Since shrimp is high in moisture (takes longer to get browned & flavorful) and, also, delicate, grilling is tricky. Tips: use freshest, high temps, spoon together on skewer & sprinkle with sugar.

Shrimp are a nutrient dense food meaning you get a lot of nutrition for not a lot of calories. They are protein-rich, low in saturated fat and are a good source of selenium, vitamin B12, phosphorous, copper, choline and iodine. Yes, they are high in cholesterol, but research has shown that saturated fat affects your cholesterol level, not dietary cholesterol.
