Shrimp Scampi Zoodles For Two

Updated: Feb 21, 2021


2 medium zucchini, about 7 oz each

1/2 tbsp olive oil

2 tsp extra virgin olive oil, divided

4 minced garlic cloves, divided

12 large peeled and deveined shrimp (about 6.5 oz)

kosher salt, to taste

freshly ground black pepper

1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley leaves

1/2 tsp fresh grated lemon zest

3 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice (from 1 lemon)

1/8 tsp hot red pepper flakes


Use a mandolin fitted with a julienne blade or a spiralizer to cut the zucchini into noodles. Cut the strips into 6 to 8-inch strips.

In a large nonstick pan, melt 1 teaspoon olive oil over medium heat. Add the garlic and saute for 1 minute. Add the shrimp, kosher salt, and the pepper and saute until the shrimp have just turned pink, about 5 minutes, stirring often. Set aside.

Add the remaining oil and garlic to the skillet, cook 30 seconds then add the zucchini noodles, kosher salt and pepper. Cook 2 minutes, stirring.

Remove from the heat, add the shrimp, parsley, lemon zest, lemon juice, and red pepper flakes. Toss well to combine and serve immediately.

Makes 2 servings. 6 shrimp, half the noodles.
