EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Shrimp are an excellent source of low-fat protein. While shrimp are higher in cholesterol than some seafood, when balanced with other foods that are low in cholesterol they can be part of a heart healthy eating plan.

If entertaining, use an Asian short-grain rice. Serve fortune cookies and green tea sorbet for desserts.
