How to Make Sheet Pan Garlic Butter Shrimp
Preheat oven to 400F.
Pour the mixture over the shrimp and toss to combine.
Make sure all the shrimp is well coated.
Place them on the upper ⅔ rack of your oven and bake 8 minutes or until the shrimp have turned pink.
Garnish with fresh lemon slices and the rest of the chopped parsley. You can serve the shrimp with the lemon garlic butter sauce over cauliflower rice, Palmini or shirataki noodles.
Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for a day or two or freeze.
My personal favorite pasta substitute is Palmini Noodles. The texture is much like al dente pasta and when they are rinsed well before using, they do not have a funny taste like a lot of other types. And the great thing about it is Palmini comes in different widths. They have Palmini Linguini size noodles and they even have Palmini Lasagna sized noodles.
Tips For Buying Shrimp
- Look for the "easy peel," shrimp. They have the skin split down the back that make peeling a breeze.
- Unless you're lucky enough to live in coastal region that have daily shrimp boat arrivals, chances are you're buying shrimp that have been imported, but that's usually just fine. Just make sure they're firm in texture and do not feel slimy or have a strong "shrimpy" smell. That usually means they are not so fresh.
- If you're buying frozen shrimp, which definitely have a longer shelf life, read the label. Shrimp should be just that, shrimp. There should be no preservatives listed on the label.
- Really good quality shrimp, when cooked, will have a real sweet flavor. So, if you get some that tastes of chlorine or ammonia, which is sometimes used to clean them in some countries, you may want to try another brand.
- Wild caught shrimp are going to be sweeter and are better quality than farm raised, so try to find those when you can. They'll keep for months in the freezer so stock up when you're able. They're great to have on hand, and they thaw in cool water in minutes. You can have a Keto shrimp recipe ready in minutes!
What are the Carbs in Shrimp?
There are only about 1.5 grams of carbs in a 6 ounce serving of shrimp and they are an excellent source of protein. That makes them a wonderful choice for those on Keto or low carb diets.
