Here at Sizzlefish, our purpose is to bring you the healthiest, freshest seafood you can find. Our wild-caught salmon is the perfect example of this. Our salmon fillets are some of the highest in omega-3 levels found on the market. Did you know that omega-3 fatty acids are known to improve heart function, lower blood pressure and improve HDL levels? Pretty amazing, right? Not only do you get a healthy dose of omega-3’s from our salmon, but these delicious fillets provide antioxidants such as taurine and heart-healthy vitamin B12. They also contain selenium (shown to promote healthy brain function and support the immune system) and packed with protein which aides in muscle growth. Pretty perfect, right?
