The Health Benefits of Roe

Have you ever tried fish eggs? Fish eggs, or roe, is a common sight in our Japanese restaurant in Lynnwood. Whether it’s sprinkled across a roll or piled onto a piece of nigiri by itself, it’s a delicious addition to any sushi. Many Americans need to work their way up to trying roe, but they’re generally glad that they did. After all, not only does roe taste great, it’s also surprisingly good for you.

As you probably know, seafood is a great source of omega-3 fatty acids. These highly beneficial fats are invaluable towards maintaining a healthy heart and circulatory system. You can get a good dose of omega-3 from fatty fish like salmon and tuna, but the absolute greatest source of omega-3 is fish eggs. A minimal consumption of roe, in particular salmon roe, can easily give you your recommended serving of fatty acids. Come and make roe a bigger part of your diet at Wild Wasabi today!
