Why This Keto Shrimp And Grits Recipe Is So Fantastic

There are three things that most southern recipes have in common: they’re typically indulgent comfort foods, they absolutely delicious, and they’re high in carbs.

I don’t have any problems with the first two, but the high carb part I find a bit hard to swallow.

As both a huge fan of southern food and living a low carb lifestyle, I often find myself trying to make an otherwise carb-rich dish into a keto-friendly one. And that’s exactly what I did with this Keto Shrimp and Grits recipe.

I had to come up with an alternative that was both low in carbs and delicious. I decided to go with a cauliflower grits substitute for this Keto Shrimp and Grits, and let me tell you, it turned out amazingly well.

I know that you’re probably thinking, “Cauliflower?! Really?” But let me assure you, it works so very well. With the addition of the butter and parmesan cheese, and topped with deliciously cajun seasoned shrimp, these keto grits are beyond delicious. Now let’s get to cooking!

How To Make Keto Shrimp And Grits

  1. Cook cauliflower florets in water for 5 minutes until softened. Drain excess water.
  2. Add butter, cheese, salt, and pepper and puree with an immersion blender. Add a little cream to thin if needed.
  3. In a 10 inch skillet, heat butter on medium-low heat. Add garlic and sauté for 30 seconds.
  4. Add shrimp, Cajun seasoning and cream and cook until the shrimp are cooked through (about 5 minutes). Mix in lemon juice and parsley.
  5. Serve shrimp on top of mounds of the cauliflower “grits”.

Tips And Tricks For Making Keto Shrimp And Grits

  • If you prefer traditional grits and you’re not counting carbs, you can use my Cheese Grits recipe in place of the cauliflower grits.
  • Add a little cream to the mixture if the grits turn out to be too thick.
  • Be careful not to overcook the shrimp! Overcooked shrimp can be tough and make this Keto Shrimp and Grits experience not nearly as good as it could be.
  • Make sure to watch the shrimp closely while it’s cooking and remove them from the heat once they’ve turned a uniform pink and have curled slightly.

How Many Net Carbs Are In Grits?

A cup of your grits has 38 grams of carbs, with 2 of those grams being dietary fiber. That means there are 36 net carbs in a cup of standard grits.

A cup of my deliciously keto grits, however, only has about 6 grams of carbs, with nearly 3 of those grams being dietary fiber. That means only 3 net carbs per cup!

A single serving of my Keto Shrimp And Grits only has 7 net carbs, so you can enjoy this take on a southern classic completely guilt-free.
