▢2-3 large zucchini - spiralized (or about 4 cups zoodles)
▢1¾ lb (800g) large or extra-large shrimp - peeled and deveined
▢4 garlic cloves - minced
▢2 tsp lemon zest
▢2 tbsp (30ml) olive oil - extra-virgin
▢sea salt and ground pepper - to taste
▢2 tbsp (28g) butter
▢1/4 cup (60ml) fish stock
▢1 lemon - freshly squeezed
▢1/4 cup (6g) chopped parsley
▢1/2 tsp pepper flakes - crushed
Start by making fresh zucchini noodles, with a spiralizer. 2-3 large zucchini
In a large bowl, add the raw shrimp together with garlic, lemon zest and oil. Season with salt and pepper and toss to combine. 1¾ lb (800g) large or extra-large shrimp,4 garlic cloves,2 tsp lemon zest,2 tbsp (30ml) olive oil,sea salt and ground pepper
Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. 2 tbsp (28g) butter
Add the shrimp in a single layer and cook until pink, for about 3-5 minutes per side. 1¾ lb (800g) large or extra-large shrimp
Stir in the stock, lemon juice, parsley and pepper flakes. 1/4 cup (60ml) fish stock,1 lemon,1/4 cup (6g) chopped parsley,1/2 tsp pepper flakes
Toss the freshly made zucchini noodles to combine, and serve immediately. 2-3 large zucchini
Adding the zucchini noodles at the very end of the recipe will help keep them springy and fresh, rather than limp or watery.
Keep a close eye on your shrimp in the skillet. They cook quickly, so you want to be careful not to overcook. As soon as the shrimp look pink and curled into a C-shape, turn off the heat and add your zucchini noodles.
You can make this easy shrimp scampi recipe with white wine instead of the fish stock. It won’t be keto-friendly, but it has an elevated flavor.
Serve the shrimp scampi with grated parmesan cheese on top for a richer flavor.
I don’t recommend storing the zucchini noodles, as they can become soggy easily. Instead, store the cooked shrimp for 1 to 2 days and add fresh zucchini noodles just before serving.
