Prawntastic….4 hours to walk off pizza calories…warning seems to work….

Prawn run at around 1 calorie per gram. 100g portion = 100 calories.

Walk off a portion of prawn in 20 minutes…and a bit more for the sauce.

Definitely a healthy compact protein option…….

Without shrimp one would not have whales.

Looking forward to developing further and seeing how shrimp performs in the protein space. You may be surprised.
