When I think about shrimp, I think about family gatherings, outdoor barbecues and cookouts.  All of which I’m looking forward to when summer rolls around.

One of my favorite seasonings to use with shrimp is Old Bay, a blend of spices and herbs with a strong herbaceous flavor.  It goes great with seafood and shrimp is no exception!

Not only is shrimp quick, easy and downright delicious, but it’s also a great protein to add to your wholesome low carb or keto diet.

All you have to do is toss shrimp in a mix of Old Bay seasoning and pan fry it to perfection!  Add a little garlic and lemon juice at the end and that’s all it takes to have yourself an amazing protein packed dish!

What type of shrimp is best for pan frying?

Any type of shrimp works great for pan frying but we recommend using medium to larger size models.  Just make sure they’re peeled and defrosted per instructions if using frozen.

What high-temp neutral oil do you recommend for pan frying?

We typically use grapeseed, but other good options are sunflower, safflower, canola, and corn oil.

What’s old bay seasoning?

Old bay seasoning is a mix of celery salt, black pepper, crushed red pepper, and paprika.  The seasoning is commonly used to season crustaceans or other types of seafood.  But they also go great with other types of meats such as chicken!

How spicy is this pan fried garlic shrimp recipe?

This old bay garlic pan fried shrimp has a nice kick to it but I wouldn’t say it’s packed with too much heat.  If you prefer your shrimp on the spicier side, just add a little more cayenne pepper, just don’t overdo it because cayenne pepper can get spicy quick!

For this recipe, you’ll need Old Bay Seasoning which you should be able to pick up at your local supermarket!
