Shrimp Scampi With Zucchini Noodles
Shrimp scampi is a pasta classic that gets a twist in this "keto-fied" recipe by substituting zucchini noodles for the pasta. A spiralizer, used to create the zucchini noodles for this dish, is a versatile tool to invest in for your kitchen arsenal that is extremely useful on the keto diet. If you have a mandolin, you can also achieve the unique "zoodles" cut with that.

¼ cup dry white wine
