Keto Crispy Batter Fried Shrimp


  • 1 1/2 pounds large shrimp tails peeled and deveined
  • cooking oil of choice
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Heat the oil of choice in a deep skillet over medium-high heat. Optionally, you can use an air fryer; preheat now if using.
  • Clean and wash shrimp, leaving the tails intact.
  • In a bowl, mix together the almond flour, egg, almond milk, garlic powder, paprika, salt, and pepper until combined.
  • Once the oil is hot, hold the shrimp by the tail and dip into the batter and get a thick coating.
  • Carefully place the shrimp into the oil, only cooking a few at a time to avoid overcrowding. Cook for 3-5 minutes, until golden brown on the outsides and opaque in the center.
  • Repeat dipping and frying for all of the remaining shrimp. Service with your choice of dipping sauce, a fresh salad, or other low carb side. Enjoy!
