This yummy low carb shrimp recipe hits all of the high notes on flavor.
- It's got shrimp...yaaas!
- It's got butter...double yaaas!
- cauliflower...oh heck yes!

These sheet pan dinners are all the rage right now, and I can definitely see why. I could have easily made this in a skillet, but who wants to babysit a skillet for 15 minutes when I can just throw everything on a sheet pan and stick it in the oven?
For the cauliflower rice in this low carb shrimp with garlic butter, I used already riced cauliflower. These little packages of awesome are such a major shortcut! You can buy them in the store, or you can make your own like me! Check out Microwave Cauliflower Rice DIY
I seriously loathe cutting up a head of cauliflower so these are such a lifesaver for those of us that hate the mess that chopping cauliflower makes. I mean cutting a head of cauliflower = super messy kitchen with tiny little cauliflower florets all over the floor. And the worst part? My dog doesn't eat cauliflower so he leaves me to clean it up!
I also used frozen shrimp for this low carb shrimp recipe. Frozen shrimp are such a great budget friendly option...especially when you find it on sale!

Garlic Butter Shrimp with Cauliflower Rice
- 1 ½ lbs Raw large frozen shrimp thawed, peeled, and deveined
- 20 ounces Riced cauliflower
- ½ cup Salted butter, melted
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic
- 2 teaspoon dried, chopped, parsley
- ½ teaspoon Kosher salt
- ¼ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
- Pre-heat oven to 400F
- Cut the florets off of the stem of the cauliflower and discard the stem. Add the florets to a food processor and process until it resembles the texture of rice. Alternatively, you can buy already riced cauliflower in the fresh or frozen section of the supermarket. If your "rice" is frozen and in chunks, place in a microwave safe container and microwave in 30 second intervals until the chunks can break apart.
- In a large bowl, add thawed and cleaned shrimp, butter, garlic, parsley, salt and black pepper. Mix to combine
- Add the riced cauliflower to the bowl and mix to combine.
- Pour the shrimp and cauliflower mixture onto a sheet pan, making sure the shrimp are in a single layer. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes. Makes 4 servings

Just made this for dinner and it was delicious!! Used frozen cauliflower rice and frozen shrimp, fresh parsley! So so easy cooked it at 400 for 10 mins. Omg I loved it!! So pretty too! I wish I could post the pic 😉
Made this for dinner tonight, my husband has recently been dx as diabetic, insulin not necessary at this point but I am cooking all dinners to try to reverse his dx! This is the perfect d recipe for his low carb, sugar free diet? He absolutely loved it and was amazed at the taste of the riced cauliflower, he thought he was eating rice! I will be making this often, he ate the whole dish! Thankyou
Really good flavor! I did get the wrong size shrimp but the right amount...It was a little runny but nothing that will take away from the flavor. Very easy to make.
I love the recipe! So simple and delicious - I make it whenever I'm craving shrimp.
DELICIOUS SCAMPI S
thank you for your recipes!
I m gonna buy your ebook today, because during 6 months I had to bring my laptop or smartphone into the kitchen, and click and scroll to see what I need and how to do it, the eblook I can print and put it before me, so now I m gonna look how too order the book, greetings from Belgium
Easy and Delicious! I will make this often.
Amazing! Used frozen cauliflower and frozen shrimp turned out perfectly! Also super easy! Thank you for the recipe! Perfect Keto meal.
Please tell me what I’m doing wrong!! Super great flavor, but my cauliflower is mushy. Thanks for your help.
The cauliflower is not going to be crispy
This was absolutely amazing AND super easy! It was our first cauliflower rice dish and we loved it. This tastes just like shrimp scampi and I can't wait to make it again.
I am so happy to hear that!
C Wells says
This was Divine and SO fast and easy. I used fresh cauliflower that I riced along w fresh parsley. Added sea salt to mixture before baking.
Jocelyn M says
In the video it shows adding the melted butter etc. into the cauli-rice yet in your recipe instruction you say to add the raw shrimp and butter mixture together in a large bowl and mix to combine. Does it make any difference which way round I do it?
It doesn't make any difference
That was sooooo easy and soooooo delicious !!!
My husband loved it 2.
Recipe is a keeper
I made this tonight and it was AWESOME! I'm cooking for one, so I halved the recipe, used the same amount of garlic as the full recipe, and added more salt and seasonings. WONDERFUL!
Cindy K says
Just made this and it was amazing! Thanks for the recipe!
I just made half with one bag of Trader Joe's cauliflower rice. I also used basil since I didn't have dried parsley on hand. Once I had it on the sheet I sprinkled garlic powder and Trader Joe's 21 Seasoning Salute. Will be making this again and again!
423 cal per serving - how much is in each serving? Cheers and I love that you are making this easier for the rest of us ‘Ketos’.
1/4 of the recipe. Thank you!
Rose Rowlee says
Do you cook the rice frozen
yes, it was still frozen
Just made this tonight and it was a hit! The garlic and parsley flavored the plain cauliflower rice perfectly! Gonna add this to the weekly rotation. Thanks for sharing!
Can this be made in a skillet on the stove?
Yes, that should work just fine
Bobbi Woomum says
Anyone try this?
How many bags of the frozen riced cauliflower equal a head? the ones Ive bought are usually 16-20 oz?
I would guess 2
The frozen shrimp - is it cooked or raw?
This looks amazing and I can't wait to try it!
It's raw frozen shrimp ?
