Super Easy Broccoli and Shrimp Sautéed in Butter

If you love eating shrimp, you will want to try this recipe. We’d like to share with you an extremely easy and highly satisfying dish – broccoli and shrimp, sautéed in butter. It’s very quick to prepare (takes around 15 minutes in total) and you can put it in a tupperware and bring it to work.

Shrimp have a very good nutritional profile, being an excellent source of selenium, vitamin B12, phosphorus and copper. So go get some!

We’re showing you a very basic broccoli and shrimp stir-fry recipe that anyone can make, regardless of their cooking skill. However, you can use the suggestions below to make it more tasteful and interesting.

Let's Ketofy It!

Cut the broccoli into small pieces. The size is a matter of personal preference, but the smaller the pieces, the faster it will cook.

chop broccoli into small size

Put the butter in a pan and let it melt. Once it’s hot (but before it starts smoking), put the broccoli and stir.

Let the broccoli cook for about 3-4 minutes and stir occasionally.

fry broccoli in butter

Put the cleaned shrimps in the pan with the broccoli and let them cook until they become pink and aren’t transparent anymore. This takes about 3-4 minutes.

add shrimp and saute with broccoli

Sprinkle the lemon juice on top of everything and serve. Enjoy!

Note: Instead of butter, you can use ghee, coconut virgin oil, or another one of your favorite oils that is adapted for cooking.

If you would like to have some sauce with this dish, you can use mayonnaise. Mayonnaise is usually very keto-friendly (check the label to make sure) and goes very well with shrimp.

If you miss cheese, you can also sprinkle a tablespoon of grated Parmesan before serving.

You can also add heavy cream, Parmesan, and cream cheese to the final stage to make it like an Alfredo dish.
