I have a couple of other low carb risottos on this site – and I think it's a fantastic way to use riced cauliflower! You can buy it already riced, but making your own is cheaper!

This time I decided to make a seafood risotto, inspired by a frozen pack of mixed seafood containing cooked squid, clams, mussels, and shrimp.

I used a similar one (but different brand) to make my low carb seafood salad. If you can't find this exact combination it really won't matter – just use whatever you can find or stick to one type of seafood. 

How to Make a Low Carb Seafood Risotto

In a large pan or cast iron skillet, melt some butter together with some olive oil. Add some garlic paste and cook over a medium heat for a couple of minutes.  Add the riced cauliflower and some onion powder, and sauté for five minutes, stirring frequently.

Next, add some chicken or vegetable broth (I use chicken broth from Kettle & Fire!) and some canned tomato sauce.

Bring to the boil then reduce to a simmer. Continue to cook until the liquid has reduced and the cauliflower is cooked, abut 8-10 minutes.

Add the mixed seafood (thawed if necessary) and some shredded Parmesan. Cook until the seafood has warmed through and the cheese has melted.
