For whatever reason, I have become a HUGE fan of shrimp. I never really felt that I craved certain foods, but lately, I feel like I'm craving shrimp. Not a bad thing necessarily, but when you can't find the nutrition information listed for a restaurant, it's a tad frustrating.
CME and I had dinner at Logan's Texas Roadhouse tonight. He had a craving for steak (which is really unusual for him - probably been at least a year since he's had one) and I've been craving shrimp for a couple of days now. It's hard to believe, but shrimp has definitely been on my brain. For someone who rarely ate any shellfish at all...it's what I WANT now. -shrug-
I ordered the Southwest Grilled Shrimp appetizer as my entree. It was a perfect choice, in my opinion. There were 6 shrimp on the skewer and I asked for them to add just a little extra seasoning. (I. like. flavor.) The avocado, corn, tomato and black bean "salsa" that it came with was good too. I didn't eat any of the tortilla chips. Anyway...I've tried to find the nutrition information since I've been home, but haven't been successful. I thought restaurants HAD to make the nutritional information known. I guess I could use the "Contact Us" form, but I want it at my fingertips! LoL The only thing I can compare it too to try to figure out nutritional information is Applebee's grilled shrimp skewer. (90 cals/14 g protein) Problem there is I don't know how many/how large of shrimp, etc. are included at Applebee's. Regardless, grilled shrimp, avocado and black beans all have protein and are low cal/low fat, so I'm going to continue to believe I made a good choice. It tasted yummy, for sure!
