Shrimp Scampi

  • 1 pound raw shrimp (medium size) * peeled and deveined
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic * minced
  • 1/2 cup white cooking wine
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

  • 1 lemon * juiced
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley * roughly chopped

Zucchini Noodles


Shrimp Scampi

  • Heat the butter and olive oil to a large skillet over medium heat. 
  • Once the butter is melted, add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds to 1 minute, stirring frequently.
  • Add the white cooking wine, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes and increase the heat to simmer until the liquid is reduced by half, about 2-3 minutes.
  • Place the shrimp in the pan, trying not to overlap them. Cook for 3-4 minutes, turning occasionally, until pink and opaque.
  • Stir in half of the lemon juice and parsley. Taste and add more lemon juice, if desired. Keep the scampi on warm while you prepare the zucchini noodles.

Zucchini Noodles

  • To cook the zucchini noodles, season the zoodles with salt and pepper.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat and add the seasoned zoodles. Cook, stirring often, until fork-tender, about 4-5 minutes.
  • To serve, divide the zoodles among 4 plates and top with even amounts of the shrimp scampi.
  • Garnish with extra fresh parsley, if desired.


Tips and Techniques for the Best Keto Shrimp Scampi

  • Use fresh, spiralized zucchini. Frozen zoodles will likely give you a mushier, less desirable texture.
  • Store any leftover Keto Shrimp Scampi in an air-tight container in the refrigerator. Use within 3-4 days.
