Nutritional Value of Popcorn Shrimp
Shrimp by themselves are low in calories and fat. Of course, adding the breading to popcorn shrimp -- which are small shrimp -- changes the nutritional value. They still, however, contain 9 grams of protein per serving.
To make this popcorn shrimp as healthy as possible when frying, use a heart-healthy oil, such as olive oil or sunflower oil, rather than butter, lard or palm oil. Avoid overheating the oil, which will cause the shrimp to absorb more of it.
An even healthier preparation is to bake them in the oven, rather than frying.
