Prawns are a good source of unsaturated fat, which makes up the majority of its fat content. Unsaturated fats can help improve your blood cholesterol levels when you eat them in place of saturated or trans fats. Prawns, like other fish and shellfish, are also a good source of omega-3 fatty acids — essential fatty acids your body does not produce. Omega-3s can reduce inflammation and your risk of heart disease, cancer, and arthritis, as well as help with brain function. While prawns are a low-fat food and contain many healthy fats, they are also rich in cholesterol.
