5-min. Keto/Low-Carb Cheesy Pesto Tomato Shrimp
Updated: Aug 26
This is a really quick easy high protein meal! It has about 24 grams of protein if you use 4 oz. of shrimp and 1 oz. of mozzarella.
I used frozen shrimp here. You can use fresh obviously!
What I used:
- 4 oz. of shrimp
- Pesto (~1 teaspoon)
- Marinara sauce (~3 tablespoons)
- Fresh mozzarella (~1 tablespoon)
- Cooking spray
- Salt & pepper to taste
1.) After thawing them, I sauted the shrimp on medium-high for ~2 min. on each side.
2.) While the shrimp were on the stove, I sprayed the plate I was going to use with cooking spray.
-- This helps keep the cheese from sticking to the plate.
3.) I poured the marinara sauce, a little pesto and I put little chunks of mozzarella on the plate.
4.) I microwaved the plate for ~1 min. until the cheese was melt-y, but not burnt.
5.) Once the shrimp were done, I added them on top with a little salt & pepper to taste.
That's it! Give it a try! We are good at this!
The splatter from the microwave even looks artistic. Haha! :)
