Ingredients

  • 2 lbs. shrimp raw
  • 4 medium zucchinis
  • 1 small lemon juiced
  • 3 tbsps. chopped or minced garlic
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 3 tbsps. chopped parsley
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. pepper flakes optional
  • 2 tbsps. butter
  • 3 tsps. black pepper
  • 2 tbsps. olive oil

Instructions

  • Spiralize the zucchinis to make the zoodles.
  • Heat a skillet and add the oil and butter. Sauté the garlic for one minute and then add in the shrimp, spices and salt.
  • Cook the shrimp on each side for 4 minutes or more if you like it more cooked.
  • Add in the parsley, lemon juice and zoodles. Toss to coat zoodles well.
  • Cover and cook for 5 minutes and then serve. Garnish with more parsley or chopped chili pepper (optional).

Notes

  • You can make this with either shrimp or chicken if you like.
  • If you want to make this dish more hearty and add some carbs, you could do a 50-50 mix of zucchini noodles and whole wheat pasta.
  • If you don't have a spiralizer you can julienne the zucchini with a vegetable peeler. A mandoline slicer is also good for wide 'noodles'.
  • Don’t overcook the zoodles as they’ll become mushy. Zucchini noodles will cook quickly!
