The foods we choose to feed our children are a major component of their growth and development. There is one food that is highly recommended for children and women pregnant or looking to become pregnant and it’s fish. Children and women who are pregnant are encouraged to eat 8-12 ounces of fish a week to help with infant and child growth. But high levels of mercury in the fish we eat can have damaging health defects on growth and brain development. Safe Catch, a new brand of tuna fish is setting new standards for the tuna industry. Safe Catch tests every fish for mercury levels before purchase, their mercury level is 90% lower than the FDA’s, and there is five times the Omega 3s compared to leading brands.
Unlike some other canned tuna, Safe Catch raw packs hand-cut fish, then they cook-in-can to seal in all the nutrients. The can linings are free of BPA, and there are no fillers or additives. What is all boils down to is good ole' tuna in a can. It's both tested and fresh.
On a personal level, I tend to consume tuna once a month. Using Safe Catch recently, I cooked up some tuna patties for the family. Upon opening Safe Catch, I noticed the tuna looked very fresh and didn't seem to be packed with a bunch of extra additives. The cans didn't require a can opener; each had a pull tab. Safe Catch Wild Albacore Tuna and Wild Skipjack Tuna are more expensive than what you'd normally pay for tuna at the grocery store, but I was very satisfied with the freshness and flavors of Safe Catch. I'm also pleased to know they work strict standards to deliver great tuna.
3 cans Safe Catch tuna, drained
2 Tbs. lemon juice
1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
dash of pepper
Mix all ingredients together well in large bowl. Shape into patties.
In a lightly oiled pan, cook one side for three minutes over medium heat. Then flip over and cook for another three minutes.
