Well, here you go, another winner. If you love fried shrimp, this Keto version leaves you missing nothing. Honestly, I couldn’t tell a difference in taste. It was on point. Adding the unsweetened coconut flakes was a win as well. I love coconut fried shrimp and this totally fit that need. Shrimp is great because you can eat quite a bit and stay low on calories. 10 shrimp, as pictured on my salad, is only about 60 calories. Win right? I know. Hope you enjoy them as much as we did.
1 lb fresh large shrimp, peeled and de-veined; Kroger spicy chicharrones 1/2 bag; Unsweetened coconut flakes 1 1/2 cups; 4 tbs almond flour; 1/2 cup parmesan cheese, grated
In your blender, blend your chicharrones for 3-5 seconds. Add in your parmesan, coconut, and your almond flour. Blend again until you have a powder-like consistency.
In a separate bowl, beat an egg. Add in hot sauce (if desired). Dip your shrimp into the egg mixture and then coat in your breading mixture. Place directly into your pre-heated air fryer. Once filled, air fry for 10 minutes, flipping halfway. Remove and enjoy. Super simple right?
You can also use the non-spicy chicharrones, add more seasoning, remove the coconut.. customize how you like. You won’t be disappointed with the texture nor the taste.
