Swapping the Shirataki noodles for the pasta noodles is going to save you a ton of carbs! 

And honestly, you can barely tell the difference with the swap!

The recipe makes 1 to 2 servings, so based on 2 servings it comes out to only 7 net carbs per serving!

Low Carb Shrimp Alfredo Recipe with Tofu Shirataki Noodles

Low Carb Shrimp Alfredo Fettuccine with Tofu Shirataki Noodles

So, I’ve been eating low carb/keto for over a year now.

As I’ve said before, eating low carb is hard!

I miss rice, chips, potatoes, bread & pasta like nobody’s business!

BUT, how lucky are we to live during a time when people are so creative with their foods and can make pretty darn good substitutions?

These substitutions make eating low carb a lot more bearable for sure.

So, when I discovered Shirataki noodles, I had to try them!

Actually, my friend Riri with Home Cooking Solutions has introduced me to Shirataki noodles whenever she cooks low carb meals for me. 

Turns out, I really like them!

So I decided it’s time for me to cook with them myself and make this Shrimp Alfredo Fettuccine recipe {inspired by Hungry Girl}.

Is there a difference between Shiratkai Noodles & Tofu Shirataki Noodles?

Absolutely!

I’ve personally never tried the straight-up traditional Shirataki Noodles {also called Miracle Noodles}.

However, from what I’ve read and heard, the texture is different.

Whereas Shirataki Noodles have a snap to them when you bite them, the Tofu Shirataki Noodles are somewhat chewier.

The overall consensus is that the tofu variety is a lot more like real noodles.

In addition, Tofu Shirataki Noodles:

  • Contain Soy
  • Are 10 calories per serving vs. 0 calories for regular shirataki noodles
  • Have 3 grams of carbs vs. less than 1 carb for regular shirataki noodles
  • Contain 2 grams of fiber vs. 0 fiber in regular shirataki noodles
  • Are sold in these forms: spaghetti, fettuccini, angel hair, & macaroni

Clearly, the winner for me is the tofu variety.

How Do You Make Shrimp Alfredo Fettuccine?

Right? It really sounds so fancy and complicated.

But, it’s so darn easy and takes no time at all to get it on the table!

Shrimp Alfredo Fettuccine Ingredients

Low Carb Shrimp Alfredo Fettuccine with Tofu Shirataki Noodles

The ingredients for this low carb Shrimp Alfredo Fettuccine recipe are:

  • 1 bag Tofu Shirataki Fettuccine Noodles
  • 8 oz shrimp 
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1 teaspoon sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 wedge Laughing Cow Creamy Swiss Cheese
  • 2 tsp Parmesan Cheese

Step 1: Pour Tofu Shirataki Noodles into colander & rinse, drain, & pat dry

Rinse & pat dry tofu shirataki noodles

Get a good colander like this one from Amazon: Stainless Steel Colander with Handle & Legs

I used paper towels to pat the noodles dry but it wasn’t very efficient, so I got a clean dish towel and used that instead.

Take note that you want to gently pat them dry, not smoosh the noodles.

Step 2: Cook Shrimp & Mushrooms

Cook shrimp and mushrooms

Pro tip: I used frozen pre-cooked shrimp. 

However, it wasn’t the best option for this recipe.

Indeed, the best option is to use fresh, raw shrimp.

Cook the shrimp and mushrooms in a large skillet {I prefer the stainless steel skillets (Amazon) without the non-stick coating} through for about 4 minutes.

Then set them aside on a plate.

Step 3: Cook & Stir Noodles, Sour Cream, Lemon Juice, Garlic, & Cheese Wedge in the Skillet

Make alfredo sauce with shirataki noodles

Make sure you spray the skillet again with non-stick spray.

Then add the noodles, sour cream, lemon juice, garlic, and cheese wedge.

Cook & stir well until the cheese is melted and the noodles are evenly coated.

This should take around 3 minutes.

Step 4: Stir in the Parmesan Cheese, Shrimp & Mushrooms and Cook Through

Finally, add in the cooked shrimp, mushrooms and parmesan cheese.

Then blend well, stirring for about 2 minutes until everything is heated through and ready to eat!

How bad is alfredo sauce for you?

Um, it’s pretty bad!

That’s why I love this “skinny” alfredo sauce!

It’s still creamy and I feel so much better eating it, knowing that I’m not breaking the carbohydrate bank.

Plus, it’s just as good, in my opinion and won’t make me feel like I just want to go straight to bed like regular starchy pasta makes me feel.
