Shrimp Scampi with Zoodles

So this won’t go down as the healthiest recipe here on Healthy Bites Houston; however, it is one of the tastiest! My take on this classic dish is slightly healthier than the restaurant version, but doesn’t disappoint in taste! In my opinion, the key to a flavorful scampi is lots of fresh garlic and REAL butter! Yes, real BUTTER! As I mentioned, this is not the healthiest recipe to grace the pages of HBH, but it is made with whole foods and real ingredients that are good for the soul!

First, I made more zoodles! Yes, more zoodles. I know you are probably thinking that is all I eat, but I just love how versatile they are, and with a mild flavor they are always hubby and kiddo approved. I let the zoodles sweat in the oven at 200 degrees for about 30 minutes. Remove and set aside.

Next chop your garlic, and add it to the sauté pan with about 6 tbsp on butter. Sauté until the butter is melted and let brown for a minute or two. Next add the dry white wine, let simmer for a few minutes. Add the shrimp and cover the pan, allowing the butter/wine mixture to simmer for ~10-15 minutes.

While the sauce is cooking, prepare 1/2 a package of linguine or angel hair pasta. Combine with the noodles.

Serve shrimp atop a bed of the zoodle mixture, making sure to spoon some extra garlic sauce on top!
