I like shrimp very much from my childhood in fried forms. I hope most of you also like it as I do. I tried this shrimp rice recipe a few months ago and it became one of our favorite rice varieties. Even Though shrimp/prawn had it's fame for bad cholesterol, it has some good useful health benefits. The pink color of shrimp is gained from the carotenoid it has, which keeps us from premature aging. Shrimp is very good source of anti-oxidants and omega-3 fatty acids. The antioxidants found in shrimp helps to maintain oil secreting glands on the hair, prevents hair loss and intensify the hair color. It contains selenium, which helps to reduce the risk of various types of cancer. We have seen so many benefits from shrimp which aids in our beauty, so you might have thoughts running to use more shrimp but be careful of it's cholesterol and have it just for taste. Now enjoy your shrimp rice..Smiley
