Do you eat enough fish?

Jamie Oliver says Pollocks to Canadians who say they’re eating enough fish! 

Here are some interesting stats for you: "A recent study conducted by The Canadian Aquacultural Industry Alliance reports that, on average, Canadians consume just 101g of fish or seafood a week. This is almost a full serving short of the Canada Food Guide recommended two 75g portions of fish or seafood a week."
Jamie Oliver is challenging Canadians to eat more fish with the release of his new frozen fish range in Sobeys stores across Canada.  Made with Marine Stewardship Council (MSC)-certified Pollock, Jamie’s range includes Crispy Pollock Fishcakes; Brilliant Fish Fillet Fingers and Crispy Pollock & Sweetcorn Fishcakes. Alaska Pollock often swims under the radar but it is a mild, white-fleshed fish that is high in protein, low in fat and contains heart healthy omega-3 fatty acids.

I know our family doesn't eat enough fish. It isn't because we don't like it, actually our whole family loves fish. Our family is working towards more fish in our diet and we were really excited to try out these fish products. Over all we loved all three of them. I especially love the Crispy Pollock & Sweetcorn fishcakes and so did my daughter. Hubby and son found themselves loving the other fishcakes. 

Over the last few weeks I have been really cracking down on my calories we decided to not do the classic fish & chips even though I know they would go great together. We did the cakes on the side with a nice big mixed green salad and some fancy rice. 
The fish sticks we made into fisher burgers/wraps with salad and onion rings/fries. 
After trying Jamie's new line we look forward to adding it to our menu on a regular basis, as it is tasty and easy to cook. It goes well with pretty much anything and is really filling.
