Keto Shrimp Avocado Salad is a delicious salad to enjoy for lunch or dinner. It is made with perfectly seasoned shrimp, avocado, and walnuts. I love this salad, and it is a recipe to enjoy on the keto diet.

Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 5 minutes
Serves: 4


2 T. unsalted butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 lbs. shrimp, peeled and deveined
½ t. ground cumin
Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
1 large avocados, diced
3 T. extra virgin olive oil
1½ T. fresh lime juice
2 T. fresh cilantro, chopped
4 c. baby arugula
8 grape tomatoes
24 large green olives
3 oz. walnuts
1 large lime, cut into 8 wedges


  1. Add the butter and minced garlic to a large skillet and set over medium heat. Cook for one minute, stirring frequently.
  2. Add the shrimp and the ground cumin to the skillet. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and stir to combine. Continue cooking for 2-3 minutes, or just until the shrimp changes color and starts to curl. Remove from heat and set aside.
  3. Once cool, roughly chop the shrimp and transfer to a large bowl. Add the avocado, olive oil, lime juice, and fresh cilantro to the bowl. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and gently toss to combine.
  4. Divide the baby arugula between four meal prep containers or serving plates. Add one-fourth of the avocado shrimp mixture to each container or plate. Evenly divide the green olives, walnuts, and lime wedges between each portion. Serve immediately or refrigerate for later. Enjoy!
