Chef Brainy
What Started it all:
Shrimp, Okra, baking powder, blender

A delightful low-carb dish that combines the succulence of shrimp with the unique texture of okra. These fritters are crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, making for a perfect appetizer or main course. Easy to prepare and packed with flavor, they are sure to be a hit at your dinner table.


  • 1 pound of shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 cup of fresh okra, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Olive oil for frying


  1. Place the shrimp in a blender and pulse until finely chopped but not pureed. You want some texture remaining.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the chopped shrimp, thinly sliced okra, and baking powder. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Using your hands or a spoon, form the mixture into small patties or fritters. Ensure they are compact, so they hold together during frying.
  4. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. You'll need enough oil to cover the bottom of the skillet.
  5. Once the oil is hot, carefully place the fritters in the skillet. Fry them for about 3-4 minutes on each side, or until they are golden brown and crispy.
  6. Remove the fritters from the skillet and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain any excess oil. Serve hot.

These Shrimp and Okra Fritters are a fantastic low-carb option that is both delicious and easy to make. Perfect for a light meal or as a savory snack, they highlight the natural flavors of shrimp and okra while providing a satisfying crunch. Enjoy!
