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!
