Are you shrimp lover but not sure if the shellfish is the smartest seafood choice? Its time to dispel the biggest myths about these tiny (and tasty) crustaceans.
Shrimp are high in calories.
Shrimp are a wonderfully lean source of protein. Three ounces of cooked shrimp contain 18 grams of protein for less than 90 calories.
You cant eat shrimp if youre watching your cholesterol.
Three ounces of cooked shrimp have 166 milligrams of cholesterol, or slightly more than half of the daily recommendation. But shrimp contain very little saturated fat, the type of fat that wreaks havoc on blood cholesterol levels. Theres also some research to support the idea that the type of cholesterol found in shrimp may have some favorable benefits on cholesterol levels.
Shrimp dont contain any Omega-3 fats.
Avoid all farm-raised shrimp.
Some cool running water is all you need for quick defrosting. Place shrimp in a colander and turn on the sink; those babies will be ready to cook in minutes.
