The Benefits of Mackerel

Have you ever tried the mackerel sushi at I Love Sushi’s Seattle restaurant? The saba, the aji, and the sawara, each of these is a great choice for the mackerel fan. And not only is it delicious, it also represents one of the healthier kinds of fish you can find.

The first thing to know about mackerel is that it ranks among the “fatty” fish, which means that it contains more of the nutritious omega-3 fatty acids than the average fish does. It also serves as a rich source of folate, niacin, choline, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin E, vitamin K, and vitamin B12. Additionally, it is a good source of protein, providing twenty-one grams in a single three-ounce serving. Finally, it contains calcium, potassium, selenium, and magnesium, all of which are valuable for supporting proper bodily function. Come and dig into some mackerel at I Love Sushi today!
