21 Best Keto Recipes of 2021

As 2021 comes to a close, I thought I’d highlight the best keto recipes of 2021, based on what Ketology readers loved the most. BUT WOW – what a year it has been! While there has been so much going on this year, I had so much fun creating new recipes, hacks and experimenting with all the new low carb and keto products on the market. While I personally shared over 100 recipes this year, after over four years on keto, I have learned so much and am so encouraged by how many of you are embracing low carb cooking!

So, what keto recipes did you all love the most in 2021? Here are my 21 best keto recipes based on reader feedback!

Keto Creamy Tequila Lime Chicken with Zucchini Fettuccini
This is a Keto-friendly version of a popular CPK dish: Creamy Tequila Lime Chicken Fettuccine aka Keto Tequila Lime Chicken with Zucchini Noodles because we subbed zucchini noodles for the pasta and voila! Delicious, creamy and filling – pair it with a low carb margarita and you're al set!
Though the original recipe for this is a dupe for California Pizza Kitchen's Tequila Lime Chicken, but half the time when I make this at home, I substitute the chicken breast for one pound of medium or large shrimp. Otherwise, keep the other ingredients the same and you'll have what is probably my favorite keto shrimp recipe!

Keto Salmon Patties
This keto salmon recipe is easy to prepare and serve over lettuce or keto cole slaw with fresh lemon wedges. I'll sometimes also make a spicy mayo – a mixture of my favorite avocado oil-based mayonnaise and sriracha (or my new favorite hot sauce, Truff) to top the keto salmon patties with and wrap them in a lettuce wrap. Delicious!
