Some people have a song of the summer. We have a food of the summer.
This summer it’s Fire-Roasted Shrimp. Bold, zesty, not to mention healthy, shrimp is the ideal protein for every meal this summer.
Shrimp has a myriad of benefits for your health. It’s high in protein and low in carbs, making it the perfect food if you’re watching your weight or trying to pack on some muscle. All that protein will help you keep active too since it is great fuel for your summertime exercise, activities, and adventures.
Shrimp is also packed with nutrients like vitamin D, vitamin B3, and zinc. Zinc in particular has been linked to increased circulation of leptin, an important hormone for regulating your body’s energy expenditure, fat storage, and appetite.

Shrimp has also been lauded as a beauty food, containing nutrients and antioxidants that slow premature aging and help with the production of healthy hair and skin cells. [Source] So get ready to strut your stuff on the beach this summer, because shrimp will have you looking and feeling your best.
So eating shrimp helps your health and your beauty. But let’s face it, the best thing about shrimp is probably how delicious it is! Finally, a healthy food that actually tastes good! QDOBA has embraced this flavor-packed, nutrient-filled, wonder food by introducing Fire-Roasted Shrimp to the menu – for a limited time only.
Combining citrus and Chile pepper flavors, Fire-Roasted Shrimp offers a zesty twist to QDOBA’s signature flavors. And there are two other new flavors at QDOBA that are the perfect complements to Fire-Roasted Shrimp: sweet Pineapple Pico and freshly-made Chimichurri Sauce.
