It’s time to fire up the grill! Using a grill to cook your foods is usually a healthier option compared to other ways of cooking. I love to use the grill because it’s so easy (and it doesn’t make my kitchen dirty). Grilled Shrimp is one of my favorite foods to grill because a) it’s healthy and b) there is so many ways to cook it! You can eat anything from Indian inspired grilled shrimp to Grilled Shrimp Gumbo Salad and have completely different tastes.
Grilling instead of breading and baking or frying shrimp is a good way to keep from adding extra fat and calories to this nutritious food. Shrimp is widely thought of as a high-cholesterol food and at 179 mg of cholesterol per 3 oz serving, it certainly fits the profile. However, the cholesterol in shrimp is counteracted by other healthy fats it contains and by its low level of saturated fats. Just remember, moderation is key!
