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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
