The whole catch … Why we love Tasmanian salmon
Tasmania's pristine waters are ideal for growing the best salmon in the world. Apart from its delicious taste, salmon is also one of only 14 known superfoods. The numerous health benefits of salmon mean you should be including it as part of your regular diet.
Salmon has achieved superfood status due to it being low in saturated fat and calories yet high in protein. It contains large amounts of Omega-3 fatty acids and diets rich in Omega-3 have been found to be beneficial to heart health, joint mobility, cancer protection, weight loss, brain development and function and healthier skin and hair. Omega-3 oils are the building blocks of life with every cell in your body using long chain fatty acids. The human body doesn’t produce Omega-3 on its own so diet is crucial.
One of the great things about salmon is that it can be eaten at breakfast (think creamy scrambled eggs with cold smoked salmon and chives), lunch (we love honey and soy Huon salmon with ginger, sesame and Asian greens), or dinner (click here for recipe inspiration from our friends at Huon Aquaculture).
