Did you know that Shrimp is the number one consumed seafood in America? It can also add an elegant flair to holiday meals. It’s not the holidays without cakes and cookies, Menorahs and mistletoe, parades and parties, Santa and… SHRIMP!
From spreads to au gratins, shrimp is one of the most versatile items on your holiday table. A serving size of three ounces of shrimp delivers nearly 20 grams of protein and a healthy dose of B vitamins, iron, and omega-3s, with only 84 calories and less than one gram of fat (when cooked plain).
Hosts and hostesses across the country can celebrate the holidays entertaining with special shrimp dishes that are sure to bring the highest of compliments from dinner guests. The Shrimp Council sent the recipe below and promises even the “hostess with the mostess” will love the recipe requests she receives when serving the Champagne Shrimp and Angel Hair featured below!
