Who loves crumbed seafood but doesn't want the bread, gluten, and carbs that come along with them?
Try these low carb lemon crumbed shrimps for an easy and quick snack, or serve with vegetables or salad and turn this into a complete meal, with a homemade mayonnaise on the side.
Lemon Crumbed Shrimps (in almond flour)
Crumbed and deep-fried seafood is incredibly unhealthy. Not only are they high in carbs, grains, colours, and flavours, but more concerning are the processed and oxidised seed oils they are usually fried in.
It's also scary just how much you can eat in one sitting if you're not careful, so I decided to develop a recipe that has no grains, no gluten, low carb, no seed oils, and really simple and quick.
All quantities, ingredients, and instructions are in the recipe card below.
- pre-cooked frozen shrimps (defrosted and drained)
- almond meal (almond flour)
- zest of 1 lemon
- salt and pepper to taste
COOKBOOKS - MEAL PLANS - PANTRY
Once cooked, the almond flour crumbed lemon shrimps can be stored in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
The lemon crumbed shrimps cannot be frozen because they have previously been defrosted and then cooked.
