Lemon Butter Baked Shrimp
Shrimp is one of the most common types of shellfish.
It is highly nutritious and provides large amounts of some nutrients, such as iodine, which are not abundant in many other foods.
Shrimp often get a bad reputation due to their high cholesterol content.
A 3-ounce (85-gram) serving contains 161 mg of cholesterol.
Many people fear foods that are high in cholesterol due to the belief that they increase blood cholesterol and lead to heart disease.
However, research shows that this may not be the case for most people, as only a quarter of the population is sensitive to dietary cholesterol. For the rest, dietary cholesterol may have little effect on cholesterol levels.
This is because most of the cholesterol in your blood is produced by your liver, and when you eat foods that are high in cholesterol, your liver produces less.
Due to the high demand for shrimp in the United States, it is often imported from other countries.
Between 75 and 80% of the seafood eaten in the United States is imported from other countries, such as Thailand, China, Canada, Indonesia, and Vietnam.
Although this helps increase access to shrimp, most imported shrimp are farm-raised, which means they are grown in artificial tanks submerged in water bodies.
