Skinny Shrimp Scampi with Zucchini Noodles

“Gone is the butter. Gone is the pasta. Gone is the white wine. Wait. I can’t. I just can’t do it.”


2 Tablespoons olive oil

1 pound jumbo shrimp, shelled and deveined

1 Tablespoon minced garlic

1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (optional)

1/4 cup white wine

2 Tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

2 medium zucchini, cut into noodles (See Kelly’s Notes)

Chopped parsley, for garnish


Place a large sauté pan over medium-low heat.

Add the olive oil and heat it for 1 minute.

Add the garlic and crushed red pepper flakes and cook them for 1 minute, stirring constantly.

Add the shrimp to the pan and cook them, stirring as needed, until they are cooked throughout 
and pink on all sides, about 3 minutes.

Season the shrimp with salt and pepper and then using a slotted spoon, transfer them to a 
bowl, leaving any liquid in the pan.

Increase the heat to medium.

Add the white wine and lemon juice to the pan. Using a wooden spoon, scrape any brown bits 
from the bottom of the pan, cooking the wine and lemon juice for 2 minutes.

Add the zucchini noodles and cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes.

Return the shrimp to the pan and toss to combine.

Season with salt and pepper, garnish with parsley and serve immediately.
