Easy Party Shrimp Recipe - Low Carb & Healthy
- 1 envelope (3 ounces, or 85 g) crab boil spices
- 12 ounces (360 ml) light beer
- 1 tablespoon (18 g) salt or Vege-Sal
- 4 pounds (2 kg) easy-peel shrimp or frozen shrimp, unthawed
Drop the crab boil spice net bag in your slow cooker and pour in the beer.
Add the salt or Vege-Sal and stir.
Add the shrimp.
Add just enough water to bring the liquid level up to the top of the shrimp.
Cover the slow cooker, set it to high, and let it cook for 1 to 2 hours or until the shrimp are pink through.
Set the pot to low.
Serve the shrimp straight from the slow cooker with low-carb cocktail sauce, lemon butter, or mustard and mayo stirred together, for dipping.
Or heck, serve all three.
This is enough shrimp for a good-sized party, at least 15 or 20 people, if you're serving it as an appetizer/party snack.
Each with 18 g protein, 1 g carbohydrate, 0 g dietary fiber, 1 g usable carbs. (Analysis does not include any dipping sauces.)
