Keto Coconut Curry Shrimp and Zoodles have a homemade curry sauce that is smooth and creamy with just enough of that "sweet heat", to make it absolutely irresistible! The nutty flavor comes from the MaraNatha Creamy No Stir Almond Butter that blended so well with the coconut and spice flavors!
Being on the Keto diet has been quite the learning experience. However, one thing that I love about Keto is almond butter is not off limits! As a matter of fact, it is used in a lot of Keto recipes!
This nut butter is super creamy and smooth and I love that it is no stir. It is a great snack time solution. Hook it up with a little celery as we do! It cures my craving for a creamy and crunchy treat at the same time. We absolutely love this high-quality natural and organic butter.
When it came to this Coconut Curry Shrimp and Zoodle recipe, Grumpy he couldn't stop raving about it! He loved the sauce and even helped me out with taste testing as I was putting it together for this post to make sure it had just enough of everything. He said it had the perfect amount of heat, nut butter, and coconut flavor combination.
With all that delicious sauce you need some noodles. Zucchini noodles (aka zoodles) are the perfect complement to this dish and we did not miss the pasta at all! You can find zoodles premade in the store, or if you have a spiralizer, you can make your own.
How do you keep your zucchini noodles from making your sauce watery?
Zucchini Noodles, aka Zoodles, release a lot of liquid when cooking and can get soggy. For this reason, I did not add them to my sauce to cook them. Rather, I microwaved mine in the steamer for about 3 minutes. This made them toothsome and more pasta-like. You can, however, cook them in a separate skillet for 3-4 minutes if you don't have the means to steam, then do as I did and toss the sauce and noodles together in a bowl.

For the Sauce
- 1 cup full fat coconut milk
- ½ cup chicken broth
- ½ cup almond butter
- ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon fish sauce
- 2 tablespoons coconut aminos
- ½ teaspoon fresh grated ginger
For the Shrimp
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- 1 pound shrimp peeled, deveined, and tails removed
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- ½ teaspoon chili powder
- salt and pepper to taste
- Whisk together coconut milk, chicken broth, almond butter over medium heat until smooth. Add red pepper flakes through fresh ginger and bring to a low simmer. Simmer for 7-10 minutes or until the mixture begins to thicken. Remove from heat and set aside.
- Toss shrimp with 1 teaspoon cumin, ½ teaspoon chili powder, salt, and pepper. Heat coconut oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook shrimp until pink, about 4-5 minutes depending on the size of shrimp. Remove from heat and add to the peanut sauce.
- In a microwave-safe steamer, add zoodles and cook on high for 3 minutes. Drain and place zoodles in a serving bowl. Alternatively, you can steam cook the zoodles on your stovetop in a large saucepan about 4-5 minutes, tossing every couple of minutes to evenly steam zoodles. Remove from the saucepan using tongs and place them in a serving bowl.
- Toss shrimp and sauce mixture with zoodles. Garnish with slivered almonds, cilantro, and a little fresh squeezed lime juice if desired.
I'm allergic to fish. What can you substitute for the fish sauce?
Hi Daniel, you could substitute soy sauce for the fish sauce.

Coconut curry is so creamy and delicious! It's also very filling. This one looks great!
I've been meaning to try zoodles and this looks like the perfect opportunity.

I love everything curry! I must try this!!
I've never had any chance to taste zoodles. These look amazing. I have almost all ingredients at home, so I'll go for it on weekend.

I really should get into making zoodles! We always end up with zucchini coming out of our ears by mid-summer, and zoodles would be a great way to use 'em up. Also, I love this curry! It looks so creamy and delicious. I'm thinking that's one excellent comfort food with all of those flavors in there. And I love how grumpy helped with the taste testing here! I often call Laura in for help, too...after all, cooking should be a communal experience, right? 🙂
Absolutely, cooking should be communal. LOL Also, taste testing is one of Grumpy's favorite ways of participating. ha! I really love the zoodles and have them on our menut for tonight!
My husband LOVES shrimp but I'm still trying to get him into zoodles, so I feel like this recipe would be perfect!
Hey Liz, steaming these for the short amount of time really made these seem closer to pasta because it still had bite and crunch but wasn't raw. It also eliminated my watery sauce issue! 🙂 I hope you try the recipe and that he loves the zoodles!
YUM, these really sound SO good! I LOVE how easy and delicious this is! Is good food and this looks like one of the BEST. I definitely want to try your recipe and I'm sure it is very tasty. Thank you for sharing this great recipe!
This looks delicious! Every time I see a recipe like this I wish I had the spiralizer.
Julia! You can by the zoodles premade now in the stores 🙂

This looks wonderful! I love adding coconut to curries and do it regularly; it just adds an extra something! I don't make many curries with shrimp though, so that needs to change as this looks fabulous!
