What’s for dinner? How ’bout Zucchini Noodles Shrimp Scampi. Easy enough for a week night dinner, impressive enough for entertaining!
Zoodles. Ever heard of ’em? If you’re on Pinterest you have. They are the “it” food trend right now, and it’s something I wasn’t quite sure whether or not would be something I or my family would be into. For one… zucchini replacing spaghetti? Pshaw. Doesn’t seem likely. For two… seemed like a lot of work.
When this Christmas my sister gave me a spiralizer, I figured it was time to get down to business and learn how to make zoodles. Turns out, after getting familiar with the step-by-step instructions, turning vegetables into noodles is easy-peasy. Even better? When used in the right recipes they enhance the dish instead of taking away from it.
Such it is with this Zucchini Noodle Shrimp Scampi. Not only is this a one-pot dinner, making prep and clean up a breeze, but coating the zucchini in garlic, butter and lemon is pure perfection.
To make, start by spiralizing your zucchini. I used a zucchini per person.
Next saute the SeaPak Shrimp Scampi according to package direcions.
Remove the shrimp from the pan, leaving the sauce, once the shrimp are cooked through. Add in the zucchini noodles. Toss over medium heat until warmed through, then add in two tablespoons of chopped parsley, the juice of half a lemon, and 1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese. Give it a stir, then add back in the shrimp.
Dinner is served, folks. Not sure if your kids will eat shrimp? Get them to try the SeaPak Popcorn Shrimp first along with their favorite dipping sauce. My kids all adore these (let’s be honest, so do I), and it’s another great easy week night dinner option.
