Step into an Italian summer with this Tuscan Butter Shrimp recipe. It’s fresh, flavorful, and incredibly versatile—eat it by itself or over some cauliflower rice or zoodles.
All fish and shellfish are keto-friendly and low in carbohydrates. In particular, shrimp has 0 grams of net carbs while being packed full of protein to keep you satiated. It is also a low-calorie seafood option, making it an excellent choice for people looking to shed some extra weight.
The light taste of the shrimp pairs perfectly with the buttery, garlic-infused sauce, which coats the shrimp and enhances their flavor. Add in some cherry tomatoes for a slightly sweet, slightly sour bite and a generous portion of spinach. Both the cherry tomatoes and spinach add in much-needed freshness which cuts through the buttery sauce.
Adding broccoli also ups the veggie content. Broccoli is high in plant-based protein and is full of fiber to keep your digestion working well and your body healthy. It also contains lots of vitamins, including vitamin A, C, and K. Don’t forget to squeeze some lemon over the top and garnish with extra basil before serving!
This recipe is perfect the way it is, but if shrimp is not your favorite protein, you can also substitute it with another seafood, like salmon or other types of fish. The Tuscan butter shrimp also keeps well in the fridge for leftovers the next day.
