HOW TO MAKE THESE EASY KETO APPETIZERS

Ingredients for low carb appetizer

Let’s get started!

We need to get all of our components ready to assembles.

First take your seven slices of cooked bacon and cut into 1/3rds.

Now take your one cucumber roughly 10 inches long and cut into 1/2 inch slices.

FOR THE GUACAMOLE:

Add all the ingredients for the guacamole to a food processor and pulse until all combined.

You want to make sure to be just a little chunky.

FOR THE SHRIMP:

Season both sides of the shrimp with salt, pepper and cumin.

Heat the butter in a large skillet over medium high heat.

Sear the shrimp on both sides until no longer opaque.

Remove the skillet from the heat and set aside.

TO ASSEMBLE:

Lay out the cucumber slices on a platter and season with salt.

Top with one slice of bacon followed by a spoonful of guacamole.

Finish off with shrimp and secure with a toothpick.  We stuck the toothpick right in the center of the shrimp.  If you try to put the toothpick through the shrimp, guacamole will get squeezed out and mess up your keto appetizers!

See! I told you that this recipe wasn’t your average finger food! Looks Yummy!
