Zoodle Shrimp Scampi

Anytime I go to Red Lobster, I have to get the shrimp scampi. My mom always got it, made me try it, and now, I always get it.

Bottom line: If I am going to eat shrimp, I want it covered in garlic and butter.



When I started this healthy living restart month, I wanted to eat a lot of fish and shellfish. I started to think about how much I love shrimp, but they are usually a pasta dish.

And then I thought about my favorite, shrimp scampi! And I was determined to create my own healthier-inspired recipe.

This is about the time when I remembered zoodles! Zoodles are spiralized zucchini, and they are a great replacement for noodles.

I created a Zoodle shrimp scampi recipe that makes you feel like you are eating something fancy, and you definitely don’t miss the pasta!
