keto shrimp scampi in browned butter sauce

Love buttery shrimp scampi?

This keto cauliflower shrimp scampi recipe is one of my family’s favorite meals, and it’s so very easy to serve keto style using a tray of delicious roasted cauliflower instead of noodles. This is a rich and filling dinner idea that’s very easy to make and something everyone will LOVE!

ingredients for keto shrimp scampi with cauliflower

It all starts with a DELICIOUS pan of roasted cauliflower!

Cauliflower is such a yummy addition to shrimp scampi, as it gets so much deep flavor from roasting in the oven and is hearty & filling. If this isn’t a favorite veggie, zucchini noodles would be a yummy alternative, too.

The rest of our ingredients are pretty classic, like lots of butter, garlic, lemon juice, fresh parsley, and some red pepper flakes. I bought cooked shrimp, so all you really have to do is warm it up in the butter garlic sauce before serving it over the cauliflower. This makes for a simple and easy to make dinner any night of the week.

  2. Rachel

    Is frozen shrimp okay? Or do I need to thaw it first?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Ya – I usually rinse it and let it thaw for a few minutes before adding it, just to get the ice off.
