Shrimp is one of the most beloved seafood in the US. They are great as appetizers, in salads, pasta dishes, with grits, sauces, rice, or simply sautéed, baked, grilled, or (breaded) and fried.
Local chefs use them fresh or frozen to create delicious meals. From seafood dishes, pasta dishes, as pizza toppings, in paellas, with spicy Fra Diavolo sauce, to simple fried or grilled varieties.
This type of shellfish goes perfectly with Alfredo and Fra Diavolo sauce, in a protein-packed Caesar salad, or with few simple condiments and seasonings like butter, olive oil, and garlic.
Shrimp is low in calories and in food energy but is full of proteins. In a 3-ounce serving, there are 84 calories and 18 grams of protein. They consist of other beneficial nutrients such as selenium, vitamin B12, iron, zinc, magnesium, and more.
However, they have high levels of cholesterol, too (166mg in a 3-ounce serving). Nevertheless, shrimp is high in omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants which promote heart health. Altogether, this diet has positive health effects, as proved by various studies and research.
