Keto Shrimp Caesar Salad

Keto Shrimp Caesar Salad

The Keto Shrimp Caesar Salad is an easy low carb meal that can be prepped well in advance, making it a perfect option to bring to work or as a quick dinner.  It’s so simple, and one of those handful of meals that you can make pretty frequently without getting tired of it. Just chop up some romaine lettuce (ensure it’s washed/drained well), add a  generous helping of parmesan cheese, and toss in some Caesar salad dressing.  While you can make your own dressing using a recipe such as this one , I find the bottled version more convenient.

Here’s the dressing I used for this Keto Shrimp Caesar Salad:

Yes, there’s a minuscule amount of cornstarch in this dressing, an ingredient some following strict Keto may choose to avoid, but at <1net Carbs per serving (of 2 Tbsp) this salad dressing is safe to consume and remain in ketosis. If you select another Caesar salad dressing, just remember to check the label to ensure there’s no added sugars.  Always check the carb count of all condiments/ dressings!

Aside from selecting the dressing, you’ll be topping off your Keto Caesar Salad with some shrimp to get some protein. You can either buy the precooked variety, or follow the steps below to cook raw shrimp.  Just remember to peel and thaw the shrimp first.   

Croutons are of course off-limits for this salad to keep it Low Carb/ Keto friendly.  But if you’re missing the croutons and would like a little crunch in your salad, just add a few Whisp Parmesan Crisps as a crouton substitute. 

Or a second alternative to add some crunch is to sprinkle your Keto Shrimp Caesar Salad with some Bacon Bits. 

Just follow the remaining steps in the recipe below and ENJOY!
