Low Carb Clam Chowder Recipe

 

What You Need:

3 strips of thickly sliced bacon

1 med onion (chopped into small pieces)

2 med stalks of celery (chopped into small pieces)

2 cloves of pressed or minced garlic

1/4 tsp of black pepper

3/4 tsp of Old Bay Seasoning*

Low-carb thickener

3/4 cup of heavy cream

3/4 cup of unsweetened soy milk**

1 cup of clam juice

3 cups of cauliflower (chopped)

2 6½ oz cans of chopped clams

1 tsp of dried thyme or 1 Tbsp of fresh thyme

2 Tbsp of fresh parsley (minced)

 

* If you like your soup a bit spicy you can use 1 tsp.

** If you prefer to not use soy, you can use regular milk, half and half, or water.

 

What To Do:

First, chop your bacon into little cubes and cook them until they are crisp. I prefer to cook them in the soup pot. Then take out your bacon (I find that a slotted spoon works best) and pour out all but a Tbsp of that rendered fat. Next you’ll want to fry your celery and onion until it starts to soften. Then add garlic and your spices EXCEPT for the thyme. Stir everything and cook it for a good minute. Now add your liquids and stir it. Then you’ll need to add your low-carb thickener at this point. I really like adding it slowly. I shake it through a strainer and also whisk it in to keep it from clumping. You’ll want to stop a bit before it is as thick as you like it. It keeps thickening as it continues to heat. Then turn off the heat when it begins to simmer.

Next, you’ll boil, steam or microwave your cauliflower until it is fork tender, and drain. Now add the thyme, parsley, cauliflower, bacon and clams to the mixture. Bring up the heat a bit again until it is just at a simmer.

This recipe yields 6 servings.

Low Carb Foods Coconut Shrimp Recipe

 

 

 

This is a sugar free version of the coconut shrimp dish. Another great thing about this recipe version is that it also fits in the low carb foods lifestyle! This dish can be used as a party food, an appetizer, or even as your main course. In this recipe there is a bit of sweetener your coating, simply because most popular restaurant versions do have a sweet taste to them, however this is totally optional.

 

 

 

What you’ll need:

1 lb of large raw shrimp (peeled and deveined)

2/3 cup of coconut flour

1/4 tsp of cayenne pepper

1/4 tsp of black pepper

1 tsp of salt

2 eggs

2 Tbsp of water

1/2 cup of coconut (shredded and unsweetened)

Cooking oil of your choice

*Optional sugar sub that is = to 1Tbsp of sugar

How To Cook It:

First, mix the coconut flour with the salt and cayenne and black peppers. Then whisk your eggs (I used a fork) in a small sized dish, and then mix with the water. This is where you will add your sweetener if you want. Now put the shredded coconut in a separate bowl. Put some of the cooking oil in a large skillet to where it is about 3/4 inches in depth. Then heat your oil to about 350-360 degrees F. (*TIP* the oil is ready if when you put the tip of a wooden spoon handle in the oil, it makes bubbles around it.)

Now, take the shrimp by the tail, and roll it in the coconut flour. You’ll then shake it to get most of the flour off. Next dip the shrimp in the egg, and again shake off any excess. Finally, you’ll roll it in the shredded coconut. Fry your shrimp until they are golden on each side. This should take about 2 mins on each side. Try not to crowd the pan because this will cause the oil’s temp to drop. This will allow more oil to be absorbed by the shrimp and will make them very greasy and less healthy. When turning and removing the shrimp I think to us tongs, but you can use whatever works best for you. Now, remove your shrimp from the pan on to a paper towel covered plate or on a cooling rack. Serve and enjoy!

 

**In the original recipe I noticed it called for 1/3 cup of coconut flour, but I found if 2/3 cup was used I liked it better because there was a better coating on my shrimp. You can do what you prefer.
