Keto Shrimp Scampi Recipe

 

This shrimp scampi is transformed into a keto meal by using shirataki noodles. I like to double the amount of crushed red chiles for an extra kick! This will make 3 lunch-sized portions or 2 dinner-sized portions. Grate some Parmesan cheese on top before serving, if desired.

 

Prep: 10 mins
Cook: 25 mins
Total: 35 mins
Servings: 3
Yield: 3 servings

INGREDIENTS

 

DIRECTIONS

  • Cover shirataki noodles with water and bring to a boil. Boil for 5 minutes. Drain.

  • Return drained noodles to the saucepan and cook over medium heat to remove any excess moisture, 5 to 6 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

  • Drizzle olive oil into a large skillet over medium heat. Add shallot and stir until translucent, 2 to 3 minutes. Take care not to burn. Add garlic and red pepper flakes; stir for 1 minute. Add shrimp and cook for 2 to 3 minutes per side, taking care not to overcook. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Transfer shrimp to a bowl, reserving pan drippings in the skillet. Whisk lemon juice and white wine into the skillet. Add butter and cook until fully incorporated and sauce begins to thicken slightly, 3 to 4 minutes.

  • Return shrimp to the skillet. Add noodles. Sprinkle with parsley and toss to combine.

Simple Keto Zucchini Hash

 

This recipe makes an amazing side dish. Flavorful and high in healthy fat, it is a great complement to a meat or other high-protein main dish. If you like the flavors of zucchini and chili powder and miss the texture of mashed potatoes, try this one.

Prep: 10 mins
Cook: 20 mins
Total: 30 mins
Servings: 4
Yield: 4 servings

INGREDIENTS

 

 

DIRECTIONS

  • Combine zucchini with coconut oil and butter in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add Parmesan cheese, chili powder, salt, and cayenne pepper. Stir until cheese melts.

  • Reduce heat to low and add eggs; stir quickly until fully mixed in. Increase heat back to medium and cook, stirring and flipping occasionally, until edges of the hash are lightly browned, about 15 minutes.

     

Cook’s Note:

Himalayan pink salt also works well in this.

Keto Taco Shells Recipe

Keto

 

Make these super-easy spinach taco shells with just five ingredients. Mexican gets the healthy green light!

 

INGREDIENTS

  • 60g (2 cups, firmly packed) baby spinach leaves
  • 2 eggs
  • 40g (1/3 cup) almond meal
  • 2 teaspoons psyllium husk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

 

METHOD

  • Step 1
    Preheat oven to 180C/160C fan forced. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
  • Step 2
    Place the spinach in a heatproof bowl. Pour over boiling water to cover. Set aside for 5 minutes to blanch. Drain, squeezing out extra liquid.
  • Step 3
    Transfer the spinach to the bowl of a food processor. Add the eggs, almond meal, psyllium husk and salt. Process until smooth. Place one 1/4 of the mixture onto one of the prepared trays. Use a cranked spatula to spread to make a 15cm circle.
  • Step 4
    Repeat with the remaining mixture to make 4 circles. Bake for 10 minutes or until set. Use a spatula to transfer the circles between the gaps of an upturned non-stick muffin pan to create a taco shape. Set aside to cool slightly. Bake for a further 10 minutes to dry out.
  • Step 5
    Fill with your favourite taco ingredients (see notes).

NOTES

Fill taco shells with smoked chicken, avocado, onion, sour cream, tomato, coriander and chipotle in adobo sauce.
