Keto Shrimp Scampi Zoodles

Keto Shrimp Scampi Zoodles

Zucchini noodles (‘Zoodles’) are my go-to low-carb pasta noodle when I’m looking for a Keto-friendly pasta substitute.   The texture is different from traditional noodles, but if you prepare them right (which means not overcooking them!), they taste really great.  This delicious Keto Shrimp Scampi recipe combines Zoodles with sautéed shrimp in a delicious garlic butter sauce. 

You can find zoodles pre-cut at most grocery stores but they tend to be a tad pricy.  So if they’re a big hit at your house, I’d HIGHLY recommend buying a veggie cutter (like the Spiralizer 7-Blade Vegetable Slicer) and making your own zoodles at home.  Aside from the zoodles, you’ll also need some shrimp, a bit of butter, olive oil, and garlic, and a few spices for seasoning (hot pepper flakes, basil, salt).  Just follow the easy steps below to make these Keto Shrimp Scampi Zoodles and enjoy!
