How to make keto garlic shrimp

Ingredients and substitutions

  • Shrimp. Fresh uncooked peeled shrimp with the tail left on is best. You can use pre-peeled frozen shrimp, also. Do not use cooked shrimp, as they will turn out too tough. For those in other regions, you can, of course, use prawns or scampi.
  • Italian salad dressing. This is our special shrimp ingredient. It combines all the elements and flavors you add individually in one bottle. It is cheap and makes it easier to add tang and zest. The dressing compliments shrimp and prawns perfectly.
  • Salted butter. Organic grass-fed butter is always best.
  • Garlic. We chock fresh garlic cloves. However, you can use pre-crushed garlic in a jar.

  1. Place shrimp in a bowl and marinate with Italian salad dressing. You only want to coat the shrimp. Shrimp do not need to be marinated for a lengthy period.
  2. Heat a frying pan on the highest setting and oil liberally (olive oil). You can use a BBQ hotplate also.
  3. Place shrimp on the pan until they start to turn white. Turn once and remove. Both shrimp and prawns cook very fast. These shrimp were fully cooked in under 3 minutes.
  4. Add chopped garlic and 3 ounces of butter to the hot pan until almost melted, then pour over the shrimp when serving.

Serve the shrimp on a bed of your favorite salad (we used rocket) and a wedge of lemon. This recipe can be served hot or cool but is unsuitable for storing.
