So how do you make bag bang shrimp low carb and keto friendly?  First we have to use a different breading.  Traditional bang bang shrimp is fried with cornstarch, like a tempura.  To cut out the carbs, we are either going to use a combo of parmesan cheese and almond flour, or crumbled pork rings.  Your choice!

I have used the crumbled pork rinds in my Keto chicken nuggets and in my Air Fryer Pork Chops.  They are both delicious!

For the parmesan and almond flour dredge, I put everything in a food processor and pulsed it to get a course crumb.

You would also do the same thing with the pork rinds!

So here is our dredging station.  We’ve got a beaten egg, our dredge mixture, and 1 pound of peeled and deveined shrimp.  To keep things simple, I just dumped the beaten egg onto the shrimp.

Now put a shrimp in the crump mixture and coat it, then place it into the air fryer, or set aside if you are pan frying.

You may have to cook these in 2 batches.  I have a 6 quart air fryer and I could fit 9 jumbo shrimp.

To cook these in the air fryer, I did 360F for 4 minutes, then 400F for 4 minutes.  They were perfect!

Keep in mind, my shrimp were quite large.  If you use smaller shrimp, you would need to adjust your time.

Now we need to make the sauce!  This sauce is incredible!  It includes mayo, Sriracha, lime juice, rice vinegar, garlic powder, soy sauce, Swerve, and ginger.  Please see the notes in the recipe for  a weight watchers friendly option.

Now just dip each one in the sauce and try not to eat them all!

To bake these in the oven, lay them all out on a lined sheet pan after breading.  Bake in a 400F oven for 10 minutes, then Hi broil until they start to brown.  Flip and broil for a few minutes more.

    So So Good!!! I just finished eating this and it is now my favorite keto shrimp recipe! The shrimp coating was crunchy and I couldn’t tell it wasn’t made with flour. The sauce was not too hot. The entire recipe was super easy and quick to make. I will be making this often! Thanks for the recipe

      This was DELICIOUS!! One of the best things I’ve ever made! I made three variations of the batter — almond flour, coconut flour, and hemp hearts. While all were tasty, everyone loved the hemp hearts version the most. We made these as lettuce cups and this was a huge hit with everyone. Also, the sauce is addicting and can be used in a number of different ways. This whole recipe is soon to be in high rotation at my house!

    Could these be baked in the oven? Or should they be pan fried with grease if I don’t have an air fryer?
