  • 1 pound raw shrimp (at least)
  • 1 tbsp salted butter
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • ½ cup parmesan cheese
  • ¼ cup baby kale
  • 5 dried tomatoes
  • ½ cup whole milk


  • As the first step, you should melt your butter in a pan with the usage of medium heat. Then you must go ahead and add the shrimps into the pan.
  • After you do it, you will need to reduce the heat from medium to low. After cooking shrimp for a period of 30 seconds, you should go ahead and turn your shrimp. Then you need to cook the other side of shrimp.
  • You must continue this until you see a light pink color. You need to make sure that you cook shrimp until it gives out a pink color. That’s because the sauce you add will further cook shrimps. If you don’t follow this step correctly, you will end up getting your shrimp to be rubbery and tough.
  • As the next step, you must add cream cheese into the pan where you contain shrimps.
  • Then you need to add milk you have got into the same pan and turn the heat again into the medium level.
  • After that, you must stir the pan frequently. You must do it until your cheese is fully melted to milk. You should also make sure that no lumps can be seen in the pan.
  • Now it is the high time for you to sprinkle salt, basil and garlic into the plan. After adding all these ingredients, you will need to stir well.
  • After a couple of minutes, you can put Parmesan cheese and stir again. You will have to do this until the sauce becomes thick.
  • To complete the dish, you can add spinach, baby kale and dried tomatoes into the pan. After you add them, it is possible for you to go ahead and remove the heat. Then you are encouraged to serve the keto shrimp recipe hot.
