There’s something about shrimp scampi that is so comforting – it’s such a simple meal but also fresh and delicious at the same time. I like making this baked version of shrimp scampi and then toss mine with zucchini noodles or my favorite pasta alternative – NuPasta. This is also delicious over cauliflower rice – the cauliflower absorbs the garlic butter goodness and is so filling.  What’s nice about baking this keto shrimp scampi is that non-keto members of my family can then use whatever base they prefer!

I like to get my shrimp with the tails off, it’s just so much easier to eat, but some people swear that keeping the tails on adds to the flavor – so you can use whichever you prefer for this keto shrimp recipe.

Many people think shrimp is unhealthy because it’s high in cholesterol, and while it is higher in cholesterol than other seafood, it’s packed with omega-3 fatty acids and one of the best sources of astaxanthin, which is a powerful antioxidant which specifically is important for women as we age – it improves the moisture content of our skin and protects from collagen loss. So, while we shouldn’t have shrimp daily, enjoying a shrimp dish like this keto shrimp scampi every few weeks is 100% healthy!
