Shrimp is a great seafood to add to your diet, and fits in perfectly with the keto diet being virtually zero carb. Check out these great Keto Shrimp Recipes for some inspiration for your next dinner.

The great thing about shrimp is how fast they cook, and thankfully plenty of these recipes can be ready in 15 minutes or less, making shrimp the perfect week-night dinner ingredient.

Is Shrimp Keto?

The short answer is yes, you can eat shrimp on keto as they’re virtually zero carb (0.2g per 100g weight!)

However, whilst they’re zero carb, they’re also almost zero fat, with 0.5g or less of fat per 100g. In fact, the only macro they’re packing is protein, with a hefty 24g protein per 100g.

Pairing these protein heavy foods with some healthy fats like olive oil or avocado is a great way to balance your macros and stay in optimal ketosis.

How to Cook Shrimp

The key to cooking shrimp is to avoid overcooking at all costs – these guys go tough and chewy in no time! This takes some experience and judgement but you generally want to make sure they’re cooked through and then stop, more time isn’t going to improve them.

If you’ve bought pre-cooked shrimp (ie: they’re pink rather than blue) then this is extra important – as they’re already cooked they can quickly overcook. These pre-cooked shrimp should be ready to safe eat straight from the packet (hopefully!) so you really just need to heat them through.

If you’ve bought uncooked shrimp (which will likely be a blueish colour) then you want to make sure they’re cooked through and fully turned pink before you think about taking them off the heat.
