WHAT IS PARMESAN SHRIMP AND BROCCOLI?

Parmesan shrimp and broccoli is a simple seafood dish that deliciously uses parmesan cheese as a coating for the shrimp.

Add broccoli and this recipe is a wonderfully healthy keto shrimp dish! If you’re a seafood lover, this dish is definitely for you!

KETO PARMESAN SHRIMP AND BROCCOLI INGREDIENTS

Before you try to make this recipe, you’ll want to have the following ingredients on hand.

  • 1 lb shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 head broccoli florets
  • 1/4 cup chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil
  • 4 tbsp minced garlic
  • pink Himalayan salt, to taste
  • fresh ground black pepper, to taste

After you have all these ingredients, you are set and ready to cook!

WHAT SIZE SHRIMP SHOULD I USE?

First, it is important to understand how shrimp are sized for resale.

Shrimp are categorized by how many shrimp will found in the package. They are also always sold by the pound.

For instance, if the shrimp are very small and generally 60 to 70 shrimp makeup one pound, then the bag or container will have 60/70 on it.

Similarly, if the shrimp are very large and only 15 to 20 will make up one pound, they will show 15/20.

When choosing the size of shrimp you’d like to use for this recipe, any kind will work. If you want more, smaller shrimp, use 50/60 or 60/70.

If you’d like larger, heartier shrimp, use something closer to 20/30 or 30/40.

Truly, the choice is yours. They will all cook similarly and taste just as good!

WHICH IS BETTER? FRESH OR FROZEN SHRIMP?

The obvious answer here is fresh shrimp. This is especially true if you live near an area that has a large body of water and an avid fishing community.

These are probably the freshest shrimp you can find and they are absolutely delicious!

These shrimp will have the best, freshest taste, especially if cooked the same day they are bought. Of course, most of the time you have to buy these at a fish market, and a lot of the extra work is left up to you. This sometimes includes removing the head, shell, and deveining the shrimp.

Reality is, of course, a lot of us do not live near an area like this, so frozen shrimp is our only choice. If you’re lucky, you might even find shrimp that have been frozen in water, which I have heard is one of the best-kept secrets to deliciously frozen shrimp.

You might be able to find this in the “fresh” seafood section of your grocery.

Otherwise, you’re stuck with the bagged frozen shrimp. These are just fine and will not have a bad taste.

Refer to the shrimp sizing information above when choosing your frozen bagged shrimp for this keto shrimp and bacon chowder.

IS KETO PARMESAN SHRIMP AND BROCCOLI GLUTEN-FREE?

Thanks to the fact there are no flours (including almond or coconut) used in this recipe, we can very safely say these keto delicious shrimp are totally gluten-free!

HOW TO STORE LEFTOVER KETO PARMESAN SHRIMP

The easiest way to store your leftovers is in a glass storage container. These containers are very versatile and make a great addition to any kitchen.

Not only can you store leftovers in them, but you can also reheat directly in them in both the microwave and the stove without having to remove the food and placing it into another dish.

You can keep your leftovers in the fridge for up to 4 days. After this time, it’s probably best to discard whatever may be left.

Instructions on how to reheat your leftovers can be found below.

HOW TO REHEAT PARMESAN SHRIMP AND BROCCOLI

Reheating this recipe is very easy. You can either opt to use the microwave or your oven.

If using the microwave, heat in short increments until the desired temperature is reached. Do note, using the microwave will more than likely “toughen” your shrimp, so they might be a bit tougher than the first time you ate them.

If using the oven, preheat to 350˚F and place the leftovers inside. Heat for 5 minutes and check temperature. Continue to heat in small increments until the desired temperature is reached.

With either method the most important thing is to remove and enjoy!
