The Friendly Fish Grill

Why fish? It takes well to grilling, cooks in no time, and it's good for your heart. So good, in fact, that nutrition experts recommend eating three to four servings a week for maximum health benefits (especially fish rich in omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, like bluefish, mackerel and salmon).

The two marinades that follow are delicious flavor boosters for several types of fish. Just make sure you pick your fish from the accompanying environmentally friendly fish list below (see "Bon Appetit!").

Do you know which fish are endangered?

Your best environmental bet is to avoid those on our Don't Catch/Don't Eat list and stick to those listed under Bon Appetit.
