We know that healthy cooking and eating are topics of keen interest for so many Marley Spooners and as well as making for a broader variety of delicious flavours for you to cook with at home, fish offers a healthy protein choice and is one of the best sources of Omega 3 fats you can find.
Every week, we have a minimum of two recipes on offer featuring one of our fish options. Salmon recipes are available weekly, featuring either Tassal Tasmanian salmon fillets or smoked salmon, alongside sustainably farmed white fish options of either basa or barramundi fillets.
When it comes to sourcing the most flavoursome, high-quality ingredients for our recipes, we work closely with trusted suppliers to pack your boxes with only the best. We’re proud to be partnering with Tassal and Clean Harvest to bring you a varied range of delicious, sustainably farmed fish. Read on to learn more about these supplier partners and their fantastic ingredients.
Salmon fillets and smoked salmon
When you see salmon fillets or smoked salmon in our recipes, these are sourced from the renowned, Tasmania-based Tassal.
Tassal produces responsibly farmed Tasmanian Atlantic salmon grown in the cool, clean waters of Tasmania. Dedicated to farming responsibly raised fish, they have global third-party certifications including from the Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) and Best Aquaculture Practice (BAP) to ensure sustainability and quality is maintained across their practices. All Tassal salmon products are independently assessed by these accreditors to ensure that Tassal salmon is raised sustainably and is socially responsible.
Tasmanian Atlantic salmon is a great source of Omega 3 fats; it contributes to heart health and is packed with beneficial nutrients, vitamins and minerals to support a healthy diet. Salmon is also a good source of protein, a nutrient our body needs for growth and development. A 100-gram portion of salmon provides roughly 42% of the recommended dietary intake (RDI) of protein for an Australian adult.
Versatile, delicious and so easy to cook, Tassal salmon fillets take to a range of different preparations, be it baking, grilling, pan-frying or steaming. It features in Marley Spoon recipes like Baked Salmon Niçoise with Grain Mustard Vinaigrette, and Turmeric-Coconut Salmon with Spiced Hash and Pickled Cucumber.
Tender yet rich, Tassal smoked salmon is smoked gently to create a well-balanced flavour that’s ideal for enjoying in thin, delicate slices. We feature it frequently in salads, pastas and grain bowls for quick dinner prep that delivers on maximum taste. Think 15-Minute Smoked Salmon Salad with Eggplant, Croutons & Basil Pesto, or Reduced-Carb Smoked Salmon with Fennel & Dill Salad.
Basa is a versatile white fish that is often used as an alternative to cod or haddock. It has a light texture with a moist flesh and mild fish flavour that makes it extremely versatile to cook with. Basa is low in calories, a good source of protein and is naturally low in fat and as a result, it often features in our Nutritious or Low-Calorie recipes.
Sourced from leading seafood suppliers De Costi, our basa fillets are sustainably farmed in Vietnam. You’ll find basa on our menu in a range of recipes styles, like Basa Laksa with Coconut, Bamboo Shoots and Lime, plus Fish Stir-Fry with Sesame Rice & Thai Basil.
Supplied by Global Seafoods – a third generation, Western Australian, family-owned company – Marley Spoon recipes feature Clean Harvest Barramundi. Vacuum packaged at peak freshness, Clean Harvest is a sustainably and responsibly farmed barramundi, raised in the pristine ocean waters of Van Phong Bay in Vietnam. The fish is instantly snap-frozen upon harvest to ensure it arrives to you at its highest quality and freshness.
Based on a sustainable model of aquaculture, Clean Harvest Barramundi uses state of the art aquaculture and traditional harvesting processes, allowing for eco-friendly production of fish of the highest quality. Passionate about quality and sustainability, the brand carries a number of certifications including from Best Aquaculture Practice (BAP) and Ocean Wise Seafood, its farms have also been accredited by the Aquaculture Stewardship Council, the only farmed barramundi to have received this recognition of their sustainable practices.
Clean Harvest Barramundi has an exceptional flavour and texture, with a notably higher Omega 3 content than other barramundi and a signature sweetness to its firm flesh that makes it ideally suited to grilling, baking and pan-frying.
You’ll find barramundi on our menu in recipes such as Low-Cal Pan-Seared Barramundi with Lemon, Broccoli & Burghul, or Barramundi and Smoky Chickpeas with Spinach and Cumin.
