What is keto shrimp cocktail?

For this dish, when we say keto, we are referring to the shrimp cocktail sauce because classic cocktail sauces contain sugar. Shrimp, being a protein is of course low in carbs already so it’s the cocktail sauce you need to worry about when on a keto and low carb diet.

What kind of shrimp should I use to make keto shrimp cocktail?

I prefer using large frozen pre-peeled shrimp about 21/25 shrimp count per 1 pound. If you’re not familiar, it’s usually listed on the front of the bags.

The special ingredients needed for this recipe are Sugar Free Ketchup, Monkfruit, Wasabi Paste, Worcestershire Sauce and Sriracha.  All these can be picked up on Amazon or a local supermarket.
