OMG! You are gonna love this! This just popped into my head. All my fav ingredients for Keto are in this one dish! YUM!

CREAMY COCONUT GARLIC SHRIMP

1 bag of frozen shrimp/de-veined,detailed and thawed! (big shrimp, not tiny)
1 heaping TBSP of Coconut oil
__________________________________________
Once shrimp is thawed, place coconut oil in pan. Melt. Once melted place the shrimp on Med-low heat and toss in the coconut oil. Dont over cook! You dont want chewy shrimp!
Once heated, set on VERY low and put aside.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
COCONUT GARLIC SAUCE

2 tablespoons mayo(hellmans or dukes)
1/4 tsp chili oil,paste or red pepper (optional:this is only to add a spicy flavor)
**1/4 or smaller tsp of coconut flavoring. (optional)
**1-1/5 tsp of garlic powder (more or less depending on your taste for garlic)
*Whipping cream
__________________________________________________ ________

In a bowl mix mayo and chili paste/oil/pepper together till smooth.
Slowly add whipping cream 2 tablespoons at a time till you reach a smooth texture of a dressing. Add garlic. And if you want, coconut flavoring.

Toss Shrimp in bowl with sauce. Place in microwave for 8-10 seconds till warm. Dont OVERHEAT or oil can surface to top. Toss on a plate! Sauce will thicken once it's cooled!

Let me know what you all think! If you like it..please rep! :-)

Enjoy! ;-)

Hey this looks great!!

It just so happens that I have a big bag of frozen shrimp in the freezer and have been trying to think of something different to do with it. Perfect!! The combination of coconut sauce and a little spice should be great. I think I'll try a little cayenne pepper...

Also, I think I will take it one step further and spoon this shrimp mixture over some grilled tilapia fillets!! Got some of those in the freezer too!!

Thanks a bunch floridablonde... Wish I could rep you but I'm still a newbie.

Just tried this and it was good.
I used real garlic in the sauce and also put a packet of splenda and some coconut shavings in to sweeten it up a bit.

My shrimp is never detailed, always bland. ;)
