This is seafood that’s fit for royalty.

This low-carb meal combines crab, scallops, shrimp, and a rich and creamy imperial sauce. The golden crust comes from the sauce when baking.

Enjoy a feast fit for a king while staying on track. Plus, it’s super easy to make and takes less than 20 minutes of cook time!

2. Keto Seafood Gratin

I still wonder why we don’t call it great-in instead of gratin.

The star of this recipe is the creamy, cheesy, keto gratin.

Cauliflower rice, heavy cream, and parmesan cheese come together and are combined with your favorite seafood.

This recipe is great with scallops, shrimp, lobster, squid, mussels, or any seafood you have on hand!

3. Lobster Bisque

Lobster bisque is hands down one of my favorite soups!

This recipe is not keto by format, but the flour roux can easily be replaced with xanthan gum for keto bisque.

Once your bisque base is made, add ¼ teaspoon of xanthan gum at a time and stir well until you reach the desired consistency.

4. Keto Shrimp Boil

Who knew the bayou could be so delicious without carbs?

Enter your email below & we'll send it straight to your inbox.

This is a traditional shrimp boil, but rather than potatoes and corn, you’ll use cauliflower and zucchini.

The result is as satisfying and flavorful as traditional shrimp boils, but with no carbs!

If you like a spicier dish, add in your favorite peppers and a dash of extra Cajun seasoning!

5. Keto Cioppino

Three words: Italian seafood stew. 

If you love seafood, then you’ll love keto cioppino! This hearty stew is loaded with all your favorite seafood ingredients, but without the carbs. 

Don’t forget the fish paste, as it adds a depth of flavor that is unparalleled in this cioppino.

6. Keto Seafood Dip

I’m always looking for new dips for fresh veggies, and this dip does not disappoint!

The layers of flavor in this dish are a party favorite.

It’s balanced with cream cheese, green chiles, pepper jack cheese, spinach, and of course shrimp and crab meat!

7. Crispy Keto Crab Cakes

Come one, come all, crispy keto crab cakes are here for all!

Frying up your favorite fish cakes can seem intimidating, but these crab cakes are so easy and full of rich flavor! 

Of course, we can’t dismiss the health benefits of replacing bread crumbs with almond flour. 

8. Keto Seafood Chowder

Cold winters call for creamy, thick chowders, so you know this keto seafood chowder will warm your soul!

Honestly, seafood chowder doesn’t get easier than this recipe, with just over 10 ingredients and one big pot.

Your body will love the hug from inside with the beautiful creamy chowder base, flaky fish, and hearty shrimp.

If you like a little extra heat, you can be a little heavy-handed with the chili peppers, too!

9. Low-Carb Keto Shrimp Scampi With Zucchini Noodles

Zucchini noodles have to be my favorite low-carb alternate, so of course, I love to load up a big bowl of this fabulous feast!

The shrimp is loaded with garlic and butter and is perfect on top of a big bowl of zoodles. 

If you still need a reason to make this recipe, the ease of wholesome meal prep is definitely an incredible perk!

10. Keto Garlic Butter Salmon

I love simple salmon as much as the next person, but I’m salivating just thinking about the creamy, cheesy sauce this salmon is cooked in.

With a handful of ingredients like butter, heavy cream, spinach, and parmesan cheese, you’ll have a heavenly, rustic sauce for salmon. 

11. Low-Carb Shrimp Enchiladas

Okay, so I know low-carb tortillas aren’t technically keto, but the creamy, bubbly shrimp filling is worth its weight in gold.

Honestly, you could bake up this creamy shrimp combination and forego the tortillas altogether. The shrimp is that good and so easy to make!

12. Crispy Keto Fish Tacos

Okay, I know what I’m having for dinner! 

Sure, pre-breaded fish is easy, but why sacrifice flavor and health for convenience? 

In just a few ingredients, your plate will be loaded with fish tacos that professional chefs and dieticians both can rave over! 

Of course, I can’t leave my fish tacos hanging without a zesty, tangy lime and cilantro slaw.

13. Seafood Paella

Hasta la vista, arroz. 

Paella is one of those flavor-loaded rice dishes that may seem difficult to translate to a keto lifestyle. With a little will and a big pan, anything is possible!

The clams and shrimp are perfectly seasoned, and the riced cauliflower soaks up so much flavor. You’ll wonder why you ever questioned its flexibility.

