THIS is a game changer! Seriously. Let’s start from the beginning.

I’ve tried Shirataki noodles about 5 times now and this is the only time I’ve ever gotten past bite number 3 –  let alone finish a whole plate, a whole bag (which is about 2 servings).

If you’ve  tried Shirataki noodles before then you know they can be unpleasant – that ends now!


  • shirataki noodles (pasta zero)
  • shrimp
  • green onions
  • garlic powder
  • cayenne powder
  • oil
  • soy sauce (Kikkoman)


  • Put some water to boil and add garlic powder to it. A few shakes.
  • Don’t smell the noodles.
  • Rinse the noodles in cold water.
  • After you rinse the noodles, rinse them again 🙂
  • They’re usually really long so I cut them up at this point and set them aside.
  • Prepare the shrimp: (mine were frozen already cooked)
    • defrost and remove the tail
    • mix with oil, garlic powder and cayenne powder
  • Add rinsed noodles to BOILING water and let them cook for 5 minutes.
  • Cook the shrimp (not very long, don’t want it too rubbery)
  • Strain noodles, remove shrimp (leave a little bit of the juices) from pan and put the noodles in the pan.
  • Add green onions and soy sauce, stir till the color of the noodles change.
  • Add the shrimp back and just stir for a little on  low heat.
  • Serve, consume and realize noodles on Keto is possible!


The key thing here is to boil the noodles in garlic water!! Thank you @100lbchallenge for the tip!

Frozen shrimp is not ideal for this but it was all I had, I’ll buy raw shrimp next time.

I had an old packet of Cayenne Pepper Sauce you get from Chinese take out and used that, need to find it in bottle or make my own.

This was GREAT! I vow to make an edible Italian dish with Shirataki noodles!
