SHRIMP CONGA

Florida shrimp is naturally low in carbohydrates, saturated and other fats and calories, making it an ideal choice for a low-carb and healthy lifestyle. The product is also recommended for its omega-3 fatty acid, which medical research shows reduces the risk of heart disease. In addition to the health benefits, Florida shrimp also has a sweet distinct flavor sure to please the most discriminating palette.

Yield: approximately 30 hors d' oeuvres.
