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.

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • 1 tbsp minced garlic

  • 1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined

  • 1/4 cup dry white wine

  • 2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice

  • 1 tbsp butter

  • 3 tbsp heavy (whipping) cream

  • 2 1/2 cups zucchini noodles

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley

Directions

  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add the olive oil and heat for about 1 minute. Add the garlic. Cook for 1 minute.
  • Add the shrimp to the pan. Cook on all sides, turning, about 4 minutes. Remove the shrimp from the pan. Set aside, leaving the liquid in the pan.
  • To the pan with reserved liquid, add the white wine, lemon juice, and whipping cream. Scrape the bottom of the pan to incorporate any solids with the liquid, stirring constantly for 2 minutes.
  • Add the zucchini noodles to the pan. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 2 minutes or until the zucchini is al dente (noodle-like) in texture.
  • Return the shrimp to the pan. Season with the salt and pepper. Stir to incorporate all ingredients.
  • Plate and garnish with fresh parsley. Serve immediately.
