We hear a lot about people not wanting to consume too much shrimp, due to their cholesterol content. However, this does not necessarily mean that it negatively impacts your blood cholesterol, especially when consumed in moderation. Just like any food, you probably don’t want to have it every day, for every meal anyways.
This meal comes together super quickly, too! This recipe serves two people, however it’s super easy to scale it up for a whole family meal, or scale it down just for yourself.
