For seafood lovers, a vacation to the Gulf Shores is the perfect time to indulge in all that delicious bounty of the sea. With up to 32 miles of sugar-white sand and crystal-clear beaches, such closeness to the water ensures fresh offerings when you dine in a Gulf Shore restaurant.
One of the most popular seafood in the area is shrimp, and local cooks have found countless ways to serve up this shelled favorite for diners of all ages.
A Healthy Option
Many diners are ambivalent about shrimp, but fact is, it’s not only tasty but it also comes with a host of health benefits. Weight watchers, for instance, would be pleased to know that a dozen medium shrimp clocks in at less than 85 calories with 7 calories each on average. This makes it a great choice for those keeping a close eye on their calorie intake.
