Curt and I enjoy sharing the things we have found to be the best. Both of us had pretty much stopped eating fish because the flavor was always off and the texture was always too soft and sometimes even mushy – yuck! As of five years ago that came to a screeching halt when I discovered, by accident, Vital Choice Seafood & Organics.
First, I have to tell you that I am so picky about the quality of my food that if it doesn’t taste and smell like I just went out and gathered it myself, I would rather not eat it.
One of our favorite picks at Vital Choice Seafood & Organics is what they call a “sampler” and the one we buy most often is called “Wild Pacific Seafood Medley” (see image). What we enjoy most about this sampler is the assortment of fish it contains, whoever put this pack together was brilliant. The portions are just right and the variety is sure to please. Plus, there is a substantial savings versus the cost of buying the items separately!
The Wild Pacific Seafood Medley Contains:
- Sockeye Salmon – 6 oz skinless/boneless portion
- King Salmon – 6 oz skinless/boneless portion
- Silver Salmon – 6 oz skin-on/boneless portion
- Sockeye Salmon Burger – 4 oz patty
- Hot-Smoked Sockeye – 6 oz skin-on/boneless portion
- Pacific Albacore Tuna – 6 oz of small, skinless/boneless medallions
- Alaska Halibut – 6 oz skinless/boneless portion
- Oven-Ready Smoked Sablefish – 4 oz skin-on/boneless portion
- Wild Organic Blueberries – 1 lb bag (approx. 3.5 cups)
- Organic Marinade Mix – 0.75 oz sample pack
The addition of the Organic Wild Blueberries is a real treat too. To this day, I have not found wild blueberries that taste like the ones I used to gather myself on a remote mountaintop in PA. Well, I should say, I had never found any until I opened my first purchase of this sampler; I couldn’t believe it, these small berries tasted exactly like the ones I gathered myself at the peak of ripeness. The same rich blueberry flavor bursting in my mouth was simply amazing! Whether eaten straight from the bag or tossed in a smoothie, they are perfect.
Vital Choice Seafood & Organics is also recommended by leading doctors, be sure to check out the “Doctor’s Favorites” packs they have put together too: Christiane Northrup, Dr. Lipman, Dr. Perricone, Dr. Jonny Bowden, Dr. Crinnion, and Andrew Weil, MD.
