Bonefish Grill’s Bang Bang Shrimp is one of my favorites. When I started keto, I ditched this dish because the sauce is filled with sugar. Instead of getting rid of this dish from my life forever, I decided to remake it. Using coconut flour, a crunchy cheese snack and a recipe for Easy Keto-friendly, Low Carb Sweet Chili Sauce, my keto dreams came true! This recipe is on the table in 20 minutes.
Keto Orange Shrimp – Dr. Davinah’s Eats
Keto Chinese Orange Peel Shrimp is my remake to the classic sweet and spicy orange peel shrimp or chicken recipe that you can pick up at P.F. Chang’s. Using keto-friendly sweeteners and orange extract instead of orange juice, this is easily one of my favorite keto Chinese takeout recipes to make at home.
Keto Shrimp Tacos – Dr. Davinah’s Eats
Air Fried Shrimp – Dr. Davinah’s Eats
Air Fryer Shrimp is one of my favorite keto air fryer recipes. It only takes a few minutes to make and can be modified for a lot of flavor combos like Bang Bang Shrimp and Coconut Air Fried Shrimp. This is great as part of a salad or as a keto appetizer.
Easy Cast Iron Whole30 Shrimp – Dr. Davinah’s Eats
These Easy Cast Iron Whole30 Shrimp are one of the easiest low-carb shrimp recipes that you can find! With only 3 ingredients and one-pan, these are the perfect way to have a quick, shrimp meal. I love pairing these with my cilantro-lime rice or marinated boneless New York Strip Steak. They also taste great topped with chimichurri sauce.
Grilled Chili Lime Shrimp Kabobs – Simply So Healthy
These Shrimp Kabobs are spicy and sweet. They’re separated by red onions and green bell peppers. They’re awesome for those who love to grill in winter or for those wanting to add a paleo or low carb option to the BBQ menu. These take 10 minutes to cook, but will require some time to marinate!
Southern Shrimp and Cauliflower Grits -Dr. Davinah’s Eats
Shrimp and Grits is the “comfortest” of comfort foods. This keto remake combines bacon, chorizo, shrimp and cauliflower rice to give you all the flavor without the carbs or grains. This recipe requires a bit of prep, but there’s enough for leftovers, making this the perfect 2-day meal.
Creamy Shrimp Primavera – Joy Filled Eats
This dish is ready to eat in 30 minutes. It’s creamy & cheesy and only has 8 ingredients. This would be perfect for a weeknight family meal or a comfort food special occasion.
Low Carb General Tso’s Shrimp and Broccoli – Better than Bread Keto
If you’re like me then you love Chinese Take-out. This General Tso Shrimp dish is sure to cure your take-out cravings. Logan from Better Than Bread Keto recreated General Tso sauce with no-sugar-added ketchup, Lakanto, and some other common pantry ingredients. This dish will be on the table in 25 minutes.
Keto Shrimp Scampi – Dr. Davinah’s Eats
Shrimp Scampi is one of those dishes that easily becomes keto-friendly, low carb and perfect for Whole30. However, there are some sneaky ways that sugar and carbs can overtake the dish. This recipe is easy, garlicky, buttery, and delicious! It includes tips for wine selection (and substitutions) as well as recommendations for no sugar added broths. This recipe takes 15 minutes to complete. It pairs perfectly with Cauliflower Risotto and is featured as one part in The Ultimate Keto Surf and Turf.
Cilantro Lime Air Fryer Shrimp Skewers – Recipes from a Pantry
I love the idea of making seafood in an air fryer. These Cilantro Lime Air Fryer Shrimp Skewers are perfect for seafood lovers who don’t want to bother with a grill. They’re perfect for keto, but also those looking for a Whole30 Shrimp recipe. These are all set in 13 minutes. So, they’re included on my list of 20+ easy keto recipes for a game day or a crowd!
Shrimp Cauliflower Fried Rice with Edamame – Ketofy.Me
Cauliflower Fried Rice is one of my favorite side dishes! LeLe from Ketofy.me made this dish a meal by adding shrimp and edamame. After a little bit of prep, this dish is ready to eat in 35 minutes.
Indian Shrimp Curry (Keto & Whole30) – Dr. Davinah’s Eats
On a cold day, this is a recipe that will definitely warm you up. Filled with Fresno peppers, warm Indian spices, and coconut milk, this dish is a real pleaser. If you’re not a fan of spicy food, then you can easily substitute the hot peppers for bell peppers.
Cajun Shrimp Salad – Babaganosh
This Cajun Shrimp Salad includes bacon and a homemade cilantro lime dressing. Do I even have to say more?! Each layer of this dish is packed with flavor. It’s ready in 20 minutes and is probably one of the easiest and tastiest ways to get in all of your veggies.
