This Low Carb Shrimp & Sausage Skillet is my go-to meal on a busy weeknight. It is absolutely packed with flavor and cooks all in one pan. We get a healthy and delicious meal on the table in no time at all and cleanup is a breeze. That is a win in my book, you will love having this recipe on hand!

This is one of those dishes that I could eat every week. It is so easy but so very yummy. This shrimp and sausage skillet has flavor, texture and is made with healthy ingredients. This recipe is Paleo, Keto and Whole30 compliant. Just make sure to check the labels on your sausage if you are doing a round of Whole30.

How To Serve This Dish:

In our family, we eat it as is! I just serve it in a bowl. But if you wanted to bulk it up a bit you could serve it over cauliflower rice to keep it both Keto and Whole30. It would be delicious over regular rice as well.

What Kind of Shrimp and Sausage do I use?

  • For Shrimp – I use and recommend large wild caught shrimp that have been peeled and deveined. You also want raw, not pre-cooked. And I personally love to keep the tails on for added flavor and presentation, but you can get tail-off shrimp as well
  • For Sausage – I love to use andouille for this recipe. It pairs so well with the shrimp and with the seasonings. If you can’t find andouille that is Whole30 compliant, I also love and use smoked sausage (kielbasa).

    Excellent recipe!! Very delicious. I served this on a bed of mashed plantains which is whole30 compliant. I used some of the grease from the sausage frying to soften the mashed boiled plantains and added a little water.

    I loved this dish. So easy to make and so delicious. I made it for the first time two weeks ago, and my husband is already asking me to cook it again. A definite hit in our house.

    Just finished eating this tonight. Big flavor! Found grass fed beef smoked sausage (paleo friendly) soo good! Thanks for another great recipe!

    I made it a little less keto (and a lot more lazy lol) with a frozen stir-fry vegetable mix. I used the same seasonings/meat. THIS IS DELICIOUS! And toddler approved!

    Fantastic recipe, I made some cauliflower yellow rice (with peas and carrots) and this recipe was doubled and made great meal prep. I am so happy to have found this site. Thanks so much
