Like most fish, had­dock is a use­ful source of vi­ta­mins B3, B6 and B12, which help to pro­duce en­ergy in the body and are im­por­tant for a healthy ner­vous sys­tem and men­tal well­be­ing.

Had­dock also pro­vides potas­sium, phos­pho­rus and se­le­nium, but it’s par­tic­u­larly rich in io­dine. This min­eral helps to keep the thy­roid gland (which con­trols our me­tab­o­lism) work­ing prop­erly – a 140 g serv­ing of grilled had­dock pro­vides al­most four times our daily need for io­dine.

So why not ask your fish­mon­ger for had­dock and add to curry in­stead of chicken or use to make fish pie?
