Nutritional values

This delicious Mediterranean dish packs a nutritional punch. Spicy chili provides the secondary plant substance capsaicin, which promotes blood circulation, relieves pain, stimulates digestion, and helps protect the cells from free radicals.

Thanks to the shrimp, this dish is very rich in protein and provides plenty of iodine.