14. Keto Shrimp and Broccoli Stir-Fry

Stir-fry is one of those busy weeknight dinners I can always lean on.

You’ll love the flavor and texture with bell pepper, shrimp, broccoli, and cashews in this delicious stir fry.

If you’re looking for that classic takeout feel, steam some riced cauliflower to pair with this flavorful stir-fry!

15. Keto Fried Fish

This keto fried fish is almost as good as the real deal!

Parmesan cheese and almond flour are the perfect crust for fried fish. Honestly, the flavor is so much better than any carb-filled fried fish could ever be.

Do yourself a huge favor and give this recipe a try next time you’re craving savory, crispy fish!

16. Grilled Lobster Tail

Grilling season in my house is definitely not isolated to warm summer months. 

Needless to say, grilled lobster tail is one cuisine you can enjoy year-round. 

After you butterfly the lobster tails, you simply grill for a few minutes on each side. 

I love to serve lobster tails with a cauliflower mash and salad to balance out all the texture and flavor we love.

17. Low-Carb Almond Crusted Cod

Breaded fish is one of those delicious dinners I have a hard time letting go of.

So when I can find a healthy version that is full of flavor, I’m all in!

This almond crusted cod not only satisfies the crunch of breaded fish, but adds texture and flavor that simple breaded fish can’t match.

When crushing your almonds, you can easily customize the texture with a finer or coarser grain of almond to customize your cod filet!

18. Keto Fish Sticks

Fish sticks are a classic family recipe that we love to make guilt-free and healthy!

The breading is replaced with pork rind crumbs and coconut flour, making these low-carb, crunchy fish sticks a hit for eaters of all ages. 

I highly recommend the keto tartar sauce to add the finishing flavor to these fabulous homemade fish sticks!

19. Keto Fish Cakes

These fish cakes are the perfect keto comfort food to add to your menu.

Hearty, filling, and loaded with protein, these will leave you feeling fuller, longer. I love that they’re freezer-friendly, too.

You can easily crunch up your own pork rinds to mix with fresh fish, mayo, cheese, and seasoning. 

20. Pan-Seared Halibut With Garlic Butter Sauce

Who doesn’t love a five-ingredient dinner that’s ready in less than 20 minutes?

This recipe is one of my favorite seafood meal preps, so I love to make a big batch. 

Simply pan fry your halibut, then mix up your lemon, garlic, and butter in the pan to drizzle over the fish before serving.

I love this fish with a variety of steamed veggies, to add some diversity to my weekly meals.

21. Low-Carb Baked Seafood Casserole

I am determined to show up to my next potluck with this incredible seafood casserole. 

You’ll first poach the seafood in a seasoned white wine bath, then cook the leeks and celery in butter to assemble the base of the casserole. 

The creamy sauce is made with xanthan gum, butter, poaching liquid, and of course heavy cream.

The dish is topped off with a crunchy almond flour and parmesan mixture that bakes into a golden-brown crust. 

22. Keto Crab Rangoons

I know crab rangoons are an appetizer, but honestly, I could eat these for a meal on their own!

The trick to making rangoons keto-friendly is in the keto dough, made with mozzarella, cream cheese, almond flour, and psyllium husk powder. 

Add in the cheesy crab rangoon filling, fry, and enjoy. And then enjoy some more because these are irresistible.

23. Keto Mahi Mahi With Chili Lime Butter

Who said clean eating is boring?

While Mahi Mahi is delicious, this recipe is really centered around the delicious compound butter. 

Rather than traditional butter, you will mix up coconut oil, chili powder, and lime zest.

After pan cooking your fish of choice, you will serve it with a dollop of butter. 

The flavors are incredible, and delicious on salad, or served with your favorite steamed veggies!

24. Easy Keto Baked Tilapia

Tilapia is one of the most frugal, and easiest seafoods to incorporate into your keto diet.

Packed with vitamins, minerals, and flavor, this is a recipe you need to have on hand!

Your tilapia will form a beautiful crust when baking, with the seasoned mayo and asiago spread.

Simply mix up the ingredients, then spread them on your filets before baking.

This baked fish is fabulous with cauliflower rice, or even with a delicate salad.

25. Keto Mussels in Garlic Cream Sauce

Mussels are a true delicacy, and they’re even better when you can enjoy them without guilt!

These mussels are prepared in a garlicky white wine sauce that’s elevated with heavy cream.

The cream sauce takes on a bit of the seafood flavor, while also adding a rich and elegant texture to the mussels.
