Tips for Eating more Seafood

You Can Do It!

(This is the first blog in a series called “YOU CAN DO IT!”  We believe that every single human on earth should enjoy the abounding benefits of eating more seafood. So we are here to provide tips to eat more seafood and boost your confidence around all things seafood! Follow along as we throw back the curtain and empower you to make a shift in your kitchen and around your dinner table for good!)

Looking to learn how to create fast, easy, healthy meals for your family? Seafood checks every box. 

Here is a quick little snapshot of the benefits of eating seafood: promotes heart health, loaded with omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins, boosts brain power, promotes healthier skin and hair, and it can even ease joint pain. It is not the least bit surprising that in 2018, The American Heart Association doubled down and recommended consuming two 3.5-ounce servings of non-fried fish every week. 

So, we can all agree that adding fish into your diet is just a good idea. So why aren’t more people eating the recommended two servings of fatty fish per week? We took it to the streets and here are the top reasons people do not buy and consume more seafood:

  1. I don’t know how to buy seafood!
  2. I don’t know how to cook seafood! 
  3. I don’t want a stinky kitchen!
  4. I don’t know the rules of seafood safety!

Sooooo, we have a confidence problem?!?!  YOU CAN DO THIS!  We created Fish Fixe to eliminate these barriers. With us in your corner, you can buy and prepare seafood confidently!  You can do it in a clean kitchen and know that what you are consuming is safe! Here are your tips for eating more seafood.

No Stress Purchasing

Have you ever stared at the seafood case at your local market? You might have felt utterly confused by the labeling or generally unimpressed by your options. Fish Fixe has taken the confusion out of purchasing seafood. We make it easy by allowing you a stress free, information rich experience on our website where you can peruse our proteins, see where they are sourced, and even get details on the texture of each fish.  You can take your time learning about each protein without stress or pressure so when you build your Fish Fixe box, you can do so with confidence. 

And rest easy knowing that all of our proteins are caught, portioned and flash frozen within hours of being pulled from our great bodies of water.  When we say fresh…we mean it! 

No Stress Prep

Preparing seafood has never been easier.  Every single perfectly portioned protein that arrives on your doorstep is vacuum sealed and frozen at the peak of freshness.  On each package, you will find thaw and prep directions.  We typically give you several cooking options as well for each protein. Do you want to bake it?  Sear it?  Pan fry it?  There are easy step by step directions that take all the guesswork out of how to prepare your seafood.

 And if you want to spend a little extra time in the kitchen and elevate your proteins, we have an entire library Fish Fish Kitchen | Seafood Recipes for Home Chefs of recipes that have been created in the Fish Fixe Kitchen with you in mind.  And just remember for almost all seafood, a sprinkle of salt and pepper and a quick seven minute sear will have you ringing the dinner bell.

No Smelly Kitchen

We love to cook seafood (obviously), but what we did not love was the mess and the smell that was sometimes left behind. There just had to be a better way, so we set out to find a solution to this and boy, did we knock it out of the park!  The kraft packaging for our seafood is eco-friendly and odor absorbent when sealed; which makes it a perfect smell-free way to dispose of prep trash. And because our seafood is caught, portioned and flash frozen within hours of being caught, you can rest assured it is the freshest of fresh.  Beware of any fish that takes on an unpleasant odor when being cooked, that usually means it spent too much time in the thawing process.  All of our fish is flash frozen, so the only time it is thawed is when you choose to do so…this greatly helps in keeping your kitchen odor free.

No Seafood Safety Concerns

All Fish Fixe products should arrive frozen. We ship with a 1-2 day delivery window to 98% of the country. We have worked hard on our packaging and systems to ensure that you receive your premium seafood in perfect condition!  We deeply feel that frozen seafood is truly one of the easiest and most affordable ways to get seafood into your weekly rotation.  Seafood safety is our top priority so we share these guidelines with our customers to ensure all seafood that arrives is safe to consume:

Now go forth.  You are ready to purchase seafood with confidence.  Cook seafood with confidence.  And enjoy seafood with confidence.  Shop Fish Fixe!
