Nutrition of Chinese Salted Fish

Many people in southern China like to eat Chinese Salted Fish, which is a way to preserve fish meat. In order to avoid spoilage and changes in the fish, fishermen marinate the fish into Chinese Salted Fish, which can be preserved for a longer time. After that, Chinese Salted Fish gradually became a delicacy, it can increase appetite, but eating too much Chinese Salted Fish is not good for human health, so everyone should not eat too much.

Pickling Chinese Salted Fish requires a lot of salt, and Chinese Salted Fish will contain a lot of nitrite. Nitrite is harmful to the human body. If it is excessive, it will affect the metabolism of the human body, and it also has a certain carcinogenic effect. Therefore, we must not eat too much Chinese Salted Fish, and try to steam it when we eat it, which can reduce the content of nitrite in Chinese Salted Fish, and eat it with other vegetables, which can balance nutrition. I like to marinate Chinese Salted Fish with mackerel. Fish is rich in protein and trace elements, which are all nutrients that the human body needs. After the fish is cured into Chinese Salted Fish, these nutrients are retained, but the nitrite is increased.

To reduce the nitrite content, I suggest that you use the stewing method to heat the Chinese Salted Fish instead of frying, which can greatly reduce the nitrite content. After simmering the Chinese Salted Fish, pour out the fish soup and leave the fish meat, we can just eat the fish meat. In this way, the Chinese Salted Fish has a unique taste and reduces the nitrite content, making it healthier to eat.

How to eat Chinese Salted Fish?

The method I share is to steam Chinese Salted Fish. After the Chinese Salted Fish is made, store it in the refrigerator and take it out when eating. Then rinse the Chinese Salted Fish with water, then put the Chinese Salted Fish into the steamer and steam for 20 minutes. Pour off the water and leave behind the fish, which can be eaten with rice. Chinese Salted Fish can increase appetite, but it contains a lot of salt, so eat less. Eating too much Chinese Salted Fish will make you thirsty and will increase the burden on your kidneys.

Many people eat Chinese Salted Fish after stewing it. Remove the Chinese Salted Fish from the refrigerator, then add water to a pot and bring to a boil. Boil the Chinese Salted Fish in boiling water for 5 minutes, and cook over low heat. Then pour out the fish soup and leave the fish meat, so the Chinese Salted Fish tastes lighter, has a more unique taste, and is rich in nutrients. Many people like to eat it this way.

Some people also use Chinese Salted Fish to stir-fry dishes, such as Chinese Salted Fish and eggplant. Boil the eggplant in boiling water for 5 minutes, then put it into a wok with the Chinese Salted Fish, stir fry it over a low heat, add a moderate amount of hot water and simmer for 10 minutes, which can reduce the nitrite in the Chinese Salted Fish and increase the taste of the eggplant.

Can pregnant women eat Chinese Salted Fish?

Chinese Salted Fish itself is rich in nutrients, but its nitrite content is very high, so pregnant women can’t eat more. You can eat 1 piece of Chinese Salted Fish a week. Fetal development during pregnancy requires more nutrition. At this time, pregnant women are relatively fragile, and try not to eat foods with high nitrite content. Chinese Salted Fish contains a lot of salt. Excessive intake of salt by pregnant women can easily cause blood pressure to rise, which is not good for the health of mothers and fetuses.
