Start the New year’s right with this Fresh Shrimp Salad. In just 30 minutes, you will have a perfect healthy main dish to serve over greens, eat with crackers or put on a sandwich. Four ounces of boiled or steamed shrimp contains just 112 calories. This serving provides nearly 24 g of protein and 1.2 g of fat–only 0.3 g of which is saturated. Shrimp contains no carbohydrates. Shrimp has been said to build strong bones, stabilize blood sugars, boost energy and fight depression. My three kids loved this recipe, and it’s perfect for dinner or lunchtime.

11/2 pound medium shrimp, peeled, deveined, cooked and tails removed

3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
3 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
