Nutritional values

Whether as party finger food, an appetizer, or a small snack, the shrimp provides a large portion of iodine, which helps the thyroid gland produce hormones for a well-functioning energy balance.

 

Only use refined vegetable oil for frying. It has a higher smoke point than cold-pressed oil and can be heated up to 400 °F without any adverse effects on health.
