The Health Benefits of Seafood

As one of the leading seafood companies, Morey’s Seafood International is proud to offer healthy, delicious products. The health benefits of seafood are well documented. The American Heart Association recommends at least two servings of fish each week to maintain optimum heart health. The USDA, as part of their revised dietary guidelines, also recommends eating at least two meals per week where seafood is the primary protein source. Even pregnant women are now encouraged to eat appropriate cooked seafood during their pregnancies to support proper fetal brain development! The evidence and research are overwhelmingly clear – seafood is a healthy food choice!

Here are a few healthy facts, and why Morey’s is a good choice for your two or more meals per week of seafood!

  • Most fish and seafood is naturally low in fat, and in particular, most are trans-fat free. When Morey’s adds marinades or sauces to our seafood as part of our Creations, we use only healthier canola and olive oils as ingredients to keep our products trans-fat free.
  • Some species of fish are high in Omega-3 fatty acids. Salmon is one of the best sources of this important nutrient. Morey’s Seafood offers many different salmon products, to suit your tastes while contributing to your healthy diet.
  • Eating fish may lower your risk for debilitating conditions.  A recent study showed that eating fish significantly reduces the risk of stroke, particularly for women. In addition, some research indicates that eating just one meal of fish each week may reduce your risk of Alzheimer’s disease by up to sixty percent.
  • Gluten is a real concern for many people. Whenever possible, Morey’s provides products that are gluten free, so that you can buy with confidence. We produce a variety of smoked and marinated products, most of which are gluten free.  All of our gluten free products are clearly labeled as such.
  • For people trying to follow a low carb diet. Morey’s products can help, because they are low in carbohydrates and high in protein.

Adding Seafood and Salmon Products Into your Diet IS Easy and Convenient!

salmon-products-199x300Recently, you may have read news articles touting the benefits of seafood, particularly salmon products, in promoting a healthy lifestyle.

But if you want to expand your horizons, preparing seafood  from scratch can be a breeze too, with the right recipes. Here are a couple of choices from the recipe files at Morey’s. Just pick up some fresh salmon  from your trusted retail counter, and give these a try!

  • Honey-Dijon Salmon with Asparagus: In a small bowl, combine one and one half teaspoons of cornstarch with two and a quarter teaspoons of butter, and one teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce, until smooth. Stir in two tablespoons of honey, one-tablespoon Dijon mustard, and a dash of white pepper. Place two four-ounce salmon fillets on two pieces of double thickness heavy-duty foil, drizzle with honey mixture, and sprinkle with one-quarter cup of chopped walnuts. Arrange one half pound of fresh, trimmed asparagus around salmon. Fold foil around salmon and seal tightly, then grill, covered, over medium heat for fifteen to twenty minutes, until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
  • Herbed Salmon: Preheat the oven to three hundred fifty degrees, then prepare one pound of salmon by cutting it into four portions, then rinsing and patting dry. (Chances are your favorite retail seafood counters will be glad to  pre-portion the fish for you.) In a small bowl, combine one teaspoon of lemon peel with one tablespoon each of snipped fresh dill weed and snipped fresh Italian parsley, one half teaspoon each of salt and pepper, and two tablespoons of softened butter. Spread this mixture evenly on the salmon, then place the salmon, herb side down, into an oven-going skillet on medium heat, and cook for three minutes. Turn the salmon over, pour the juice of one half a lemon over it, place the pan in the oven, and cook for three to seven minutes, until the fish flakes easily with a fork. Serve drizzled with pan juices, and topped with additional shredded lemon peel and snipped herbs.
