Easy Keto Shrimp Recipe
If you want to make this low carb shrimp fried rice in record time, you should use peeled and deveined shrimp. I get mine at the freezer section of the meat department. The ones I used in this dish are Jumbo shrimp and they come already peeled and deveined. Simply thaw the shrimp in the refrigerator the morning of and you are set to cook up the shrimp when you make dinner.
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.
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.

Despite using shortcut ingredients, this keto fried rice recipe is easy to prepare in 10 minute because it is a one pot meal. That means everything is thrown into one skillet and cooked until done. You don’t need to dirty more dishes with this keto shrimp fried rice recipe.
