Seafood Stew

I say often that my published dishes are very delicious and healthy. What else can I tell you about this seafood stew now? First of all it is super delicious. This dish is gluten and dairy free. This fish stew is absolutely recommended if you follow paleo diet. It’s very easy to substitute tapioca flour to zero carb konjac flour if you follow keto diet. But I used only 1 tablespoon of tapioca flour in this dish what is a very small amount for 4 persons.

The seafood mixture contains mussels, prawns, mini squids, crabs and fish. I don’t always go to my fishmonger in the harbor to buy fresh mixture. Sometimes I buy it in a frozen package. I suggest having a pack of it in the freezer, it always comes in handy.

Tip!

Defrost the seafood mixture before cooking if you are not using fresh.

Seafood is Very Healthy

Seafood provides essential nutrients to the body. It contains high-quality protein, vitamins and minerals, and is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids. According to a Harvard study, eating 250 grams of seafood each week reduces the risk of dying from heart disease by 36%.

Vitamin A – helps protect vision and boost immune systems.
Vitamins B-complex – influence energy production, metabolism, and concentration. They contribute to the healthy development of the nervous system.
Vitamin D – promotes healthy bone growth, calcium absorption, and boosts immune system efficiency and cell growth. It is very important to know that the seafood is one of the only food sources of Vitamin D.

Omega-3 fatty acids are essential fatty acids that are required for healthy human development. These organic compounds cannot be produced by the human body and therefore need to be obtained through food. The Omega-3 fatty acids are most notably known for their benefits in heart health. They are good for your joints, reduce morning stiffness in subjects with rheumatoid arthritis. Omega-3 acids boost brain power and help to fight against depression. You can read more about these benefits on the Seashare’s website and you will also find links to the studies there.

Tip 2!

Many people prefer to acquire their Omega-3 fatty acids with capsules. It’s an option of course. But the actual consumption of seafood is the best Omega-3 source.
