Benefits of Dry-aging Fish

Just like aging a great piece of beef, aging fish helps intensify the flavor and improve the texture of the meat. As fish age, amino acid chains break down, and this process creates the rich, umami flavor that makes these dishes so appealing. Dry aging also improves the texture of the fish as it breaks down muscle fibers, making the fish more tender and giving it a unique, buttery texture. 

Fresh fish cannot compete with the depth of flavor and luxurious texture that dry-aged fish offers. Properly dry-aged fish can have a longer shelf life compared to fresh fish, as the controlled environment reduces moisture, which in turn slows down bacterial growth.

Not only does dry-aged fish elevate texture, taste, and aroma, but it also gives the finest health benefits. Dry-aged fishes improve digestibility as their muscle fibers are broken down during the process and it also helps the guts help. Its naturally enhanced flavors reduce the need for added seasonings such as salts and fats. Aging concentrates nutrients like omega-3s, vitamins D and B12, and minerals.
