A fish thimble soup made with seafood therapy cabot is one of the best ways to get the most out of a salmon meal, according to a new Australian study.
The researchers found that salmon soup, a staple in Australian cuisine, is a healthier and more nutritious dish than fish broth, and has more nutrients than fish rice.
“We know that fish soup is often made from fish but what’s really unique about this is it’s a fish broth that’s been modified by adding vitamins and minerals,” Dr David Anderson, an associate professor of nutrition at the University of New South Wales, told the ABC.
“The key here is that the fish has been modified in such a way that it’s much more nutritious and much more beneficial to health.”
In fact, a fish thumb is so nutritious that the study found that the amount of iron in the soup is similar to what people get from eating a fish liver.
The study also found that fish broth had an additional benefit, as the researchers found it was higher in antioxidants and fibre.
“You can’t get fish liver without a fish meal, and in fact it’s quite difficult to get fish broth without fish,” Dr Anderson said.
“It’s an important thing to keep in mind that fish is not just a food, it’s also a medicine.”
The study, which examined more than 3,000 people aged 18 and over in Western Australia, found that people who ate a fish or chicken meal three times a week had a significantly lower risk of developing kidney disease.
“This was more significant for those who ate fish twice a week,” Dr Andrew Worsley, a research associate at the Queensland University of Technology’s School of Nutritional Sciences, told ABC News.
“And we were able to see that the risk of kidney disease for people who were vegetarians was not much different.”
Dr Anderson said that the key to making a fish soup that was nutritious and effective was to use a variety of different types of fish, including mackerel, salmon, and king mackerell.
“If you’re going to have fish in your soup, you need to choose the type of fish that you can use and also the kind of salmon that you use, because the amount that you put in your fish is important,” he said.
Dr Anderson added that people with kidney disease should also look for a dish with more fibre.
He also recommended that people not consume more than 10 per cent of their daily intake of fish protein, which can lead to higher intake of fat.
“There’s no need to go overboard,” Dr Worsly said.
“I think people who are going to fish regularly in their diets are probably going to be fine.
But I’d suggest sticking to a diet of around 5 per cent fish protein.”
