About the product
We’ve marinated juicy Spanish mackerel in a sweet soy-citrus marinade and cooked it sous-vide (in a vacuum-sealed bag) to lock in those flavors. As a garnish, the yuzu peel is intended to perfume the dish when it is reheated. The mackerel is cut into small, easy-to-eat pieces, and its bones have been removed, so it is safe to serve to elderly diners.
Fish are an excellent lean source of protein in general, but oily fish such as mackerel are also rich in the omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA. These essential fatty acids reduce inflammation, promote healthy joints and brain function, and lower the risk of heart disease. Mackerel also contains a significant amount of vitamin D, an essential nutrient for strong and healthy bones, and an extraordinary amount of vitamin B12—in fact, the amount of mackerel in this package contains nearly twice the recommended daily intake!
Yuzu (citron) is a fruit with a very strong lemony aroma and a tart flavor somewhere between that of a grapefruit and an orange. In addition to being rich in vitamin C like other members of the citrus family, yuzu’s skin also contains naringenin, which has been shown to repair DNA cells that have suffered oxidative damage, and its pith contains hesperidin, which may have antioxidant properties.
Finally, sous-vide cooking is healthier than other methods, especially when it comes to cooking meats. Because the vacuum-sealed bag keeps the proteins from being exposed directly to a hot surface like a pan or grill, HCAs (heterocyclic amines) and other carcinogenic compounds are not produced. In addition, the bag seals in all the flavor and nutrients of the meat and marinade, which might otherwise be partially lost in the surrounding water or air.
