Quinoa salad dinner. Delicious and nutritious!
