“It is much safer to eat fish than it is not to eat it.” – Chris Kresser
I am trying to get more fish into my diet. I don’t love cooked fish and I am not a fan of tuna salad either. I lost the taste for it when I was pregnant. Can you relate?
I do like cold fish and love sardines. These little fish are packed with nutrients including Omega-3’s and selenium which apparently can protect you against mercury toxicity.
Here is a cute little sardine selenium snack. This is incredibly delicious and satisfying! Now if I could only get my daughter to eat it!
Sardine Selenium Snack
This recipe make enough sardine salad to save some for the next day or to serve 2-3 people.
- 1 can sardines packed in olive oil (where to but canned sardines with no BPA)
- 1 avocado, cut in half and pit removed
- juice from half a lemon
- 1 Tbsp raw apple cider vinegar
- 2 Tbsp homemade ghee mayo (or whatever homemade mayo you prefer)
Dump the contents of the tinned sardines into a bowl, including the olive oil. Mash up the sardines (bones and all – the bones provide minerals and are very soft – you will not even notice them) and the mayo and lemon until it resembles tuna salad. Scoop a dollop of the sardine mix into each half of avocado and sprinkle with the apple cider vinegar. Garnish with tomatoes, pickled beets or kraut and enjoy!

My nutritionist is recommending I eat a lot of sardines for the selenium and DHA which will help remove the toxic level of heavy metals in my body we need to chelate out.
I’ve never liked fish at all, but this looks worth trying. Thanks!
I just made this today and it is delicious! I added alfalfa sprouts to the sardine mixture and sprinkled a little bit of Celtic sea salt on top. Mmmmm!
