Keto Stir Fry With Shrimp (Low Carb Keto Chinese) is a super easy one-pan Chinese recipe you can whip together in no time! So much delicious Asian flavor with tender shrimp and vegetables. Serve on its own or over riced cauliflower. Yum. Low carb, sugar-free, and keto-friendly - what's not to love? 🙂
Why You Will Love Stir Fry With Shimp
Perfect For Everyone - Even Those Not On A Keto Diet
Finding healthy recipes that I can serve to my whole family is my number one criteria. 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!
Super easy one-pan meal
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!
It tastes amazing
I absolutely LOVE the flavor of this dish. The combination of ginger, soy sauce (coconut aminos), garlic, with sesame oil for 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.

Ingredients and Tools
- 4 tbsp olive oil
- 1 lb shrimp
- 8 cups vegetables in bites sized pieces/slices (we used 2 cups broccoli, 1/2 cup carrots, 1 cup zucchini, 1 cups bell peppers (red and yellow), 2 cups mushrooms, 1 cup thinly sliced cabbage, and 1/2 cup green onion)
- 1 tsp ginger paste
- 2 tsp garlic
- 1/4 cup coconut or liquid aminos or tamari sauce (or, soy sauce if not following keto)
- 4 tsp sesame oil
- 1/8 to 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
- 1/2 tsp xantham gum (or, 2 tsp cornstarch if not following keto)
- Fry pan or wok
- chefs knife
- cutting board
- dry measuring cups
- liquid measuring cups
- measuring spoons
Step by Step Instructions
This is a very simple keto stir fry, here's how to make:
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 likeness.
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 is really a stand-alone dish, but I frequently serve it with riced cauliflower. For anyone not on a low carb or keto diet rice, of course, is amazing.
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.
- Mongolian Beef and Broccoli (Low Carb and Keto Chinese)
- Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff (Keto Beef Stroganoff)
- Traditional Hungarian Paprika Chicken (Low Carb and Keto)
- Italian Slow Cooker Chicken Thighs (Low Carb and Keto Slow Cooker Chicken)
- Best Corned Beef Recipe (Slow Cooker and Instant Pot)
- French Country Skillet Chicken Dinner
