Haddock

Haddock is a saltwater fish that's very popular as food; along with Atlantic cod and plaice, haddock is one of the most popular fish used in British fish and chips. When it's not battered and deep fried though, haddock is a great source of low-fat protein and essential minerals. In particular, haddock is a great source of selenium; one 3 oz serving of cooked haddock provides close to 50% of the recommended dietary intake. Selenium has been linked to helping prevent cancer, heart disease and diabetes. A lack of selenium has also been tied to a weakened immune system, so eat up!
