Shrimp, a popular seafood choice worldwide, offers a wealth of health benefits. Packed with high-quality protein and low in calories, shrimp provides essential nutrients such as vitamins D and B12, selenium, and omega-3 fatty acids, which play vital roles in promoting heart and brain health. For those on a low-carb diet, shrimp is an especially beneficial choice. With virtually zero carbohydrates, it’s an excellent protein source that can easily be incorporated into various dishes without adding any unwanted carbs. Additionally, the iodine found in shrimp supports thyroid function, a crucial factor in regulating metabolism. The combination of its low-calorie, high-protein, and rich nutrient profile makes shrimp a wise dietary selection for anyone, particularly those following low-carb eating plans.

  • Red bell peppers thinly sliced
  • Cucumbers sliced
  • Avocado sliced
  • Green onions chopped
  • Serrano peppers sliced
  • Toasted sesame seeds
  • Spicy mayo for drizzling


  • Marinate the Shrimp: Begin by placing your shrimp in a zip-lock bag. Add a generous amount of Spicy Danos (or your preferred spicy seasoning) for that fiery kick. To balance the heat, drizzle in some sugar-free honey. Make sure to massage the bag gently, ensuring each shrimp gets well-coated with the marinade. Allow it to rest in the fridge for about 20 to 30 minutes.
  • Prep the Cauliflower Rice: While the shrimp is marinating, prepare your cauliflower rice. Break it up nicely and season with salt and pepper. This will serve as the low-carb base for our bowl, ensuring the meal is both delicious and waistline-friendly.
  • Air-Fry the Shrimp: Once marinated, arrange the shrimp in a single layer in your air fryer. Air fry at 395°F for about six minutes or until the shrimp turns pink and slightly crispy.
  • Assemble Your Bowl: Begin by laying a generous portion of cauliflower rice at the base. Layer on the vibrant red bell peppers, refreshing cucumber slices, creamy avocado, and the crisp green onions. For those who like an extra kick, scatter some thinly sliced Serrano peppers. Top it all off with a sprinkle of toasted sesame seeds.
  • The Final Touch: Drizzle over some spicy mayo to elevate the flavors. And there you have it – a bowl bursting with flavors and textures that’s sure to satisfy both your taste buds and your dietary goals.
