Shrimp Stir-fry with Shirataki Noodles (keto and low carb)
This healthy shrimp Stir-fry with Shirataki Noodles is an easy low-carb and keto friendly go-to for my family on busy weeknights.
What are shirataki noodles?
Love the lo mein, but hate the carbs? Look no further than our old pal Shirataki noodles. The tofu kind (my fave) are made from the konjac yam and tofu.
Where can I find shirataki noodles in Wal-Mart or Kroger?
I live in a rural area, so finding them can be quite the challenge at times.
- If you’re shopping at Kroger, you’ll typically find them in the health food aisle next to the vegan items and organic yogurt.
- If you’re shopping at Wal-Mart, you’ll find them next to the packaged fruit and salad mixes.
No luck? If you STILL can’t find them, try Amazon:

How Many Carbs are in Shirataki noodles?
The tofu version only has about 1 gram net carbs and 10 calories and incorporates all the flavors surrounding them.
How do I prepare shirataki noodles?
To prepare shirataki noodles for stir fry, I place them in a colander and give them a toss under cold water for a few minutes. Not bad for prep time, eh?
Do shirataki noodles smell?
Yes, that is their natural aroma from the konjac plant they’re made from.
I cannot stress this enough- you must wash them in a coriander for a couple of minutes before the smell dissipates.
Not to worry though, whatever sauce they’re cooked with with soon attach to the noodles and they’ll taste just like the real deal.
Easy shrimp stir-fry with shirataki noodle sauce
For this recipe, I wanted a creamy, buttery mushroom sauce to really bring out the flavor of the shrimp. If you are not a mushroom fan, you can easily sub in broccoli or zucchini.
This recipe is as easy as it gets, with minimal prep and filling comfort. Enjoy!

When do you add the cream? It never says in the instructions.
I believe it says to add after you add the noodles.
Made this without the shrimp as a side to another seafood dish, so reduced the cream a little and cut the seafood seasoning in half (homemade, which actually turned out good after a few tweaks; most call for WAY TOO MUCH celery salt),and no garlic powder (I can’t have it). Also added some fish sauce and lemon juice to balance flavors bc the seasoning was still a little too salty. VERY DELICIOUS!
