Throw It Back!


That tilefish you see? It’s practically dripping with mercury— just like swordfish, king mackerel, and other large predatory fish. So here’s what you should reel in: According to a Scandinavian study, small, oily fish like sardines, herring, and anchovies contain high levels of heart-healthy omega-3s; and because they’re low on the food chain, they house less mercury than their big brothers. Try canned versions of the little guys mashed into a mustardy dressing for spinach, or atop an open faced sandwich of wholewheat bread, cream cheese, thinly sliced red onion, and a squeeze of lemon juice.
