Shrimp Health Benefits

So why shrimp you might ask. Well for starters I LOVE shrimp! Seafood in general is my favorite food, I could eat shrimp ceviche tostadas every week. But besides that, shrimp is so fast and easy to cook with.

Those little guys are jammed packed with health benefits too. They are a protein, vitamins D and B3, zinc, and iodine rich food (source).

Ok, this recipe is a little bit more hands on than simply throwing all your ingredients into the inner pot and forgetting about it. But it’s such an iconic flavorful meal, I had to include it in this list.

There is a little bit of chopping required and the use of the sauté mode to cook some of the ingredients for a couple of minutes before adding everything else and cooking at high pressure.

Even with the extra bit of cooking time and work this recipe requires, you should be able to have dinner on the table in under 40 minutes.
