Shrimp Scampi with Zoodles


Shrimp Scampi with Zoodles



This recipe came into creation the day my new spiralizer arrived. After attempting to buy multiple premade “zoodles” from the store and never being satisfied with any to replace noodles, I have wanted to purchase a spiralizer to make homemade “zoodles” for many years. I just always forget that I want one. When I was on Amazon the other day it popped up as a purchase suggestion for only $20, so of course I added it to the cart!

Shrimp was the first choice of meat to try with the “zoodles.” I figured the two would compliment each other well, and they sure did. We ate every last bite with nothing left-over! I highly recommend purchasing a spiralizer and making this dish.

Zoodles

Zoodles are a great replacement for noodles. You can purchase them already done from the store. But from personal experience purchasing a spiralizer for $20, and making them fresh is the best way to go.
