Shrimp Scampi with Zoodles

Hi friends, I am so excited to share this recipe that I threw together when I went to Wegmans one day without a list. (Note: I do not encourage anyone to go to Wegmans, Whole Foods or TARGET without a list!) This recipe is probably one of my favorite things to eat on a weekly basis and it takes less than 10 minutes to put together! If you aren’t on a round of Whole30 you can substitute zoodles for regular noodles, add dry white wine and butter too! So Good!

Ingredients:

  • 1 small onion diced
  • 2 cloves are garlic minced
  • 2 Tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 Tbsp. Ghee
  • 1 small fresh lemon
  • 1/2 lb of fresh or frozen shrimp (if frozen allow to thaw in cold water)
  • 1 package of frozen Zoodles (spiralized zucchini) (this is what I use!)
  • 1/2 tsp. Mustard Powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Onion Powder
  • 1/4 tsp. Red Pepper Flakes (optional)
  • Generous Pinch of Salt and Pepper
  • Sprinkle of Dried Parsley

Directions:

  1.  Dice small onion and mince garlic cloves, set aside.  Half the lemon and squeeze into a small bowl.
  2. In a separate small bowl season uncooked shrimp with, a generous pinch of salt and pepper, mustard powder, onion powder and red pepper flakes (optional), coat all shrimp in spice mixture.
  3. Add 1 Tbsp. of olive oil to a pan and bring to medium heat, add diced onions and minced garlic stirring frequently until fragrant, about 2-3 minutes.  Microwave frozen zoodles at this time!
  4. Once Garlic and onion mixture is fragrant, add 1 Tbsp. of ghee OR butter (if not Whole30) and lemon juice and uncooked seasoned shrimp.  Sauté shrimp until both sides are pink and cooked through. Do not over cook.
  5. After microwaving frozen zoodles according to package instructions, drain and add to shrimp. Toss to combine and coat zoodles, plate and enjoy!
