Let’s get started!

HOW TO MAKE KETO SHRIMP AND CHEESY GRITS

First. Pulse the cooked cauliflower in a food processor until it resembles grits consistency.  I like to use frozen cauliflower rice that can be steamed in the bag.  You could use fresh cauliflower that would need to be steamed as well.

Dump the cauliflower in a sauce pan and add in the butter, heavy cream and cheddar cheese.

Start to melt the cheese and butter.

The grits will be nice and creamy.

Season with salt and pepper to taste.

In large skillet over medium high heat cook the bacon until crisp.

Drain on a paper towels and set aside to cool.

Crumble when cooled.

Now in the same skillet used to cook the bacon, reduce the heat to medium and add in the shrimp and garlic.

Cook the shrimp on both sides until pink opaque.

Top with the chopped parsley.
