Shrimp have always been a treat for me. We didn’t eat them much growing up, but when we did, it would always be for celebrations, such as Chinese New Year.

Now that I've grown up, we indulge of shrimp once every two weeks. They are a good source of protein, low in fat and very tasty! I usually stir fry them with a little garlic and chili to serve with rice, or cook them with vegetables for noodles. Occasionally, I make these “meat”-balls with them. They taste a little like shrimp dumplings without the skin,
