It is so important that you keep your body healthy and active. If you don’t, you may have problems in the future and experience low energy. It is vital that you exercise or stay active in some way on a daily basis, especially if you do not eat well. If you feel sluggish or sick a lot due to your unhealthy habits, you should contact Intelligent Gourmet to help you with a meal plan and to talk to you about eating healthier. Our vegetarian restaurant in Tampa can guide you to a healthier lifestyle.


Benefits Of Eating Healthy

There are plenty of benefits to eating healthy. There is a huge misconception that all healthy foods taste bad but Intelligent gourmet offers healthy options that are good for you and delicious! Some of the benefits you may reap from eating healthy include:

  • Weight loss- Junk food has lots of calories so if you are able to purchase fruit and vegetables to replace the high fat and high calorie foods you are eating, you will not go over your calorie range for the day.
  • Blood sugar- Sugary foods cause spikes in your blood sugar and although your body can handle some of these spikes, if you have too many, it can lead to Diabetes. Complex carbohydrates help to regulate your blood sugar.
  • Decreased risk of heart disease- Eating tons of fatty foods can cause plaque buildup in your arteries which puts you at high risk for heart disease and heart attacks. Eating fats in moderation is okay and there are even some such as fish and nuts that protect your heart.
  • Decreased risk of cancer- Fruits and vegetables have antioxidants which helps prevent cancers. Eating healthier can be a smooth transition at our vegetarian restaurant in Tampa.

Crustaceans, shrimp, mixed species, raw                             28 medium shrimp

Garlic, raw                                                                                       1 clove

Tony Chachere’s Original Creole Seasoning                        1 tsp

Spices, pepper, black                                                                  ½ tsp (grounded)

Panko Crumbs                                                                               ¼ cup

Cheese, parmesan, shredded                                                   2 tbsp

Kerrygold Irish Butter (Unsalted)                                              1 tbsp


Preparation Instructions

PREP TIME DOES NOT INCLUDE THE 30 MINUTES OF MARINADE NOR PEELING OF THE SHRIMP. I’ve used both fresh and thawed pre-peeled shrimp, the choice is your’s.


Put the shrimp, garlic, olive oil, salt, pepper, and creole seasoning into a Ziploc bag. Gently flip the bag in all directions until the shrimp is well coated. Place into the refrigerator for 30 minutes to 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 475 degrees. Add in the breadcrumbs and Parmesan to the bag and gently turn to coat.

Arrange shrimp in single layer in ungreased 8×8 baking pan so that they’re not touching. Melt a 1 tablespoon of grass fed butter like Kerrygold, pour over the shrimp.


Broil for approximately 10 minutes until done. Serve immediately. Garnish with lemon wedges if desired. (Lemon not included in nutritional info.)


CHEF NOTE: Here are some short cuts and brands we used , pre-peeled raw frozen shrimp (thawed), pre-minced jarred garlic, Emeril’s Bayou Blend creole, Pre­-shredded fresh Parmesan. Serve this dish over Zucchini Spiral, or you can shave the zucchini with a peeler if you do not have a spiralizer.
