Keto Cheesy Shrimp & Roasted Brussels Sprouts

This Keto Cheesy Shrimp & Roasted Brussels Sprouts dish is so easy to make! The shrimp is comforting, while the brussels sprouts taste like candy, confirmed by my husband. Normally, I would never imagine vegetables tasting like candy. However, when roasted, they certainly do! I am actually not much of a fan of brussels sprouts, unless they are roasted. If you are on the fence about them, you’ll have to give these a try per my recipe and let me know what you think.

Keto Cheesy Shrimp & Roasted Brussels Sprouts Herbs

If you haven’t noticed, I have a slight obsession with parsley. I decided to really expand upon my herbs and choose thyme instead for this meal! Fortunately, it turned out great.

Herbs:

What are your favorite herbs?

Like I’ve said, I love parsley. I try to use fresh herbs, given the nutrition and health benefits tied to them. On hand, I usually have at least parsley, chives, and thyme. It’s amazing how many health benefits herbs offer. Check out the benefits of parsley here!

Unloading groceries today, the cats really showed their love of parsley. I have no idea what it is, but even my tuxedo cat, who’s indifferent to catnip and treats, wants parsley! Has this happened with any of your animals?? Any ideas why – besides from being cute?

We have never given our cats human food. We feed them a high protein, grain free, brand of food – for weight control. (It has limited carbs!) However, according to the ASPCA, parsley is safe for cats to eat. I am so tempted to give it to them, given their extreme preference for it!

Ingredients

Shrimp:

  • 36 Raw Black Tiger Shrimp *I used frozen, raw, tail on
  • 3/4 tsp Pink Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1/2 tsp Oregano
  • 1/2 tsp Chili Powder
  • Dash of Cayenne
  • 3 tbsp Unsalted Butter
  • 4 oz Goat Cheese Log, Montchevre
  • 3 oz Manchego Cheese
  • 1 tsp Fresh Thyme *Topping

Brussels Sprouts:

  • 2 cups Brussels Sprouts *I used a frozen bag
  • 2 tbsp olive oil *I used Avocado
  • 1 tsp Pink Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper

Instructions

Brussels Sprouts:

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F, 218 degrees C.
  • Begin to microwave brussels sprouts, according to package's instructions.
  • Once brussels sprouts are microwaved, cut them in half.
  • Place them on a baking sheet with a silicone mat (or parchment paper). Ensure they are spread out and not touching on baking sheet. Drizzle olive oil over the top of them.
  • Sprinkle salt and pepper over brussels sprouts, from a foot above the sprouts. This will ensure they are evenly coated with the salt and pepper.

  • Bake the brussels sprouts for 15 minutes. After 7 minutes, shake sheet for even browning.
  • Check them around 10 minutes to confirm if you want to cook them longer, given your preference. (Personally, I cooked for 15 minutes.)
  • Feel free to broil the brussels sprouts for about 5-10 minutes, to make them extra crispy! (Personally, I broiled for 5 minutes.) Remove from oven once done broiling.

Shrimp:

  • In a skillet, over medium-high heat, cook shrimp. Cook until just turning pink. (They will finish cooking later - and we don't want them overdone, just at a temperature able to remove tails.) Remove from skillet and set aside to cool.
  • Once shrimp are cooled enough, remove their tails. Add them back to skillet, over medium-low heat. Add seasonings: salt, pepper, oregano, chili powder, and dash of cayenne.

  • Also, add butter. Let the shrimp cook in the butter for a few minutes.
  • Next, add all cheese to shrimp mixture. Stir to completely incorporate. Once fully melted, remove from pan.
  • Serve brussels sprouts and shrimp; enjoy!!
