This Keto Sun Dried Tomato Shrimp Skillet is one of my new favorites. The cheesy and creamy sauce pairs so well with the sun dried tomatoes and shrimp. This truly is one of those recipes that smells so good while you are making it, you’ll wish you could bottle the aroma and turn it into a candle.

The hard and fast rule in the kitchen is cheese and seafood don’t go well together, but that’s not always the case. This recipe is packed with Italian flavor’s, but if you are reading this in Italy you’d probably think this is on par with Olive Garden for authenticity. However, it’s delicious and there are plenty of cultures that combine the two with fantastic results. In fact, Lauren and I are in Maine as I write this and I can guarantee there will be a keto lobster mac and cheese in my future.
