Looking for a low-carb, healthy meal ready in approximately 15 minutes, give or take? I have for you shrimp scampi in the skillet with zucchini noodles. At about 200 calories per serving, WOW, I’m on this “Zoodle Train!” Toot-toot!
First, you need a spiralizer if you do not currently have one. They come from pricey to low-end. If you don’t want to spend big bucks, I recommend starting out with a low-end option to see how much you will use it. And, then down the line, you can invest in a more expensive, solid metal one, like a before, if you feel is deemed worth.
I love this one that attaches to my KitchenAid stand mixer. It comes with several spiral shape options.
Of course, you need a “crumb catcher” to help with all those dropped bits.
Start by spiralizing 4 zucchini into a bowl.Chop garlic, parsley and slice lemon. Have wine, salt, pepper, pepper flakes and Parmesan on hand.Peel and devein shrimp.
This happens fast! Heat skillet over medium-high heat and add olive oil. Add “zoodles” and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add garlic and cook 1-2 minutes more, stirring.
Add shrimp and cook 1-2 minutes.
Add wine and cook two more minutes.
Add seasonings, squeeze of the lemon, and grated Parmesan (if desired.)Serve immediately!
