Lemon Garlic Shrimp + Zoodles

    Delicious, low carb, clean & keto friendly! 

  • INGREDIENTS 
  • 4 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 whole medium/large zucchinis (spiralized)
  • 1 small/medium lemon (juiced with seeds removed)
  • 1/4 teaspoon Kosher salt (more to taste if desired)
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 2 Tablespoons grated Parmesan (if desired)
  • 20 Cooked, peeled tail off shrimp (amount optional, I prefer a LOT of shrimp!)

ZOODLES DIRECTIONS
You can either buy zoodles premise or purchase a spiralizer & make them yourself with zucchini squash. Heat olive oil in a large sauté pan and add garlic, stirring and heating for 1-2 minutes until lightly golden. Add zoodles and lemon juice and cook over medium heat until noodles are softened, about 3-5 minutes. Gently sprinkle in salt, oregano, basil and red pepper flakes then toss to combine. Garnish with Parmesan cheese if desired.

SHRIMP DIRECTIONS
I like to take shortcuts when I can so I get the Costco cooked, peeled tail off shrimp. I defrost them overnight the night before in the fridge or just run them through water (although the bag directions discourage this... but if I forget to defrost prior to, oh well). Then I cook them in a skillet for just a few minutes for flavor and to heat them up while making the zoom does as well. I use a little olive oil (1tsp), oregano, basil & garlic as I do with the zoodles. 

When both are done, top the zoodles with the shrimp & ENJOY
