Shrimp is low in calories, yet rich in nutrients. The antioxidants in shrimp are good for your health. The antioxidant astaxanthin helps to prevent wrinkles and lessens sun damage. Maybe this is why those who live in the Mediterranean have such healthy skin.

Shrimp also has plenty of selenium which is a powerful antioxidant that may reduce the risk of certain cancers and protect against heart disease.

  • 2 tbsp tamari (gluten free soy sauce)
