My daughter and I love shrimp. We both eat a low carb diet so for this reason I make keto shrimp often at my house. This shrimp recipe is low carb and delicious Shrimp is packed with proteins and full of flavor.
Shirataki noodles come in many different sizes and shapes. My favorite is the fettuccini and rice variety. The word “shirataki” means “white waterfall”, describing the appearance of these noodles.
THEY’RE MADE OF WHAT?
When I first heard of shirataki noodles I assumed they were made out of Shirataki mushrooms however they are not. Shirataki noodles are actually made from the konjac yam (devil’s tongue yam or elephant yam). Shirataki noodles are thin, translucent, gelatinous, traditional Japanese noodles.
Once rinsed, Shirataki noodles have very little flavor of their own and for this reason they are best marinated. Shirataki noodles and rice are very low in carbohydrates and calories. For this reason Shirataki noodles are very popular to low carb keto dieters.
