Whole30 zucchini noodles with lemon garlic shrimp. An easy and delicious weeknight dinner. Who’s ready for this healthy low calorie and filling paleo dinner?
Do you have any of those recipes in your family that are just pillars for family memories?
Growing up, our family favorite meal was always lemon garlic shrimp…
OH SO buttery and lemony delicious- the kind of delicious where, you don’t want to put down your fork delicious.
It’s happening. 🙂
The first time my Mom ever made this dish was when her cheerful Italian dad (we kids call Nonno) came to visit and the whole experience was just all around life-changing.
Back then though, it was golden wheat pasta drenched in a river of butter and topped off with a mountain of parmesan cheese shreds.
Now, I wouldn’t refuse that plate, but somedays I just want a lighter version of all that goodness.
The zucchini noodles in this recipe are a fresh and healthy sub for all those carbs, but this dish still has that garlicy-lemony pop we all know and love.
I love everything about zucchini noodles and now that we have reached an elevated status of healthy shopping in 2019, we now have zucchini noodles pre-made at our convenience.
Also, thank you 2019 for the beautiful gift of vegetable noodles without all the extra labor- I love ya for it!
alL about zucchini noodles
If you don’t have access to zucchini noodles, you can make them at home using a spiralizer.
A spiralizer is a great tool to keep around the kitchen for making all the noodles!!
Although, I prefer to buy pre-made noodles and skip that whole process; because, LAZY!
Or I just don’t have time- you pick. 🙂
I hope you enjoy this bright and fresh family dinner as much as we do.
Side note: these noodles are totally delicious to reheat for seconds later. 🙂
