12 Nutritive Value  Protein: good source, HBV, growth and repair of cells  for energy, prevents heart disease.  Fat: none in white fish, unsaturated fat in oily fish including omega 3 oils, for energy, prevents heart disease.  Carbs.: none, serve with carbs. e.g. rice.  Vitamins: White & Shell, Vit B only, nerves and energy. Oily Fish, Vit B, Vit D (Bones and teeth) and Vit A (eyes, skin, growth, membranes).  Minerals: Iodine for the thyroid gland in all, calcium for bones in shell fish only.  Water: white fish has most water and no fat therefore lowest in calories.

13 Value of Fish in the diet  Important source of protein for those growing.  Unsaturated fat and omega 3 suitable for people with heart disease.  White fish, no fat, suitable for people on low fat or low calorie diets  Many varieties, many different uses.  Some fish are cheap yet nutritious e.g. herring for those on low income  Available fresh, frozen, canned, in prepared meals, no seasonal restriction.  Quick to cook saves fuel

14 In Season  Some fish are in season at certain times of the year… better flavour and cheaper better flavour and cheaper  e.g. Cod season = Sept to March.

15 Buying Fresh Fish  Clean reliable shop  Seaweedy fresh smell  Skin, moist, unbroken  Plenty of scales  Eyes, bright and bulging.  Gills, bright red/pink.  Flesh, firm, moist, unbruised, close grain.  Fresh fish cheaper ‘in season’

16 Fresh Fish can be bought:  Whole, usually smaller fish e.g. herring.  In Fillets, long thin pieces removed from the bone.  Cutlets or Steaks, slices cut across the body of large round fish

17 Buying Frozen fish  Frozen solid  Check ‘best before date’  Packaging not damaged

24 Cooking Fish  Must be absolutely fresh  Wash and dry well  Cooked when flesh is opaque and flakes apart  Cooks quickly, falls apart easily.

25 Suitable Methods of Cooking Fish Frying Shallow or deep, usually coated Grilling Fillets, cutlets, small thin fish Poaching Simmer gently in 85ºC, water, milk, stock, wine. Steaming Between 2 plates or in steamer Baking Whole., fillets, steaks, cutlets often stuffed Stewing In sauce Reheating In fish pie or cakes.

26 Effects Of Cooking  Protein coagulates and shrinks  Becomes opaque  Connective tissue dissolves fish falls apart  Microbes die  Vitamins and minerals dissolve into cooking liquid  Some Vit. B destroyed
