Keto Shrimp Risotto – My dad loves comfort food and fresh seafood, so I combined both of those for Father’s Day. The risotto is creamy and, while it isn’t real rice, tastes pretty close to the real deal. I use fresh cauliflower rice in this recipe because I feel like it’s easier to control the texture, but frozen should work fine. The best part about this risotto is it doesn’t take nearly as long as regular risotto. You don’t have to slave over the stove, it comes together fast and tastes just as good.

Ingredients:

  • 2 lb shrimp, peeled and cleaned
  • 1 lb. riced cauliflower
  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 small shallot
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • Juice of ½ a lemon
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • ½ cup + 1 tablespoon heavy cream
  • 1 cup shredded parmesan
  • 2 tablespoon fresh basil, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon paprika

Directions:

Dice 2 cloves of garlic and shallot. Add oil to a large pot, turn on medium heat, and add garlic and shallots. Sauté for 1 minute.
