Our Seafood

 Our Shrimp is wild caught off the coast of the Gulf of Mexico. They are peeled, deveined and individually frozen. Medium in size and perfect for grilling or stir fry. Ounce for ounce, shrimp also has fewer calories than chicken.  It is a good source of the anti-inflammatory antioxident astaxanthin.  This nutrient has been shown to support the nervous and musculoskeletal systems.  Some studies link it to reduced risk of colon cancer and diabetes related problems.  It is an excellent source of selenium (80% absorption rate) which can reduce cardiovascular disease, depression and protect against cognitive decline. Shrimp is a good source of omega 3 fatty acids with a 1:1 ratio of omega 3 to omega 6. It is also the only seafood to provide copper.  Copper aids in oxygen regulation and metabolism.  This can reduce oxidative stress.

 Our Cod is one of the most popular  fish eaten in the U.S. This lean white fish has a firm texture. It is mild in flavor and can be cooked by almost any method.  Cod is a good source of omega 3 fatty acids, protein, niacin, vitamin B12 and B6, and phosphorus.  This all adds up to a very heart protective fish with the potential to reduce stroke risk and lower triglycerides. 

 

  Our delectable Atlantic Salmon has a mild flavor and a flaky texture. The skin is retained in order to maximize the health benefits and allow for all cooking methods.  This fish is one of the best sources of omega 3 fatty acids as well as vitamin D.  It is the 3rd most consumed fish in the U.S.  It contains the antioxident astaxanthin which accounts for salmon's pink color and protects against heart disease.

 

Tilapia has a mild flavor with a flaky texture.  It is an economical choice for seafood even being called "aquatic chicken".  As recently as 2014, Seafood Watch (a company that makes recommendations based on environmentally sustainable seafood) has rated tilapia as a good alternative based on recent farming methods. It is known as a complete protein.  This means it contains all essential amino acids.  It is also loaded with micronutrients such as selenium, potassium and vitamin B12.

 

 Our Atlantic Ocean Perch has a mild, firm white flesh. Cooked in several methods, it has a lean, flaky and moist texture.  It is high in vitamin B12, selenium, lysine, and isoleucine.  These micronutrients lower fatigue and promote healthy brain function.  It is also a good source of omega 3 fatty acids.  Perch has been shown to facilitate digestion.
