  • Olive oil cooking spray
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 4 oz plain pork rinds, processed in food processor into crumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan
  • 16 oz jumbo shrimp (21-25 per lb., peeled and deveined, patted dry)


  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and spray it with olive oil.
  • In a medium bowl, lightly whisk the egg.
  • In another medium bowl, whisk the crushed pork rinds with the salt, pepper, garlic powder, paprika and Parmesan. Divide into two separate bowls – this will ensure the pork rind crumbs stay as dry as possible, making it easier to coat the shrimp.
  • Place a few shrimp at a time in the egg to coat. Allow excess egg to drip back, then roll each shrimp in the pork rind mixture.
  • Transfer the coated shrimp to the prepared baking sheet. Make sure they don’t touch each other.
  • Generously spray the shrimp with olive oil. Bake until cooked through, about 10 minutes. Serve the keto fried shrimp immediately.
