Protein. It accounts for 10 – 35% of a balanced diet. An important dietary component for growth and maintaining good health, protein is an invaluable asset for the body. Cells devour protein for maintenance and repair. It is imperative for the building of muscles – protein shakes aren’t popular simply because they’re tasty. It is a major component in the production of antibodies. Bones, nails, and hair rely on it; the former for strength, the latter for shine. It is necessary, it is important, it is everywhere – only, soon, it won’t be found in our oceans.
“Shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, sauté it. There’s shrimp kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. Pan-fried, deep-fried, stir-fried. There’s pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich. That – that’s about it.” – Bubba, Forrest Gump, 1994.
