Olive Oil on Salad Is Better Than Olive Oil in Cooking
The good, nutritious fats you get from extra-virgin olive oil are altered when the oil is heated. That doesn't make it bad for you when it's used in cooking; it just takes away some of its magic properties. So go ahead and use a little of it to keep the fish from sticking to the pan. But for maximum health benefits, drizzle it on your salad or swirl it into a green juice (it adds amazing richness).
