    Low-cal shrimp, fresh veggies, and the kick of curry1 pound of peeled and deveined large shrimp – you can buy them this way. Or if you can, get fresh Matane shrimp from Quebec, or fresh small gulf shrimp – they are delicious too! Small shrimp are fabulous in salads, but make sure they ultra-fresh!
