  • Shrimp and Crab

    Are shrimp and crab acceptable as "fish" to get more Omega 3?

  • #2
    Acceptable? Sure. You'd have to eat a lot, compared to salmon - check out this list

    Salmon (4 oz serving) 2.09 grams Omega 3
    Shrimp (4 oz serving) 0.37 grams Omega 3
    Crab Meat (3 oz serving) 0.38 grams Omega 3

    Of course, salmon is really high on the list.

      You make a good point. I'm tired of tuna salad and about the only other fish I'll eat is shellfish. Love lobster but its pricey. I do take omega 3 fish oil gelcaps, hope that makes up for the absence of eating real fish. Thanks

        All fish and seafood are great. Go for the litte guys though - less mercury. Salmon, Tuna, Halibut, Mahi Mahi, etc.

        Go easy on Shark

        Shrimp and crab are great. They are full of protein - a win. The fat they have is pretty much all omega 3.

          According to Carlh's numbers above, I'd have to eat a lot of them to equal a 4 oz serving of Salmon. About the only other fish I eat is the heavily battered, deep fried "fish chunks" they serve at a local restaurant. More batter than fish. Crusty battered fried fish I might eat but we're doing low carb here and that's against the rules. I did read something about smashing up pork rinds and using them as batter. Thanks for help.

            It's hard for me to eat Shrimp (not a natural shellfish eater) without the cocktail sauce (which is 12g of carbs for the ones included inside the Wal-Mart packages that is enough to last a pound).

              I just melt butter in a cup and use that to dip them in. IT'S ONE OF MY FAVORITE MEALS!!!!!

                Works for me! Still, my primary reason was to eat enough at a meal so I didn't have to eat other fish. It appears shrimp doesn't have a huge amount of Omega 3.

                  Mmmmmmmmmm! I love shrimp, it's definitely in my top three favorite proteins! In fact tonight I'm making a Shrimp stirfry for supper!

                  I've made a more primal cocktail sauce. Horseradish, tomato paste, worchestershire and lemon. I love dipping shrimp in garlic butter, but my favorite is dipping it in hollandaise. SO GOOD!!!

                      Shrimp and crab are both high in zinc, so if you combine them with butter, you have some blocks to boost testosterone.

                          Can I just reheat cocktail (preshelled) shrimp? Would it be best to pan cook them (in butter\coconut oil) or boil them if they are already cooked?
