Nutritional values

Shrimp is not only low in fat but it contains a lot of high-quality protein! Additionally, shrimp is a good source of iodine, which is important for a well-functioning thyroid gland, and phosphorous, which is important for healthy bones and teeth!

Peppers and mushrooms add color to this recipe and provide both satiating fiber and an extra portion of vitamins B and C.
