Keto Tuscan Shrimp with Calabrian Peppers

Spicy, Creamy Keto Tuscan Shrimp
Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time15 mins
Course: Entree
Cuisine: American
Keyword: shrimp
Servings: 2

Ingredients

  • 1 pound shrimp
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 small shallot or onion minced
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1 cup heavy cream see notes
  • 2 tablespoons bomba sauce see notes
  • 2 handfuls spinach leaves
  • 1 tablespoon flat Italian parsley
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper or to test

Instructions

  • Get all ingredients in place, as this recipe is made quickly.
  • Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in pan. You can use a dutch oven, a frying pan, or enameled pan as I did. Do not use a cast iron pan.
  • Cook shrimp for a few minutes just until no longer translucent. Remove from pan and set aside.
  • Add remaining butter. Add onion and soften. Add garlic and saute for a minute.
  • Have a lid at the ready and add in wine. Sometimes when wine hits fat it will shoot straight up, so a lid is important.
  • Add in heavy cream and stir in bomba sauce or sun dried tomatoes and red chili flakes.
  • Add in spinach leaves. Add shrimp back in and turn off heat.
  • Sprinkle with chopped parsley.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Notes

Feel free to add in up to 1/2 cup parmesan cheese if desired. 
Substitute bomba sauce with 4 tablespoons sun dried tomatoes chopped and 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes.
TO REDUCE HEAVY CREAM: Use 1/4 heavy cream and xanthan gum gel (recipe in this blog post), and 3/4 cup broth.
