Shrimp with Tumeric and Kaffir lime

Here is a recipe that succeeds every time! It is simple and made with simple, natural ingredients.

Shrimp are crustaceans that can be found in both seas and fresh waters. They are often served for festive meals. Gray or pink, shrimp are the most consumed shellfish in the world. They are eaten raw or cooked and are quite easy to cook.

Rich in protein, shrimp have a low calorie intake, while promoting satiety. They are also an important source of omega-3 of marine origin, antioxidant and coenzyme Q10 which contribute to cardiovascular health.

Shrimp also contain:

  • phosphorus which participates in the growth and regeneration of tissues, while maintaining normal blood pH;

  • selenium which works with antioxidant enzymes. Consuming 100g of shrimp meets almost 70% of our daily selenium needs;

  • magnesium which contributes, among other things, to bone development and the function of the immune system;

  • copper which is necessary for the formation of hemoglobin and collagen;

  • iron which is an important mineral in the formation of red blood cells.

And so many other trace elements that you could discover on the Passport Santé .
