Creamy Shrimp Alfredo – Keto and Low Carb

Shrimp Alfredo - Keto and Low Carb

This Alfredo sauce is out of this world fantastic!  Smooth and creamy, packed with freshly grated parmesan cheese flavor.  It only takes minutes to make and though I made it with shrimp, you can make it with chicken, if you’d like.

I typically prefer jumbo shrimp, but in this dish, I really like the smaller, bite size shrimp.  I buy them already peeled, deveined with the tails removed, it just makes my life much easier!  And while I realize that it might be a bit taboo to serve grated cheese with any kind of seafood, in this dish it’s not only essential, but it’s spectacular!  Some rules are meant to be broken I suppose…

Ingredients

20 ounces medium shrimp, peeled, deveined and tails off

1 cup Mascarpone Cheese

1 1/2 cups parmesan cheese, grated

4 tablespoons grass-fed butter

1 cup Heavy Cream

1 tablespoon olive oil

3 cloves garlic

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped

Preparation

Heat a large skillet to medium heat.

Simmer on low for about 5 minutes or until thickened to your liking.  This sauce does not need to cook long at all, that’s the beauty of it!

I served mine with zoodles that I made with my OXO Spiralizer.  I heated them for 40 seconds in the microwave, patted them dry and tossed in the Alfredo sauce, then topped with the shrimp.

This is my new FAVORITE Alfredo dish! Without a doubt this is the best Shrimp Alfredo I have ever had. My wife told me this dish was Keto friendly, and it makes me wonder why it is even better than restaurant quality. This dinner is a must for everyone, even if you are like me and not on a diet.
