What could be more Australian than a grilled prawn on the BBQ? In summer the BBQ is a great cooking option and these keto shrimp are perfect for it. This meal is super delicious and super low carb, so it is a win win.
Keto Shrimp (Prawns)
We have never been great at eating a lot of fish and seafood in our diet. These marinated BBQ prawns have become a regular in our diet now over summer. These prawns would also pair really well with this roasted capsicum and zucchini salad.
In Australia, we use the term prawns opposed to the American term shrimp. You may remember the Aussie commercial with Paul Hogan that used the slogan, ‘throw another shrimp on the barbie’. Well, in Australia you would never hear this said!
BBQ or grilling
We really enjoy cooking a lot of our meats on the BBQ. Seafood is an excellent option to grill on the BBQ as it adds a delicious charred flavour to them. Other foods I love to grill are steaks, burgers, bacon, eggs and halloumi.
In Australia, we love to BBQ especially in the summer. Having our friends over for a BBQ is one of our favourite ways to entertain and these keto shrimp will definitely be on the menu.
What’s your favourite way to cook seafood? Let us know in the comments below. We are always looking for new ways to add seafood to our weekly meal plan.
Post your BBQ prawns on Facebook or Instagram and tag us @havebutterwilltravel as we would love to see how they turned out!
