Shrimp Scampi with Zucchini Noodles

Last week I got a spiralizer and have been using it like crazy! I love spaghetti squash as a pasta substitute, but it can be a bit time consuming. Zucchini noodles are super easy! They literally only take about 3 minutes! This is a perfect dish when you are short on time and want to keep it clean. I made it for Ryan and I during one of my many spiraling tests and it was SO good, I had to share it with you guys! It’s my take on a paleo shrimp scampi with zucchini noodles and you can eat it 100% guilt-FREE

paleo pasta zucchini noodles shrimp


Ingredients:

2 Tbs olive oil

1 Pound Shrimp (deveined and peeled)

3 Cloves Garlic, minced

1/1-1 tsp Red Pepper Flakes

1/4 cup Chicken Stock (or Vegetable Stock)

4 Medium Zucchinis Spiralized (you can also thinly slice into “noodles”)

1 cup Baby Heirloom Tomatoes, diced

1/2-1 cup Artichoke Hearts

1 Lemon

1 Tbs Fresh Basil, chopped

1 Tbs Fresh Parsley, chopped

2 Tbs Garlic Powder

Sprinkle of Fresh Parmesan (optional)

Salt and Pepper to Taste ( go easy on the salt)

Directions:

♥ Heat oil in pan over medium-high heat

 Add tomatoes, stirring occasionally for about 3 minutes

 Add shrimp, garlic, artichoke & red pepper flakes, stirring for about 2-3 minutes

Add the stock, juice of lemon and noodles and stir for 1-2 minutes

Add a pinch of salt and pepper to taste

Remove from pan and top with fresh basil and parsley (Parmesan optional)

*Serving size 4

Note: You can also substitute the shrimp for chicken, but you will just need to make sure you cook it through.
