Shrimp Caesar salad is a protein filled salad. It is a very good choice for Pescatarians who consume fish as their major protein sauce. You only need a small amount of this small fish for additional flavors in any salad dressings or pasta.
Avoid adding some specific cooked ingredients and commercially made additives to your salad. Salad dressing is the main culprit .The additives may prevent you from getting all the health benefits of salad as they counteract all the goodness. They are usually full of processed fats as well as high fructose corn syrup .If possible; prepare a homemade salad dressing using healthy oil, herbs or lemon.
Another mistake to avoid is adding cooked or processed foods to a salad. Foods such as full-fat cheeses and salted or sweetened nuts do add flavor and texture to the salads. However, they bring in additional calories, extra sugar, and unhealthy fats. So, if you must use them, just add minimal quantity in order to enjoy the full nutritional potential of your salad.
Shrimp ideas vary from one person to the other depending on tastes and preference. In order to make a tasty shrimp dish, you must first buy fresh shrimp of good quality. Select those that smell of saltwater only. In case of any fishy smell, do not buy.
Fresh shrimp of good quality should be firm and still fill the shell even after thawing. Do not buy those that have black spots on their shells. Black spots are an indicator of the beginning of meat breakdown. You should also avoid shrimps with yellowing shells or those that feel gritty.
Shrimp is an excellent source of protein, vitamins, and minerals, such as calcium, phosphorus, and magnesium. All these nutrients can effectively help fight against bone degeneration. Zinc deficiency may result in loss of hair.
To properly peel your shrimp, you have to remove the shell before cooking if the shrimp will be served in hot liquid. If poaching shrimp for later use, or if grilling, leave the shell as it protects the meat. The shell has a good flavor which will be imparted to the shrimp if left on during cooking.
