Shrimp Zucchini Noodles Meal Prep

Craving shrimp scampi? Prep for the week ahead for a low-carb, quick, easy and HEALTHY meal using zucchini noodles!

We’re officially in May.

Summer begins on June 20th.

Which means we’re getting really close to bikini season.

So I’ve put down the donuts.

I’ve just put down one of the donuts.

I’ve picked this up.

With a garlic butter sauce.

I added more garlic, and made it a teensy bit healthier with less butter and a bit of olive oil.

You can’t tell the difference.

And that freshly grated Parmesan on top is LIFE, guys.

This recipe sounds great and I’d love to try it! How did you “spiralize” the zucchini?

I used this spiralizer.

How many meal prep containers (from the link you provided) will this recipe fill?

Are you working on any pressure cooker recipes?

Yes, I am. Please stay tuned. 🙂

sounds (& looks) absolutely delicious! can’t wait to make this. how did you know i was craving shrimp? 🙂

Wow I love this idea!!

Wow this looks good am diabetic am meals like that is great for me

If you put shrimp in it, I will eat it. Love this dish, because its made out of all my favorites.

Do you just put the containes
in the oven at 350 to reheat?

The containers are not oven-safe. You can reheat on the stovetop (sans container of course) or the microwave.

How long in the microwave to reheat a standard serving, you think?

It’s hard to say – it really depends on the microwave settings. But I would start at 90 seconds and increase at 30 second intervals until heated through. Hope that helps!

Will have to try this recipe

Tried it and loved it!! On a low carb diet so this was perfect and fulfilling…

Tried this tonight – easy, fast and so yummy! And I didn’t miss the pasta at all 🙂

Made this dish for supper last night. No modifications. My daughter texted this afternoon to ask if we could eat it again! Now that’s an endorsement!

Wow, wow, no other words! The only things I did different than the recipe was to drain the zucchini on paper towels for at least 30 minutes (changing the paper towels and squeezing the liquid out), and I added some fresh diced tomatoes right before I put the zucchini in. This is the 2nd of many “world class” dinners my husband says I made from your website. Thank you!

looks delicious . Will add it to my recipes to try.

Do you have the nutrition facts on this?

So Good and light.

Hey there when you do the shrimp do you take it and set it to the side after cooked or leave in when you and the noodles

You can leave it in.

Loved this, I added some green onions since I had some that were already chopped and I did not want them to go to waste. I would squeeze out the moisture of from the zucchini next time as there was a lot of liquid, albeit tasted great! I almost think I could use half of the fat as well. Lots of crushed red pepper and some grated parmesan to top it off. It was excellent and SUPER fast!

Is there a way to get the nutrition fact like on some of the other recipes you have posted?

I will probably try this for dinner sometime, but I can’t picture it as a meal prep. Shrimp turns rubbery when reheated.

Oh my dear lady, you did it again. LOVE your shrimp recipes… Thanks!

Brilliant concoction!! Made it. Loved it. Didn’t do chicken broth, used zucchini moisture instead. Green onions instead of parsley as didn’t have. Some fresh lime instead of lemon, all else same. Thank You!!

This looks perfect! Question, have you ever tried freezing portions of this? Curious about freezing prepared zucchini. Super convenient to be able to freeze portions and have them there when you are craving some Damn Delicious meals 🙂

Unfortunately, I cannot answer this with certainty as I have never tried freezing this myself. Please use your best judgment for freezing and reheating.

Come join me in my culinary adventures where we’ll be using simple, fresh ingredients and transforming them into sophisticated and elegant meals for the everyday home cook.
