WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE

When we think of protein, we tend to think of meat or eggs.  We often overlook these little crustaceans, which are a great source of lean protein, not to mention, vitamin B12, vitamin D, iron and selenium.  A wonderfully nutrient dense food, shrimp is also extremely low in fat and in calories.  And did we mention omega-3 fatty acids?  That’s right. Shrimp, like other shellfish is a naturally great source of omega-3 without the high levels of mercury that bigger fish may contain.  If you’re bored of the usual chicken kebab, try shrimp kebabs this summer on the BBQ instead.  Kids love these bite sized little suckers, too!
