For a long time, tuna was the country’s favorite fish. It was consumed more than any other variety of seafood, well loved for its easy availability and unobjectionable taste. Unfortunately, however, tuna has suffered some bad press after some mercury-related scares around the turn of the millennium. The fish has since lost its lofty position at the top of the fish world in favor of shrimp. All the same, Wild Wasabi would like to remind you of the health benefits of a low-mercury serving of tuna.
Tuna is counted among the fattier fish, which means that it is a superior source of the omega-3 fatty acids that your body needs. It is also a low-cholesterol source of healthy protein, boasting twenty-five grams of protein in a serving of three ounces. Additionally, it’s a good source of valuable nutrients like vitamin b12, phosphorus, selenium, and niacin. These nutrients help stabilize your blood sugar, boost your immune system, and remove toxins from your body that may cause cancer.
You can enjoy tuna at our Japanese restaurant in Lynnwood in the form of our Seven Spice Seared Tuna, our tuna poki, our spicy tuna roll, and much more. Reacquaint yourself with this hearty fish today!
