Fish for your health: White fleshed fish is traditionally high in protein and low in fat. Fish provide an excellent source of Omega 3, an essential fatty acid which helps in lowering blood cholesterol and maintaining a healthy circulatory system.

Suggested wines: A fruity Chardonnay, will add an element of citrus and round out the flavour nicely. A medium-bodied Sauvignon Blanc will enhance the fish like a wedge of lemon and can offer good complementary flavours if you go with a herbacious variety.long description.
