Shrimp and Fish Sandwich Ideas
Shrimp is one of those foods that most people don't associate with sandwiches. They are eaten as part of a fancy meal as boiled or fried butterfly shrimp. However, boiled or fried, they make lovely sandwiches. Fish also plays well with breads and rolls! Here are ideas for sixteen excellent shrimp and fish sandwiches.

Why should you use shrimp and fish in sandwiches? First, they taste great! The have omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Shrimp also contain selenium and copper. While they do contain cholesterol, shrimp that is cooked with moist heat, without oil, is naturally low in calories. Fish is also naturally low in calories, unless it is fried or sautéed in oil. Salmon and other fatty fish contain omega-3 fatty acids. In addition, salmon has significant amounts of selenium, Vitamins B-12, D, and B-6. Tuna also has an abundance of selenium, along with Vitamins B-3, B-12, and B-6. Since tuna is more likely to be polluted with mercury than some other fish, it should be eaten with caution by children and pregnant women. To avoid the pollution problems that can come from farmed fish and shrimp, buy wild-caught fish, whenever possible.

What purpose does selenium serve in human nutrition? First, you don't need a lot of it. However, it is a crucial mineral in assembling anti-oxidants that protect our cells from damage.
