Our chef at Sunrise of Beaconsfield, QC, has prepared this seafood dish for more than a decade and nearly all who taste it request to have it again.

After featuring it at a community event, it was universally agreed to be a new community favorite.

Shrimp is an excellent source of selenium, a powerful antioxidant. In fact, just one 4-ounce serving contains enough selenium to meet your daily-recommended dietary allowance. Even better, adequate consumption of this mineral can help prevent cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes, while helping to improve cognitive function.
