This Keto Shrimp Stack recipe is based on one of my all-time favorite dishes: Baja Shrimp Stacks (which are made with rice and definitely not low carb).
However, with a couple simple substitutions, you’ve got an amazing keto-friendly meal! Seriously, eating keto is EASY when you’ve got food like this!
I love kelp noodles because they are extremely low in carbs, but provide that delicious al dente texture of real noodles. If you can’t find the kelp noodles at your local grocery store, you can simply omit.
However, my husband recently found these kelp noodles which only have 2 grams of net carbs for the entire bag (3 servings)!! I repeat: 2 grams net carbs for the entire bag!!
Why I Love This Recipe:
- Lots of healthy fats
- Super flavorful
- Perfect for satisfying sushi cravings
