Salmon has long been touted as a super food to include in your diet and as a source of 'good fats'. Those 'good fats' are also known as omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 is a polyunsaturated fatty acid that has been found to protect against heart disease and stroke. Marine-sourced Omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA) which are found in salmon, have been found to reduce triglycerides, unhealthy fats that can build up and cause blockages in the bloodstream). Just 100g of Tassal Tasmanian Salmon provides 162% of the recommended daily intake of EPA and DHA Omega-3 plus a huge range of B vitamins and minerals, and the very-much-needed-in-Melbourne vitamin D!
Tassal Tasmanian Salmon isn't just a great source of good fats, but also protein making it a great addition to any family table. You can enjoy salmon in so many ways, I like to pan fry it with the skin on as a simple, quick meal, otherwise using it in making salmon burger patties or even getting a little fancy and making a 'rillette' for a dinner party! Using salmon just got easier too with the addition of Tassal's new Fresh Salmon range which is sealed for freshness and is pre-portioned into 300g packets making healthy eating a whole bunch more convenient.
Tassal Tasmanian Fresh Salmon is responsible farmed in the clean, cool waters of Tasmania and carries the Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) certification logo on their packaging. The ASC certification is the highest global standard for responsible fish farming. So you can be assured that you're purchasing fish from farmers that manage their environmental and social impact to the highest standards.
So now that you've got all the facts, head on out to your local Woolworths, pick up some Tassal Tasmanian Fresh Salmon fillets and reap the benefits of this amazing super food!
