Fried Shrimps with Fruits
Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (USA) and the Training and Development Officer of Hong Kong Dietitians Association, Ms Sharon CHAN said, “This dish features several fresh fruits, which give a natural sweet taste and reduce the use of white sugar. Prepared with fresh tomatoes and chopped garlic, the homemade tomato sauce has an aromatic and intense flavour. As the whole dish is low in sodium but high in potassium, it can help keep blood pressure at a healthy level.”
