Shrimp Scampi Zoodles

It is nearing the end of the week and my fridge is pretty much empty at this point. I used up left over ingredients to make this meal. Another one pot wonder and 20 minute meal that uses 6 ingredients + spices. My best meals are usually the ones that use left-over ingredients because it allows me to be creative!

Shrimp Scampi Zoodles (One Pot Wonder)

Yields: 2-3 servings | Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients

– 2 tbsp grass fed butter
– 4 cloves of garlic, minced
– 1 cup (or more) of cremini mushrooms, sliced
– 1 lb shrimp

– 2 medium zucchini, spiralized/julienned
– salt & pepper to taste
– optional: red pepper flakes (if you like heat)

Instructions
1. Heat cast iron skillet/pot over medium-high heat
2. Add butter to skillet and allow to melt
3. Add garlic and saute for 30 seconds (or until it begins to become fragrant, do not over-saute, burnt garlic is a no no!)

5. Add shrimp and lime juice, and flavour with salt/pepper and red pepper flakes
6. Toss zucchini noodles in the shrimp mixture
7. Mix well and simmer for 15 minutes
