Keto Shrimp Scampi


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.

  • 2 (8 ounce) packages shirataki noodles, drained and rinsed

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon minced shallot

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes

  • 12 ounces raw shrimp, peeled and deveined

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

  • 3 tablespoons dry white wine

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley


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

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

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