Less than 30 Calories per Jumbo Shrimp

By | Featured | No Comments

Are you looking to eat better in 2017?

Many of us have gained a few pounds enjoying holidays with friends and family. We love our familes and we love to eat when we are together, and this is just fine. But now the jeans don’t fit like they used to.

Copano Blues shrimp are a good choice for heathly eating. Copano Blues shrimp have just 120 calories per 4 oz raw serving. That is less than 30 calories per extra jumbo shrimp, based on 16-20ct extra jumbo Copano Blues.

Copano Blues are an excellent source of protein, vitamin B12, and selenium. Per four oz serving:

Protein – 23 grams or 46% daily allowance

Vitamin B12 – 78% daily allowance

Selenium – 102% daily allowance

Go ahead, eat the shrimp, and enjoy healthy eating.

 

Executive Chef Ruffy Sulaiman Visits Copano Blues Farm

By | Featured | No Comments

Execitive chef of the Hilton Americas in Houston, Ruffy Sulaiman toured the Copano Blues shrimp farm recently. This was the first chance Chef Ruffy had to sample Copano Blues. His verdict? “Delicious”.

Chef Ruffy had never tried sashimi shrimp, because he does not have access to sashimi grade shrimp. Chef liked the raw sashimi Copano Blues even better than cooked. “The cooked shrimp are sweet, but they are even sweeter when raw”. Chef Ruffy was impressed with the firm texture of Copano Blues shrimp. “These are great shrimp”.

This was Chef Sulaiman’s first tour of a shrimp aquaculture facility. Chef was pleasantly surprised to learn about our great concern for animal health and that no animals are harmed by the farm. Unfortunately, we have spoiled him. Chef Ruffy will not find another shrimp farm of this caliber anywhere.

 

Giving Back

Copano Blues shrimp farm donated land, and allowed right of way access for a kayak launch on Copano Bay in South Texas. The boat launch encourages healthy lifestyles and low environmental impact. This is one way we give back to our community.
