Paul Piazza & Son Wild-Caught Gulf Shrimp: A Healthy and Delicious Alternative
According to SeafoodSource, shrimp are the most popular seafood in the U.S. Out of the total 16.1 pounds of seafood Americans consumed per capita in 2018, 4.6 pounds of that were shrimp alone – the highest on the list by far – meaning that the average American eats 4.6 pounds of shrimp every year!
Of course any shrimp lover will tell you that shrimp taste great, but many don’t realize they are also a healthier protein than many other alternatives. You can see a variety of benefits here on our Nutrition page. They are low in saturated fat and high in omega-3 fatty acids. In fact this article lists 8 benefits of omega-3’s, which include fighting depression and anxiety, improving eye health and promoting brain health.
The COVID-19 pandemic has left us all eating out less and cooking at home more. Depending on restocking schedules, sometimes healthy alternatives may not be in plain sight. Just remember to check the frozen food aisles – even when the beef, chicken and pork are cleared out, we are continuing to supply our retailers with stocks of our frozen shrimp.
With many of us working from home and making fewer trips to the grocery, you can make the most of our next trip by picking up some of our frozen shrimp, which will keep up to two years under the proper freezer temperatures.
With their deliciously distinct, naturally flavorful, and subtly sweet taste, our wild-caught shrimp are perfectly adapted for a variety of dishes – including with dozens of recipes available on our RECIPE PAGE.
