“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!
