Skinny Shrimp Scampi with Zucchini Noodles

First tried 9/13/2015. Easy and very good. Seemed a little spicy, maybe use less garlic next time. Also could use more zucchini noodles as they shrink when cooked--try doubling. On mandoline use 1/8 inch thick on julienne slicer.

Ingredients

  • 2

    T. olive oil

  • 1

    pound jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined

  • 1

    T. minced garlic

  • 1/4

    tsp. crushed red pepper flakes (optional)

  • 1/4

    cup white wine

  • 2

    T. freshly squeezed lemon juice

  • 2

    medium zucchini, cut into noodles (try using more)

  • Chopped parsley for garnish

Directions

Place a large saute pan over medium-low heat. Add the olive oil and heat 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.
