Garlic Shrimp Zoodles

Choosing your summer squash

These “zoodles” are made with green and yellow zucchini and some spiralized red onion to add a little more flavor. I have had a spiralizer for a while now and I decided with the fresh produce in the market, it was about time I got around to making some zucchini noodles, or in other words, zoodles!

Making Zoodles

You can still make Garlic Shrimp Zoodles even if you do not have a spiralizer! Just slice the squash and onion into thin slices. 🙂 However, if you don’t have a spiralizer I highly recommend you get one! There is so much fun to be had with them and they make amazing Sweet Potato Shoestring Fries!

You might have plenty of squash in your garden right now. Or, someone you know is trying to get rid of their abundance! If so, this is a delicious, quick, and easy way to use some of them!

What to serve with Garlic Shrimp Zoodles

Garlic Shrimp Zoodles Saute is light and delicious. However, we still like to enjoy a light dessert once in a while. A great dessert recipe that compliments the meal would be these delicious Low Carb Lemon Curd Thumbprints! If your not low carb, but would still like to enjoy a dessert afterward, try this recipe for No Bake Lemon Cheesecake!
