A braised cod and smoked fish mix seafood recipe you really should try

Taking nutritional value into account, it’s safe to say that we need to consume seafood regularly. Seafood serves as a rich source of, among other essential nutrients, omega-3 fatty acids.

These acids have been shown to provide lots of amazing health benefits. These include; helping to prevent stroke and heart disease, helping to control rheumatoid arthritis, eczema, lupus, and protecting against cancer.

As such, experts recommend eating seafood, at least, twice per week (for both adults and children). Now that you understand the amazing health benefits that come with consuming seafood regularly, you may be trying to think of some fabulous recipe ideas to try. If that’s right, I have an awesome recipe to share with you so that you can get started.  The recipe entails braised cod, which is a very delicious sea fish, as the main ingredient. 

As a matter of fact, the recipe is relatively popular on New York restaurant menus, where it comes with the necessary ingredients as a full meal kit. Speaking of Sun Basket, did you know that their meal kits are almost totally organic as they deliver 99.9% organic ingredients?

Yes, it’s only when the meal kit delivery service cannot find an organic ingredient or an alternative that it will resort to a non-organic ingredient. It’s due to the organic and GMO-free meal kits that the company has been listed as one of the healthiest meal kit providers.

On the other hand, Seamless, which besides Home Chef, is one of the biggest competitors of Sun Basket, isn’t big on organic food even though they offer a little bit of that. Instead, the company concentrates on what product looks and tastes best. You can check them out too just to weigh your options well before making a subscription (on the example of New York delivery) with a meal kit provider.

Make sure you read the quick comparison to discover the similarities and crucial differences between those meal kit rivals. Once you have the info, you can compare and contrast the two companies with Home Chef to determine a suitable option.
