How Many Carbs are in Shrimp?
Shrimp is an awesome low carb option. In 3 ounces of shrimp there is just .02g carbs. With these grilled shrimp skewers there are just 4g net carbs per serving and each serving is 1/2 a pound of shrimp. Which is a large amount of shrimp but can easily be adjusted depending on what you are serving with the shrimp.
How Can I Make this Recipe without a Grill?
If you do not have a grill you can use a grill pan on the stove over medium-high heat. You also can use the oven on broil and broil for 2-3 minutes per side.
