We’ve been told that seafood is healthier than meat in terms of calories, but depending on how you cook your shrimp, that may not be true. The minuscule and innocent-looking popcorn shrimp are dipped in a flour and cornstarch batter then deep fried — nothing healthy about that. The shrimp can hardly be detected after you’ve eaten the oily batter. For a healthier holiday app, go natural and enjoy cooked shrimp. They are a good source of lean protein with virtually no fat and very little sodium. Dip them in a zesty cocktail sauce or toss into a salad or pasta.
