Eating Cold Water Fish

Last week, while we were eating lunch at the FEE Summer Seminars, John Durant of Hunter-Gatherer.com pulled a can of sardines out of his backpack and began chowing away. When I looked a little surprised, he said, “We all need to eat more cold water fish.”

Fish has been a weakness in my primal diet. I know I do not get enough Omega-3s, and what little I do get, I most certainly don’t get from fish. The only fish I eat is salmon, and only once a month at that. So, after lunch with John, I decided I need to make an effort to eat more cold water fish. The next day, I picked up some wild-caught sardines at Trader Joe’s.

Admittedly, as someone who can barely take the smell of fish, I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to stomach the sardines. I got up the courage today to fry a tin of them for lunch. I pulled them out of the cabinet, sprinkled on some black pepper and a bit of garlic powder, and browned them in the skillet.

The verdict? I ate them and they weren’t bad. I needed to put sriracha on top to get them down, but I ate them and didn’t gag. In fact, they were better than I expected. (I am slowly overcoming my weak stomach!)

I am making an effort to eat them once a week. I’ll see if I can get to where I actually enjoy them.

Next up for me: Bar Harbor Smoked Wild Kipper.

Do you eat cold water fish? If like me, this is a missing part of your diet, try some this week.

Is this already part of your diet? If so, what is your favorite way to prepare them?

    Great post. Canned fish has definitely become a regular part of my weekly food routine. They’re super convenient to store in your desk at work for those times you’re in a pinch. My two favorites are Cole’s Piripiri Mackerel (available at my Whole Foods), and Trader Joe’s Skinless Smoked Trout. In my opinion, both these products would be great for someone who’s hesitant to eat canned fish…
