Fats of Life® is a blog I run as a hobby. I love spending time on it, but did you know that I am also the author of two best-selling cookbooks? KETO KITCHEN (2020) and LAZY KETO KITCHEN (2021) – both available worldwide and very well-priced. I have a third book on the way: BUDGET KETO KITCHEN, (coming mid-2022).
Perhaps its time to start building up your Keto Kitchen collection if you have not already done so. Not only will my books make beautiful Christmas stocking fillers for loved ones interested in a low carb lifestyle, but you could simply treat YOURSELF! Your family (whether they live keto or not) will not be disappointed with all your exciting, delicious creations!

For the shrimp

For the chunky guacamole

  • 1 large avocado
  • 1/2 lime, juice only
  • 1 red chilli, finely chopped
  • small handful coriander, finely chopped
  • salt and pepper


  • Always remove excess moisture from fish or meat. Lay them out on a plate or tray lined with good-quality kitchen paper and pat dry.
    (If you are using frozen prawns, spread them out on a tray double-lined with kitchen paper and leave in the fridge overnight to safely defrost.)
  • Thread the prawns onto skewers and cook until done. This can be done on your BBQ (in which case they should be brushed with olive oil beforehand), OR they can simply be fried in butter in a large non-stick pan of hot butter.
  • Once the prawns are cooked, squeeze over the juice of 1/2 lime and season with salt flakes. Set aside to keep warm.
  • In the meantime, make a quick chunky guacamole: Roughly mash the avocado in a bowl using a fork. Drizzle over the juice of 1/2 lime (this adds acidity but it also prevents the avo turning brown). Stir through the finely chopped chilli and coriander. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Enjoy the two together. This is simply, but lovely... especially in the summer months. It also makes a lovely appetizer.
