KETO BANG BANG SHRIMP. With a classic bang bang sauce, fried shrimp coated and dinner is served in FIFTEEN minutes!
Note: In this recipe, I heard some of you were having trouble with the breading mixture , so I’ve had great results and completely re-worked it!
Before I started Keto, Bang Bang was one of my favorite dishes! To my previous recipe, I made a few adjustments to make it Keto friendly and it is certainly not lacking that wonderful flavor! When you are pressed for time, and delivers a spicy kick, it’s easy to throw together and serve !
WHAT’S IN KETO BANG BANG SHRIMP
Keto friendly oil for frying
WHAT IS OAT FIBER? IS OAT FIBER KETO?
From grinding the outer husks of oats, Oat Fiber is made. How healthy is oat fiber? Which doesn’t dissolve in water, it’s pure insoluble fiber and isn’t broken down in the digestive tract, so it is perfect for a Keto Diet and has zero net carbs. Why I use it so often because it helps give a more traditional texture .
WHAT IS A SUBSTITUTE FOR OAT FIBER?
It’s best to use oat fiber if you can to get the best results. Try a combination of psyllium husk powder and coconut flour if you’re unable to find it. You might have to add more liquid since both are very absorbent.
