Ingredients:
– 1 pound of large shrimp, peeled and deveined
– 4 medium-sized zucchini
– 4 tablespoons of olive oil
– 4 cloves of garlic, minced
– 1/4 cup of chicken or vegetable broth
– 2 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice
– 1/4 cup of dry white wine (optional)
– 1/4 teaspoon of red pepper flakes (adjust to taste)
– Salt and black pepper to taste

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the zucchini noodles: Using a spiralizer or a julienne peeler, create long, thin strands of zucchini noodles. Set aside.
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and sauté until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  3. Increase the heat to medium-high and add the shrimp to the skillet. Cook the shrimp until they turn pink and opaque, approximately 2-3 minutes per side. Once cooked, transfer the shrimp to a plate and set aside.
  4. In the same skillet, add the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Add the zucchini noodles and sauté them for 2-3 minutes until they are tender but still crisp.
  5. Return the cooked shrimp to the skillet with the zucchini noodles. Add the chicken or vegetable broth, lemon juice, white wine (if using), and red pepper flakes. Season with salt and black pepper to taste. Stir everything together and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together.
  6. Remove the skillet from the heat and garnish the dish with fresh parsley.
  7. Serve the shrimp scampi over the zucchini noodles immediately. Enjoy the delightful combination of flavors and textures!
