This easy and delicious Brazilian Keto Shrimp Stew comforts you like you need when the weather cools down and you feel like nesting, but it also stimulates you with tropical flavor and a fiery heat that makes you wish you were eating it on some beach with your toes jammed into the sand and a cold beer by your side.
One thing I love about stews is that they are relatively easy to make low carb and gluten free, without sacrificing flavor or texture.
