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!

“Zoodles” with hatch chile crusted shrimp

Thank you to all who participated in our Whole Foods giveaway, the winner has been emailed! On to todays post, zoodles!

Did you celebrate National Zucchini Day a couple of weeks ago? Yeah, me neither. I thought I was up to date on current nutrition trends, but I guess I missed this one. Who knew there was a day to honor the squash that is rich in folate, potassium and vitamin A. I started to see my instagram feed fill with images of oversized zucchini, stuffed zucchini boats, zucchini bread and even zucchini noodles. I was quickly inspired to pull out my shiny new spiralizer!

I have wanted a spiralizer for a while, and my wish was fulfilled when my husband got me this one for Mothers Day. Spiralizers come in all different varieties and price points, but the concept is the same. This gadget allows you to make tasty “noodles” out of various vegetables, such as zucchini, butternut squash and sweet potatoes. There are different attachments that create different size “noodles. The possibilities are endless, and just a quick Pinterest search of “spiralizer recipes” will have you drooling!
