Keto Shrimp Fried Rice Low Carb Recipe (Quick and Easy)

Share to save for later!

Today I have a delicious dish for you that will be appreciated by all lovers of both Chinese and Mediterranean cuisine. It’s called keto shrimp fried rice with riced cauliflower.

This keto shrimp fried cauliflower rice is very easy to make, just like my other keto chicken fried rice recipe.

Shrimp is a delicious and healthy source of protein on any diet. Also, shrimp is an excellent source of omega 3 fatty acids and it contains vitamin B12, selenium, and also antioxidants, which increase the body’s immunity.

There are many keto shrimp recipes you can make. They are relatively simple to cook because you don’t need a lot of time to prepare shrimp compared to meat and fish.

Instead of white rice, I use cauliflower. To be more specific, I make rice from cauliflower. This is a lot healthier than rice and has a lot less amount of carbohydrates.

Cauliflower is a cruciferous vegetable, which has sulfur-containing compounds that have been shown to protect against cancer, neurodegenerative disorders, cancer, and diabetes. They also have antiviral and antibacterial properties to support a healthy immune system (1).

Additionally, natural organosulfur compounds (OSC) found in cruciferous vegetables have antioxidant properties that help reduce inflammation. They also have anti-aging, antiplatelet, and fibrinolytic properties to prevent blood clotting and support various health benefits (2).

You can make many keto rice recipes using cauliflower.

Eggs, in this recipe, are a source of extra protein and healthy fats. Be sure to add this ingredient to your diet because of the minerals iron, phosphorus, iodine, and selenium. Egg yolks are also an excellent source of vitamin D, which helps protect heart health and boost your immune system (3). Vitamin D deficiency has also been linked to autoimmune disorders (4).

I also added garlic and ginger to this dish, which are known for their properties to accelerate metabolism and enhance immunity. In addition, they add a special flavor and piquancy to the dish.

I also added a shallot onion to the recipe, which has a very delicate taste and aroma. Also, it contains a lot of vitamin C and minerals.

Once you make this keto shrimp stir fry with cauliflower rice, there’s no need to order fried rice from Chinese restaurants.

Feel free to experiment with different seasonings and sources of protein, such as pork or chicken instead of shrimp. Bon Appetit!

How to Make Low Carb Cauliflower Shrimp Fried Rice

Use a food processor to shred the cauliflower until you obtain the rice-sized pieces. Drain the riced cauliflower well and set aside.

In a frying pan over medium-high heat, add olive oil in and fry bacon. Once it becomes crispy, remove and chop into small pieces. Set aside.

In the same frying pan, add olive oil in then add ginger and garlic. Saute for 30 seconds until they release an amazing smell. Add cauliflower rice in and stir well. Cover with a lid and cook on low for 6-8 minutes.

You can also cook without the lid on, just make sure to stir well to avoid the cauliflower getting burnt at the bottom.

Finally, add bacon, shrimp, scrambled egg, chopped scallions, and coconut aminos (or soy sauce if not strict keto) in. Mix well. Sprinkle with extra salt and pepper if needed. Serve immediately.
