keto shrimp recipes

This keto-friendly shrimp recipe is insanely good and super easy to make when you have the right ingredients.

Why Shrimp

Shrimp is a low carb crustacean that makes any keto-friendly dish taste better.  I love getting my shrimp already cooked.  I usually buy a big bag of shrimp from Whole Foods that last me a few weeks.

The Dressing Makes the Salad

There are a lot low carb, high fat, and keto-friendly salad dressings out there.  I typically stay away from consuming fat that has inflammatory properties and love dressings that are made by Primal Kitchen. Primal Kitchen has a delicious avocado oil based dressing that I love to use on my salads.  This salad uses their Avocado Caesar dressing. 

Making this salad takes just a few minutes.  I throw in a few cups of greens comprised of baby spinach and spring mix.  I toss in 6-8 shrimp, dress things up with 4 tablespoons of Avocado Caesar dressing and sprinkle 1/2 cup of grated parmesan cheese on top.
