Sizzled Citrus Shrimp

Sizzled Citrus Shrimp

Sizzled Citrus Shrimp can be served as a main dish or as a tapa (appetizer).

This quick Spanish-inspired sauté is a lesson in simplicity. All shrimp really needs to dazzle is lots of garlic and a splash of lemon.
Shrimp and seaweed are great sources of iodine. You need iodine for a healthy thyroid, but avoid large amounts of iodine-rich choices like kelp.
Apples, pears, plums, and citrus fruits are abundant with pectin, which help with detoxifying the body of mercury – one of the most critical metals that have been connected to thyroid problems.
