Mary Ann’s Creamy, Low Carb, Keto Friendly Shrimp

Hi all! We made a delicious dish the other night for dinner and wanted to share it with you! We were looking for something light and healthy and this was perfect.

Servings: 4


  • Olive oil
  • Butter
  • Shrimp, deveined, and tails removed
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Grape tomatoes, halved
  • 3-4 cups baby spinach
  • 3/4 – 1 cup light cream
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Romano &/
  • Parmesan cheese


  • Start by heating large skillet – when heated to medium high/ hot, add equal amounts olive oil & butter to coat the bottom.
  • Once heated & shimmering, add the shrimp & some salt & pepper.
  • Toss the shrimp & sauté them in the oil & butter for approximately 3-4 minutes.
  • With a slotted spoon, remove the sautéed shrimp & set aside.
  • Add the tomatoes & sauté for about 2 minutes.
  • Then, add the garlic & the spinach. Toss and sauté for approximately 2-3 minutes.
    You want your spinach to be a lovely, bright green… & not overcooked.
  • Add the light cream & cheese(s).
  • Mix together till they make a nice & creamy sauce.
  • Reduce to a low heat, add the shrimp you set aside & toss everything together until the shrimp are well coated with the sauce.

Taste the sauce & adjust the seasonings to your personal preference.

Serve immediately & Enjoy!
We even serve it right in the pan we make it in! 😉

Take a look… We loved it! You could even make this and toss with pasta. Let us know if you do!
