Can I use frozen shrimp instead of fresh?

Yes, you can use frozen shrimp for this recipe. Make sure to thaw them completely before cooking, and pat them dry with paper towels to remove excess moisture.

I don't have red peppers. Can I substitute with another vegetable?

Absolutely! Feel free to substitute red peppers with other keto-friendly vegetables such as zucchini, cauliflower, or asparagus according to your preference.

How do I know when the shrimp are cooked through?

Shrimp are cooked when they turn pink and opaque. Be careful not to overcook them, as they can become rubbery. Cooking them for about 2-3 minutes per side should be sufficient.

**Can I make this dish ahead of time?

While this dish is best enjoyed fresh, you can prepare the ingredients ahead of time and cook them just before serving. However, reheating may cause the shrimp to become overcooked and the vegetables to lose their texture.

** Can I omit garlic from the recipe?**

If you don't like garlic, you can omit it from the recipe. However, garlic adds a lot of flavor to the dish, so you may want to consider adding other herbs or spices to enhance the taste.

Can I use a different type of oil instead of olive oil?

Yes, you can use another type of oil such as avocado oil or coconut oil if you prefer. Just keep in mind that olive oil is commonly used in Mediterranean cuisine and adds its own unique flavor to the dish.

How long will leftovers last in the refrigerator?

Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 days. Reheat them gently in the microwave or on the stove until warmed through before serving.

Is this dish suitable for meal prep?

Yes, this dish can be suitable for meal prep. You can portion it out into containers and store them in the refrigerator for quick and easy meals throughout the week. Just be mindful of reheating to avoid overcooking the shrimp.
