Shrimp and citrus sauce


The shrimp and scallops are an excellent source of protein. And unlike meat and dairy products go to animal proteins hand in hand with the heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids. At the same time, the animals are an excellent source of iodine, which forms part of the body's metabolic hormone. The nutrient content varies a lot, depending on what you choose and go after the largest protein bomb; there is a clear difference between the two types of seafood. The prawns contain significantly more protein than the mussels. Therefore, they are the perfect choice if you want to slim you and put burning up, or if you want to accommodate muscle regeneration on top of hard training.
