Phil, of Stone Soup fame, has been looking for healthy and quick alternatives to chicken. He asked me to show him how to cook with shrimp, so we did a quick lesson yesterday. Here are the highlights:
Shrimp are Nutritious
- High in Omega-3 fatty acids (which have been found to have protective effects against heart disease, stroke and diabetes.)
- High in protein – 18 grams in only 3 ounces of shrimp.
- Low in fat and sodium with no carbohydrates (if cooked in water with no fat.)
