These Whole30 shrimp recipes make following the diet even easier.
Shrimp is one of my favorite Whole30-friendly proteins. It’s full of nutrients, protein, and it’s delicious in so many recipes!
If you’re not familiar with Whole30, it’s a detox diet to reset your body.
Rather than focusing on weight loss, Whole30 helps to resolve underlying issues related to your diet.
Cut out the carbs and processed foods and say hello to a healthier eating lifestyle.
These recipes are designed to retrain your relationship with food!
From veggie skillets to simple fajitas, there’s no lack of diversity here.
Shrimp is an excellent choice for someone on a Whole30 diet!
It’s time to reset your body and mindset with food with 17 of my favorite Whole30 shrimp recipes.
1. Tuscan Garlic Shrimp
The best part about eating clean is how quickly you can make a delicious dinner! Cue this flavorful Tuscan shrimp recipe.
The flavorful garlic and sun-dried tomato sauce is thickened with tapioca starch.

If you can resist the crispy fried shrimp coated in a spicy cream sauce, you’re stronger than me.
These are totally Whole30-friendly and so easy to make.
Dip the shrimp in eggs first, then toss them in a tapioca and arrowroot flour mixture.
Fry them in coconut or avocado oil until crispy and golden.
Don’t forget to toss the shrimp in the savory and spicy sauce! That’s where the second “bang” comes in.
