KETO SHRIMP IN CREAMY TOMATO SAUCE WITH SHIRATAKI FETTUCCINI

Are you missing your pasta on the ketogenic diet? Then I have the perfect keto friendly replacement for you: Shirataki noodles!

Shirataki noodles are made from the Japanese konjac yam (aka Devil’s tongue or elephant yam), which is a fibrous root tuber and are almost zero carbs! Glucomannan is the starch extracted from the kojac yam which is formed into noodles.

Shirataki noodles are typically thin, translucent and gelatinous. Shirataki noodles are also known as miracle noodles. There are different kinds of shirataki noodles such as angel hair, fettuccini, linguini and even in rice form!

The best thing about these noodles is that they are so easy to prepare. They usually come in a bag. All you need to do is rinse them with water and they are ready to eat! They make a perfect fast meal. This shrimp recipe can be made in under 15 minutes!
