Blackened or grilled?
At Tricky Fish, we serve salmon both ways.
In fact, we serve Redfish, Tilapia, and other delicious Gulf seafood as well, but salmon has a special place in our health conscious hearts. For all those out of there looking to eat better, don’t miss out on these 5 health benefits of eating salmon on a regular basis:
High in Omega 3 Fatty Acids
We’ve all heard that fish is heart healthy because it’s high in Omega 3 fatty acids, and salmon is king of Omega 3s! Studies have shown that salmon is loaded with EPA and DHA, both necessary for heart health. How so? Studies have shown it to reduce blood pressure, reduce risk factors for heart disease, and reverse inflammation of the arteries. Sounds pretty good to us.
Loaded with Vitamin B
Salmon is rich in Vitamin B, which is attributed to brain and heart health. It has been shown to reduce inflammation, repair DNA, and help optimize energy production from food.
Salmon is a lean protein that not only promotes a healthy, low fat diet, but it also helps you maintain muscle mass, protects bone density, and contributes toward healing after injury. Protein is critical to your diet and not something your body can produce on its own.
High in Antioxidants
We don’t often think of salmon when we think of antioxidants, but salmon is actually quite high in an antioxidant called astaxanthin. Antioxidants work to prevent oxidation of cells, a process that leads to aging, increased inflammation, and even higher LDL cholesterol levels.
Low Calorie Content
Looking to get your body ready for swimsuit season? Salmon is a great choice. It’s low in calories – but also high in protein, vitamins, and minerals that promote a healthy lifestyle. Plus – the fat it does have is mainly good fat, thanks to salmon’s Omega 3 fatty acid content.
So we’re going to ask again….blackened or grilled?
