KETO SHRIMP COCKTAIL
Growing up in a catering family, I eat and serve a lot of Shrimp Cocktail. Giant prawns, small shrimp, and everything in between swim in my dreams. They dive into Zesty Cocktail Sauce and plunge into the open mouths of my customers. Believe me, to say “a lot” may be an understatement.
To make Shrimp Cocktail keto, I stopped steaming with beer. I use lemons, bay leaves, and KetoLuxe Chesapeake Bay Seasoning to impart flavor and keep it low carb. Also sugar free and gluten free, my recipe is simple to make and delicious.
At home, I like to go Old School with Shrimp Cocktail. Spoon a dollop of Zesty Cocktail Sauce in the bottom of your favorite cocktail glass. Place shrimp, tail side out, along the edge so that they dive into the sauce.
Serve at your next soiree with Zesty Cocktail Sauce for an elegant, low calorie finger food. My simple recipe takes just a few minutes to make for a high visual impact. Garnish with fresh lemon. Everyone will be impressed with this luxury food. Whether you serve on a platter or individual cocktail glasses, you’ll be living KetoLuxe.
Old School Shrimp Cocktail in a martini glass shows off the beauty of whole shrimp.
