Keto Shrimp Po Boy

Keto Shrimp Po Boy

I miss New Orleans so much! I was scheduled to visit that amazing city this year to film cooking videos for Swerve but with Covid-19, that has been postponed. This New Orleans–inspired Keto Shrimp Po Boy Chaffle is deliciously filling and will take you back to New Orleans!


Most of you know I rarely go to the store!

Honestly, almost everything I used to make these Shrimp Po Boys was mailed to me! The shrimp, the chaffle maker, the avocado oil spray and the mayo! My life is busy enough! I save time (and money) by supporting companies I love and having things mailed to me!

I understand that life gets busy and sometimes we need to find shortcuts.

This is why I worked with my favorite keto companies to get coupon codes for all of you!

    Hello Maria, once again I’m in touble getting some of the ingredients since your trusted sponsor companies don’t ship to my door: instead of 2TBS of butter flavoured coconut oil/ bacon fat, can I use ghee? (If so, 2TBS as well?)
    For the chaffle:any substitution but also keeping the recipe dairy-free, instead of pork rinds?

    • Maria Emmerich says:

      Sorry about that! Yes, you can substitute the butter flavored coconut oil with bacon fat or ghee (ghee has a lower smoke point so beware or you will burn it). Sorry, I don’t have an alternate suggestion for a dairy free chaffle unless you are okay with using nut flours (which I don’t recommend for weight loss or healing). But, if that’s not a concern for you then this one is good: https://mariamindbodyhealth.com/keto-waffles/

    How many GRAMS is one cup pork rinds?
    Thanks so much.

    • Maria Emmerich says:

      I’m not 100% sure (I’m not home to measure) but according to cooksinfo.com 1 cup of pork rinds is 1/2 oz or 15g.
