You'll ❤️ Love Stir Fry With Shimp
Finding healthy recipes that I can serve to my whole family is my number one criteria - even those not following a keto diet. Stir fry with shrimp was a huge hit and there was literally nothing left in the pan when they finished! 🙂 I wish I had caught that on video!
Easy One Pan
This really is easy. The shrimp and veggies are sauteed until in one pan and the sauce added in the last few minutes. Takes less than 25 minutes from start to finish. It's a great recipe to use up vegetables in your fridge!
I absolutely LOVE the flavors in this dish. The combination of ginger, soy sauce (coconut aminos), and garlic, with sesame oil in the sauce is so delicious when added to the sauteed veggies and shrimp.
It's low carb, sugar-free, and keto
The recipe as it stands includes 1/2 cup of carrots and 1/2 cup of green onion. Even with that, there are only 7.5 gams of net carbs. That's great in my book! Full nutritional analysis is in the recipe card.

This is a very simple keto shrimp stir fry, here are the step-by-step instructions:
In a small bowl, whisk together ginger paste, garlic, coconut aminos, sesame oil, red pepper flakes, and xantham gum. Set aside
Heat oil in a skillet or wok until very hot (but not smoking), add shrimp, and saute until pink. Remove shrimp from pan, cover with foil and keep warm.
Add broccoli and carrots. Saute for 3 minutes, stirring frequently.
Add zucchini, bell peppers, and mushrooms. Saute for 3 minutes stirring frequently.
Add cabbage and green onion. Saute for 2 minutes. Test veggies for doneness. If needed, continue sauteing until veggies are done to your liking.
Add shrimp back to the pan and stir all together.
Pour sauce over veggies and shrimp and stir for 1 minute.
Toss it all together. Remove from heat and serve!
How To Serve
Shrimp stir fry can be a stand-alone dish, but I frequently serve it with riced cauliflower or Coconut Cauliflower Rice. Feel free to serve regular cooked rice for anyone not following a low carb or keto diet in your house.
Can I make keto stir fry with chicken or beef?
Yes, you can definitely swap out shrimp for chicken or beef. Super delicious!
Can I substitute other vegetables in my stir fry?
Yes, you can substitute any vegetables you like. I always use 8 cups of vegetables in whatever combination I have on hand. The only stipulation is that they have to be able to be stir-fried and you have to add tougher vegetables that take the longest to cook first (like broccoli).
How can I decrease carbs?
The easiest way is to not use carrots or green onion. I use a small amount of both because I love the flavor. I account for the carbs in that day's allowance.
