The purpose of this list is to give the reader an idea of which species of fish are generally considered kosher. Unfortunately, the common, unscientific, names of fish are very inaccurate.

Kosher species of fish, canned in brine, water or vegetable oil are approved. Fresh or frozen fish should always be bought with some skin attached, so you can check for scales.

Plain, unflavored cold smoked kosher species of fish, either whole or filleted, are permitted provided that some skin is attached. The following is a list of labels reviewed and approved by the Office of the Chief Rabbi of Ireland.

Butter Fish Information is obtained from Washout Authority In Judaism, in addition to requiring the presence of true fish scales, kosher fish must also have fins.

This seemingly redundant requirement serves to remove ambiguity by excluding sinless sea creatures that possess various features which might be confused for scales, including shells (such as those of shrimp or prawns). Any sea creature that lacks gills and can only breathe oxygen from air through lungs, or has an exoskeleton instead of and exoskeleton, :343 is by default not kosher because it cannot be a fish.

The list of fish on this page, therefore, coincides with those which possess the combination of exoskeleton, gills, fins, and scales. According to the Cook or divine decrees of the Torah and the Talmud, for a fish to be declared kosher, it must have scales and fins.

Thus, a grass carp, mirror carp, and salmon are kosher, whereas a shark, whose scales are microscopic, a sturgeon, whose acutes can not be easily removed without cutting them out of the body, and a swordfish, which loses all of its scales as an adult, are all not kosher. Although there is an opinion of Rabbi Yosef Karo of Safe (in his 16th century legal commentary, Bat Yosef) that milk and fish should not be cooked or eaten together, Karo references the Shulchan Arch (OC 173:2) which actually deals with meat, and not fish.

The Chased custom is not to eat fish together with actual milk, but to permit it where other dairy products are involved, so that adding a touch of butter or cream to the milk is sufficient to permit mixing it with fish. Most Sunni Muslim schools of jurisprudence (Shaft'i, Handball, and Malik) hold as a general rule that all “sea game” (animals of the sea) are permissible to eat with a few minor exceptions. Thus, for example, the local dish Lassa (which includes meats such as shrimp and squid with a soup base made from shrimp paste), is deemed permissible in the Shaft'i Sunni Muslim majority nations of Indonesia and Malaysia where it is commonly consumed.

Ready in just over 20 minutes, this healthy, low-carb baked fish recipe is perfect for any night of the week. Whenever I'm out at my local grocery store, I make a point of stopping at the fish counter to chat up my fishmonger friend.

Last time, I happened upon some beautiful looking grouper fillets and my mind immediately went to something quick and fuss-free like a baked fish dinner. This baked grouper recipe gets its bold Mediterranean kick from a few spices and a combination of favorites: fresh garlic, tomatoes, olives, lemon juice, and extra virgin olive oil.

I use the more readily available red grouper, a white fish from the sea bass family. Grouper lends itself to a variety of preparations--I love it grilled, pan seared, or baked.

Textures and thickness may vary, so be sure to adjust the cooking time as needed (fish is ready when its flesh turns opaque and you can easily flake it using a fork; internal temp should register 145 degrees F.) Some good options, as I mentioned earlier: red snapper fillets, cod, halibut, haddock, or sea bass.

Here, we give it a quick coating in some Mediterranean spices including cumin, oregano, and paprika for color and depth. More Mediterranean Flavor Makers: in addition to the spice mixture, we add in fresh minced garlic, fresh lemon juice, and excellent extra virgin olive oil.

This trio is essential to creating the bright and bold Mediterranean flare to this recipe. The olives here contribute a distinctive rich, salty, slightly tangy flavor--a bit of Greek twist.

I love using dill here; it's grassy with a bit of anise-like licorice flavor works well with fish. Pat fish fillets dry and season on both sides with kosher salt.

Prepare the spice mixture of cumin, oregano and paprika in a small bowl, then season the fish well on both sides. Bake for about 12 to 13 minutes or until the fish turns opaque and flakes easily using a fork.

TIP: You've heard me say this earlier, no one likes dry fish so avoid overcooking your grouper. This grouper recipe makes a light and delicious dinner any night of the week.

For these reasons, the Orthodox Union (the world’s largest kosher -certification agency), which used to publish a kosher fish list, stopped doing so in the early 2000s. One other issue to keep in mind: While the Conservative movement regards swordfish and sturgeon as kosher, most Orthodox sources do not.

It’s incredibly important to get ample omega-3 fatty acids, and certain fish can serve as potent sources. But due to issues like mining, sewage and fossil fuel emissions, heavy metals like mercury are winding up in the water and building up in our fish.

Unfortunately, low-level mercury poisoning from contaminated seafood is a real threat and can lead to devastating effects on health. Not only that, but some fish have also been so overfished that they are on the brink of collapse, which can have detrimental effects on the ocean ecosystem.

