Garlic Buffalo Shrimp

How to make the best garlic buffalo shrimp recipe - This healthy and simple recipe is easy to saute in a stir fry skillet or pan on the stove. Adjust the amount of hot sauce to your own spicy preference. Keto, paleo, and low carb.

I eat a lot of seafood, at least three times a week. It's got a tremendous amount of protein for not too many calories, and I just like it.

I also love spicy foods. When I was young, I thought the spicier, the better, but in my old age {cough} I prefer things a little on the milder side. Still, I like big, bold flavors, and this garlic buffalo shrimp has just that.

Even with the spicy hot sauce in the recipe, I like to sprinkle extra over my shrimp and serve them with a puddle of blue cheese salad dressing for that authentic buffalo wings flavor. The salad dressing brings a layer of creaminess to the shrimp I think. I use Bolthouse Farms because it has only 35 calories per tablespoon, compared to well over 100 for traditional blue cheese. It's not as thick or as rich, but it has a good flavor.

Because I am calorie-conscious, these shrimp are neither breaded nor deep-fried. While those would probably taste better, I don't really miss them in the final dish. It's spicy and rich and good just the way it is, without the extra carbs and calories.
