Shrimps are an exceptional nutritious food especially if they are wild shrimps harvested from clean cold water sources. They are good sources of protein, vitamin B12, healthy fat (including omega-3), tryptophan (an essential amino acid), selenium and astaxanthin (an antioxidant).

The healthy fat and protein content in shrimp salads promotes satiety, so you eat less. It causes less insulin secretion too. As such shrimp meals can support weight loss.

Here are 3 crunchilicious shrimp salad recipes that can help support weight loss
