Keto Lobster Risotto


A lot of our recipe creations come from cravings of non low-carb/keto friendly dishes.  Most likely, if we can find a way to make it low-carb/keto, we most certainly will, and if it turns out amazing, then we share it with you all here on LCA!   If it’s disaster, it never happened!

This creation for low carb keto lobster risotto is a dish I’ve been craving for quite a while but it really took some experimenting on how to make a good substitute for risotto.

In the end, cauliflower rice seemed to produce the best and most similar tasting dish to regular rice risotto. 

I think you will be pleasantly surprised at how the cauliflower rice combines with the cheese and cream creating a delicious, satisfying and filling lobster risotto!

This dish is very rich and creamy and therefore very filling.  It produces two small bowls of risotto approximately one and a half cups each. So if you are really hungry or serving a few guests, make sure to double or triple the recipe.

You will be surprised to know how easy this low carb keto risotto dish is to make!  We start with your basic ingredient prep of cutting all the vegetables.  Once that’s done, we melt some butter inside a frying pan and add in the onion, mushroom, lobster tails and cook until tender.

Next, we add in the cauliflower rice and then lastly flavoring in the form of cream, Parmesan cheese, salt, black pepper and nutmeg.  Mix all that up, cook it for 5 minutes and there you go, you have yourself some low carb keto lobster risotto in no time!

If you happen to have lobster laying around, by all means use it in this recipe in place of the Langoustino Tails.  The reason I chose to use frozen Langoustino tails instead of Lobster is because these little shrimp looking tails, have a sweet and delicate flavor similar to that of lobster. 

I also wanted you guys to be able to make this dish with ingredients that were reasonably easy to find and not incredibly pricey to buy.

I usually purchase Langoustino Tails from my local Trader Joes Market.  If you don’t have a TJ nearby, you can also try your local supermarket. 

All in all, it’s really an easy dish to make once you have the ingredient ratio figured out!  All that and each serving comes in at ~5g net carb making it an great low-carb/keto option for you!

For this recipe, all the ingredients should be available at your local  supermarket.

Now, let’s get started!
