Fish can be prepared in a variety of ways and tastes good. On top of that, it’s also very healthy. Nutritionists recommend eating fish as it contains especially easily digestible fish protein that our body requires to build muscle. The omega 3 fatty acids found in fish protect against inflammation, boost the immune system and support brain function.
Whether fried, steamed, grilled or even just raw – fish can be prepared in a range of ways. The fish served at Viennese fish restaurants not only comes from the sea, but also mainly from Austria rivers and lakes.
