    Simplify it by getting frozen shrimp

    If you want to make this low carb shrimp fried rice in record time, you should use peeled and deveined shrimp.

    The Vegetables in Cauliflower Fried Rice

    To make this keto shrimp fried rice recipe really simple I like to use frozen vegetables

    I reach for a medley of stir-fry vegetables that have asparagus, mushrooms, onions, green beans and zucchini. Try to stay away from frozen vegetables that have lots of carrots, peas or water chestnuts as these are higher in carbs.

    Feel free to add additional veggies like fresh mushrooms, green onions or maybe even spinach for color and flavor.

    Cauliflower Rice

    To keep this dish low carb, we use riced cauliflower instead of white rice.

    One cup of cauliflower rice has 1.8 grams net carbs! Once you mix in all of the delicious sauces, seasonings and vegetables you won’t even miss the white rice.

    Cauliflower rice is foundational to many keto recipes I love including:
