It’s 5 pm. What’s for dinner? Never fear. Today, I’ve got you covered with Keto Cajun Shrimp Creole with Cauliflower Rice.
This is a delicious recipe you are sure to love. And your picky family will too. Mine does!
That’s why I’ve been making it for years. Recently, I’ve reworked it, though. Now it’s got only the healthiest ingredients!
Keto Shrimp Creole is my healthy spin on a classic Southern dish.
Here are all the reasons you need to try it.
First, it’s SO tasty, savory, and comforting. The recipe is easy and relatively quick.
In a pinch, I will leave out the fresh peppers and celery; that way, I can make it with the ingredients I already have on hand in my pantry and freezer.
Honestly, we still love the stripped-down version!
When fully dressed up with all the fresh veggies, it is “fancy” enough for guests and completed with a salad or a side vegetable.
Everyone will love the rich, bold flavors!
I like to keep bags of cauliflower rice in my freezer. It’s a great base for dishes and healthier than white rice.
You can make it yourself with fresh cauliflower, buy it freshly premade, or go with white rice.
You can purchase a store-bought Creole or Cajun spice to use in this recipe or make your own, thanks to Emeril Lagasse.
His recipe is a perfect punch of Creole flavors. Find it here.Print

This is so incredibly easy and delicious! Great for a weeknight family dinner or lovely to make for guests!!
This was delicious. We all loved it and will make it again.
Great to hear! Thanks, Lindsey!
I am making this for my husband and myself. How would you recommend storing the leftovers? Can this be freezed?
Sorry, I don’t know for sure! We always finish the whole dish (because it’s so delicious), so I’ve never frozen it. It may work, though! Let me know how it goes? 🙂
This was just delicious. Everyone loved it. We will definitely make it again. Thanks.
This is a new favorite in our house! Light enough for summer but hearty enough for year round. Really liked the shrimp and sausage combination.
That’s so awesome to hear! Thanks Shawn 🙂