In fact, the shift to eating more farmed fish like tilapia is leading to highly inflammatory diets, according to a 2008 study published in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association. Wake Forest University School of Medicine researchers say tilapia is one of the most widely consumed fish in America.

Sustaining high levels of inflammation in the body can worsen symptoms of autoimmune disorders and may be linked to chronic conditions like heart disease, cancer and diabetes. If you must eat this fish, avoid tilapia from China, where farming practices are particularly worrisome.

Although the female cod releases more than a hundred million eggs, only a few are able to survive to adulthood. In 2014, Oceana, the largest ocean conservation group in the world, conducted an investigation using data from the National Marine Fisheries Service.

They found that commercial fishermen in the U.S. throw about 2 billion pounds of “by catch” overboard each year. According to the report, if you’ve eaten U.S. halibut, there’s a good chance it came from this damaging fishery.

Without further protection and enforcement of existing efforts, we may forever lose one of the biggest, most interesting fishes in the world. Furthermore, harvesting the fish from Chile is also plagued by poor management and by catch problems.

Eel Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch places eel on the “Avoid” list on its sushi guide because it’s slow to mature and has been overfished in many parts of the world, bringing some populations to collapse. In the Delaware River, for instance, eels are an integral part of spreading mussel populations that serve as natural water filters.

Aside from the issues with overfishing, eels tend to readily absorb and store harmful chemicals and contaminants such as poly chlorinated biphenyls (PCs) and flame retardants. What’s more, studies show that farmed salmon is more likely to contain harmful contaminants like PCs, which are pollutants linked to insulin resistance, obesity, cancer and stroke.

In 2009, Italian researchers discovered that 4-hexylresorcinol, a food additive used to prevent discoloration in shrimp that could reduce sperm count in men and increase breast cancer risk in women. Shrimp farm ponds are also treated with harmful chemicals and pesticides such as malachite green, rote none and organic compounds, all of which can have detrimental effects on health.

Plus, an Associated Press investigation uncovered a slavery network in Thailand dedicated to peeling shrimp sold around the world. In 2007, Thailand alone exported about $1.24 billion to the United States, according to Food and Water Watch.

Although Alaskan king crab legs legally can only be called that if they’re harvested from Alaska, widespread mislabeling is the norm. Generally known as “slime head” within the scientific community, seafood marketers had other ideas for this fish and gave the species a more appetizing name.

Beyond that, the orange roughly is also known to have higher mercury levels, which can be dangerous if consumed in large amounts. But apart from that, most shark species, which are slow to mature and don’t have a lot of offspring, are severely depleted.

Often referred to as Hon Mauro on sushi menus, this simply means blue fin tuna, which should be avoided at all costs. A better sushi choice would be fatso/skip jack tuna caught through Pacific troll or pole and line methods only.

However, due to its high demand for sushi, fisheries managers are still allowing commercial fishing to target it. Sadly, blue fin tuna numbers are at just 2.6 percent of historic population levels.

Aside from the obvious population collapse and extinction threat, this is also a large predatory fish that harbors higher levels of mercury. In fact, the mercury in this fish is so high that the Environmental Defense Fund recommends women and children avoid it altogether.

That’s certainly the case with king mackerel, as the Food and Drug Administration warns women and children to outright avoid it. Luckily, Atlantic mackerel is high in omega-3s, low in mercury and is rated a top choice in terms of health and sustainability.

In 2015, an investigation found that more than a third of 19 restaurants in Atlanta sold fantasies (also known as “Vietnamese catfish”) as grouper. Testing also found that grouper for sale is actually often king mackerel or white fin weakfish, a cheaper alternative.

According to the International Union for Conservation of Nature, sturgeon are “more critically endangered than any other group of species.” The best fish options are ones that come from sustainable fisheries, are low in contaminants and high in omega 3 fatty acids.

Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch calls this the “Super Green List.” In addition to being rich in heart-healthy fats, salmon is a great source of protein, B vitamins, potassium and selenium.

Atlantic mackerel This oily fish is also high in health omega-3 fatty acids, along with protein, niacin, selenium and vitamin B12. Keep in mind that mackerel is often sold preserved in tons of salt, so be sure to soak it and rinse well before cooking and eating to reduce sodium levels.

Albacore Tuna (troll- or pole-caught, from the U.S. or British Columbia) Sable fish/Black Cod (from Alaska and Canadian Pacific) Finding safer seafood can be challenging and requires you to consider many factors, including sustainability, nutritional value, mercury levels and the risk of contamination with pollutants, pesticides or harmful chemicals.

Finally, when you do eat fish, opt for things like wild-caught Alaskan salmon, Pacific sardines and Atlantic mackerel. It is a shame that fish cookery for most people come down to salmon, tuna, and defile, with the occasional overbaked-in-oil tilapia (must).
