The other day we had minted shrimp for lunch. These are Jacksonville Florida white shrimp, locals call them Jacksonville whites. Shrimp is high in calcium, iodine and protein but low in food energy. Shrimp is high in cholesterol, however consumption is considered healthy for the circulatory system because the lack of saturated fat improves the ratio of LDL to HDL cholesterol and lowers triglycerides.
I sauteed one shallot and some fresh ginger in butter and then when they were softened I added the butterflied shrimp. While the shrimp were cooking I sprinkled on a generous amount of dried thyme and mint flakes. I served them on my rectangular plates with some fresh tomatoes. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
