Zucchini Shrimp Scampi

If you've had your fill of Thanksgiving turkey and all the trimmings by now, here's an easy meal (and healthy) meal that includes shrimp, zucchini and some basic ingredients. It was really good and is now in our recipe collection for repeat meals.

Shrimp and Zucchini "Scampi"

  • 2 TBSPs unsalted butter
  • 1 lb medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes or more (or less) to taste
  • 1/4 C chicken stock
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1-1/2 lbs (4 med.) zucchini, spiralized
  • 2 TBSPs freshly ground Parmesan (substitute Romano or a mix)
  • 2 TBSPs chopped fresh parsley (or use less dried)

  1. Melt butter in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add shrimp, garlic and red pepper flakes. Cook stirring occasionally until shrimp is pink, about 2-3 minutes.
  2. Stir in chicken stock and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper to taste. 
  3. Bring to a simmer, stir in zucchini noodles until well combined, about 1-2 minutes.
  4. Serve immediately, garnished with cheese and parsley, if desired.
Grenville declared this recipe a "keeper" and gave it a "forks up."

I use squashes as a substitute for pasta often. Looks good.
