Our Japanese restaurant in Lynnwood offers a fine dish of oysters panko. These are oysters that have been deep fried in a coating of breadcrumbs in the traditional Japanese fashion. And, if you’re a fan of oysters, the good news doesn’t stop there: these delightful little shellfish are a great part of any healthy diet.
First of all, oysters are a low fat and low cholesterol source of protein and omega-3. they’re also a great source of zinc, which is a significant part of the health of every cell in your body. Zinc is important to repair your DNA, provide your body with energy, and fight off infections. It’s needed in the production of testosterone in men, which can explain the shellfish’s reputation as an aphrodisiac. A deficiency of zinc is linked to many problems, which include low energy, inhibited growth, and an inability to heal properly.
