Keto Shrimp Alfredo


Tender shrimp in our famous creamy keto garlic-Parmesan Alfredo sauce, without the carbs! One forkful, and you'll wonder where this has been all your life. I serve mine over a bed of steamed shredded cauliflower. Good over spinach salad as well.

  • 2 tablespoons salted butter

  • 1 pound uncooked medium shrimp, peeled and deveined

  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, cubed

  • ½ cup heavy whipping cream

  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder

  • 1 tablespoon dried basil

  • 1 tablespoon ground black pepper

  • 2 teaspoons salt

  • 1 ½ cups grated Parmesan cheese

  • 1 teaspoon psyllium husk

  • ½ cup baby kale

  • 5 sun-dried tomatoes, cut into strips


  1. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add shrimp; reduce heat to medium-low. Cook, turning shrimp after 30 seconds, until only slightly pink, about 1 minute. Add cream cheese and heavy cream; increase heat to medium. Cook, stirring frequently, until cream cheese is melted and no lumps remain, about 2 minutes.

  2. Sprinkle garlic powder, basil, pepper, and salt into the skillet; stir well. Mix in Parmesan cheese until well combined. Simmer until sauce starts to thicken, about 5 minutes. Add psyllium husk. Cook and stir until desired thickness is reached, 5 to 7 minutes more. Fold in kale and sun-dried tomatoes. Remove from heat.


You can substitute chicken for shrimp if you are not a seafood person.
