Note: I have a friend who LOVES shrimp. She likes it so much that she will try new and odd dishes simply because it contains shrimp. She's not alone, shrimp is the second most popular seafood in the United States. Canned tuna is the number one choice. Shrimp recipes are varied and can be appetizers, pasta, or main courses. Shrimp are an excellent source of protein while being exceptionally low in saturated fat and calories. A four ounce serving of shrimp has 28.2% of the recommended daily value of vitamin B12. Shrimp are also an excellent source of selenium, providing 64.2% of the recommended daily value for this trace mineral in a 4 ounce serving.
