you can eat the skin!!!

Skin tastes great when it's thoughtfully prepared. Growing up, mom baked the hell out of fish and it would come out with gooey nasty skin that I hated. As an adult, with a few years of restaurant experience, I love the stuff and agree gentle guidance is in order. It's good fat, good minerals and despite what some of the comments suggest — you can't get the benefit of some vitamins and minerals by popping a pill. Vitamins need fat to be properly absorbed and they need to be consumed before they rapidly break down — an issue compounded by manufacturing and merchandising.

Eat real food or don't, but don't make the mistake of thinking a pill will make up the difference.
