You can easily make this shrimp pasta a keto recipe by removing some of the pasta from this marinated shrimp dinner! We recommend substituting ‘keto’ pasta for regular pasta using mozzarella cheese and egg yolks. Or, you can substitute keto-friendly pasta in this recipe.

Season the shrimp using olive oil, onion, and peppers. Add the fresh mushrooms and butter to the pan to add even more flavor. Cook the shrimp for 10 minutes and top with cheese and parsley before serving!
If you are eating a keto diet, you might be cutting back on carbs. We recommend substituting grits to reduce the carbohydrates in this meal. Substitute lupin meal, water, cream, and unsalted butter to make creamy and delicious grits without worrying about the carbs.

This easy keto recipe is great for those who want healthy and low-fat protein in the shrimp without worrying about extra carbs. We recommend using Italian dressing to pour over the top of the shrimp for an extra kick.
