Fish dishes provide our body with essential nutrients. In addition, they are rich and contain few calories. A dietitian explains which fish is best for your health.
Saltwater fish is known to be healthier than river fish. But the first one has a specific taste and smell.
Nutritionist Lauren Manaker recommends Alaska pollock, which does not have a strong smell when grilled and is distinguished by its mild flavor.

This fish is rich in important vitamins, such as D and B12, as well as minerals, selenium, niacin, potassium, as well as proteins, according to the expert.
Thanks to a high content of antioxidants and fatty acids, Alaska pollock helps prevent cardiovascular and oncological diseases, says the specialist.
One serving of this fish contains 50 to 1,000 milligrams of omega-3s.
One of the disadvantages of shellfish is that it can contain mercury. But Alaska pollock has a reputation for being safe and is among the fish with the least amount of this chemical element, says Manaker.
In addition, it emits less greenhouse gases.
