Nutritional values

The potatoes in this recipe help your body absorb the protein from the shrimp. Shrimp is a great source of iodine, the mineral that supports the healthy functioning of the thyroid gland. Sorrel also helps stimulate the appetite and purifies the blood.

When the season for sorrel is over, replace the tender leaves with arugula or spinach.
