As most people call them, Zucchini Noodles, or zoodles, are impressive! They cook in two minutes! Whether you're looking for a healthy, light meal or a meal that is easy to get on the dinner table, look no further than keto zucchini noodles.
Not only is zucchini super healthy, but they are also low-carb. One cup of zoodles contains 35 calories, 7.6% of which come from carbs. Furthermore, zucchini contains antioxidants, supports healthy digestion, and may decrease blood sugar levels.
On the other hand, shrimp contain antioxidants, one of the most beneficial health compounds. Specifically, an antioxidant found in shrimp called astaxanthin can prevent wrinkles and decrease sun damage.
To make this scampi-style dish, we began using a vegetable spiralizer to create zoodles. Of course, you can use store-bought zucchini noodles, but there is something fun and exciting about making your zoodles. First, we sautéed the shrimp in butter, olive oil, aromatic shallots, and garlic. No one likes overcooked shrimp; they are rubbery and chewy, so we sautéed the shrimp just until they were pink.
We then added seafood broth to intensify the seafood flavor and lime juice for a tart, vibrant burst of flavor. Finally, we added the zucchini noodles and simmered the sauce for 1-2 minutes until they were perfectly cooked. And that's it! In 1-2-3, you've got keto zucchini noodles cooked in less than 15 minutes.
