It’s finally summertime and the smell of grilled burgers is in the air. But when you are on the keto diet, it’s tough to enjoy juicy hamburgers on pillowy buns served with starchy french fries – until now!
This recipe for keto burgers and low carb jicama fries makes 5 portions for meal prep and will satisfy your burger craving in a seriously delish way. My keto meal prep for this recipe only last 2 hours because a few friends were watching my Instagram story from Monday and decided to crash my kitchen, but hey, sharing is caring!
How To Make Jicama Fries
The only way to get your french fry on while doing the keto diet is to make jicama fries. You first have to boil the jicama to par-cook them and help draw out the excess starch, and then you can bake them in the oven. I coated my jicama fries with smoked paprika, cumin, cayenne, and baked them in the oven for about 40 minutes with a brief broil at the end to make them crispy.
This shrimp burger recipe is juicy, full of flavor, and so darn unique. I mean, how many of you have made a burger from ground shrimp before? Shrimp burgers can pretty much be treated just like salmon burgers. Season them aggressively and puree them in the food processor. The key for this shrimp burger recipe is not to puree them too smooth – you want them to be slightly chunky monkey. Texture is a good thing y’all!
Tasty Recipes For Keto Weight Loss
If you haven’t noticed, my blog is loaded with a bunch of meal prep recipes for keto weight loss. Many of you guys have been asking me when I am going back to making weight loss recipes, and I am constantly reminding them that the keto diet is perfect for losing weight. Sometimes you can adjust the amount of oil used or use low fat dairy. Keto diet weight loss is the way to go!
Check out my other keto weight loss recipes on y blog like my keto burrito bowl with low carb Mexican cauliflower rice and al pastor pork chops. Also check out on of the most popular keto recipes on my FlavCity YouTube. This Moroccan chicken with golden cauliflower rice is a symphony of flavors!
This shrimp burger and jicama fries meal prep recipe contains my recipe for keto special sauce. Think McDonalds pink sauce w/o all the yucky ingredients and sugar. The key to this sauce is using keto ketchup, meaning it has no sugar. You can buy this or make it yourself.
Also, the secret sauce contains dill relish, not sweet relish. The later contains sugar, and that is a no-no on the keto diet.
I know a few of you guys will ask if you can make the shrimp burger recipe in a blender if you don’t have a food processor, and the answer is maybe! If you have a good blender where you can control the speed of the blade and feel confident the machine can puree the shrimp, without making it too smooth, go for it.
But check out the video recipe in this post. I want you guys to see the texture of the shrimp burger after I process it. I call it chunky monkey style and don’t like when everything is smooth and there in no texture to the shrimp burger patty.
Normally I cook in a cast iron pan 90% of the time, but for this recipe, I don’t want the shrimp burgers to stick, so a large 14 inch non-stick pan will do the trick. Check out my Amazon links to see the one I use.
You will still have to cook the shrimp burgers in two batches because if you overcrowd the pan, they won’t get golden brown and crusty. Check out the video to see how darn crusty and beautiful my burgers got. 😉

Love this shrimp burger recipe
Thanks so much Sian!
Is it supposed to read 32 net carbs for the fries??? That does not sound keto…
That is correct Ash, but that makes 4-5 servings..and its the lowest carb veggie that I can actually turn into a fry!
The shrimp burgers are delicious! Definitely will make again! Bomb.com lol
Bomb.com is what I love to hear, thanks Maddie!
Hello Bobby big fan here.
Maybe this is a stupid question, how do you make the keto ketchup and dill relish? or where can I find them?
hi Julia, the easiest way is to buy them..like I did 🙂 Keto kethcup means it has no sugar..whole foods has two brands, the ne i buy is from primal kitchen..or you can make it here: https://www.wholesomeyum.com/keto-low-carb-sugar-free-ketchup-recipe/
Buy any dill relish from the store, just make sure it doesnt have sugar. You dont want to bother making it!
I’ve never made a shrimp burger before – do you think they can be frozen (either after being made into patties but prior to cooking, or after cooking)?
You can defo freeze them either way Tommy, give it a go!
BOBBY! Making the jicama fries right now. They smell good, I’m really hoping it’ll have a similar texture to the oh so lovely fries that I miss.
Also going to make your crispy skin salmon. Yep. Fries and salmon. Fight me 🙂
wow..that is so French of you..frites and fish 😉 Enjoy!
This was a fun one to make! Quick easy and tasty. I did notice we had a lot of extra liquid with these, but we may not have given them a chance to fully cool before putting in the meal prep containers. This might also have been from the lettuce leaves not being fully dry as well. Other than this, it was amazing.
so glad you enjoyed it!! the liquid must have been from the wet lettuce 😉
Are the macro amounts for one serving or entire meal prepared?
for one serving…recipe makes 5 servings.
Bobby, you are making me turn to cooking and leaving behind my microwaving ways!
I loved this recipe! The jicama fries were delish a couple days after the fact, too– maybe they absorbed more of the spices. And I used wasabi mayo on my shrimp burgers.
Jamie, so happy to hear it!!! Good job on the wasabi mayo!!!
Can I use avocado mayo for the full fat mayo?
Full-fat mayo is the way to go: avocado mayo would be perfect. We have a recipe coming out next week for making your own avocado mayo.
Tried it. Delicious!!!
Awesome to hear! Thanks for letting us know that you cooked it and loved it! Keep on cookin’!
There is a restaurant in Los Angeles where I live that sells keto French fries using taro root. They are so darn good and crispy! They make an “animal fries” style using these fries. They put the keto sauce, grilled red onion, cilantro, and sliced jalapeño on top. So good!! It’s another alternative veggie you could do for the keto fries. Love this and all of your recipes. Thanks for sharing! 🙂
That sounds delicious! Thanks for the idea! Keep on cookin’!
