Dinner On The Deck With Wild American Shrimp
(NAPSA) - When it comes to finding the most flavorful shrimp, food lovers say wild is wonderful.
Packed with flavor, fresh wild shrimp is also a high-protein, low-carb choice. A good source of cardio-protective omega-3 fatty acids, a three-ounce serving supplies nearly 18 grams of protein, almost a third of the adult daily requirement. A serving has just 84 calories, less than one gram of fat and less than one gram of carbohydrates.
For grilling, jumbo shrimp work best, and cook in about three to five minutes. They should be cooked just until pink and firm or they will get rubbery. Start with the freshest shrimp, with shiny shells and meat that feels firm against the shell. Buy shrimp the day you grill it and keep it chilled.
Some quick tips for prepping the grill:
