While shrimp may be small in size they are certainly big on appeal as a rich source of seafood and crisp and juicy when fried with a little garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper.
The deliciously clean and crisp tasting crustaceans can be served hot or cold and are the most popular seafood throughout the United States of America. Shrimp are versatile and thus can be enjoyed fresh and frozen throughout the year.
Shrimp are swimmers rather than crawlers as opposed to lobsters. They use the little things called swimmerets on their abdomens in order to swim forward and their tail moves backward. In fact the flesh of raw shrimp is low in calories and saturated fat. Shrimp have also emerged as a very good source of vitamin D and rich in vitamin B12.
