Garlic Shrimp Alfredo with Zoodles
September 10, 2019
Possibly one of the most comforting, craveable noodle dishes of all time, pasta alfredo is a cream-heavy, butter-slicked, carb-rich dish punctuated by nutty-salty-sharp parmesan cheese and speckled with freshly cracked black pepper. A sprinkle of chopped Italian parsley cuts through the thick, rich sauce.
Our version of shrimp alfredo comes together quickly and easily with our No-Dairy Roasted Garlic Alfredo Sauce, spiralized zucchini noodles (also called "zoodles"), pan-seared spiced shrimp, sliced grape tomatoes for a pop of color and a burst of acidity, and a liberal amount of chopped fresh parsley for an herby edge. For a less garlic-forward version, substitute our regular No-Dairy Alfredo Sauce made with avocado oil.
Even if you don’t have any issues with digesting dairy, our modern version of the traditional alfredo pasta dish won’t sit like a brick in your gut. You get the same creamy richness with the added interest of caramelized roasted garlic, but without the heaviness.
Garlic Shrimp Alfredo with Zucchini Noodles
Loaded with earthy, keto-friendly zucchini strips instead of carb-laden pasta, this creamy and comforting dish feels like an indulgence. Make it with our no-dairy Garlic Alfredo, or use our original Alfredo for a more neutral bite.
In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add avocado oil.
Add shrimp and sprinkle with ½ teaspoon seasoning. Cook for 2–3 minutes on one side.
Turn shrimp over and sprinkle with remaining ½ teaspoon seasoning.
Cook for 2–3 minutes on the other side, or until shrimp is pink. Remove shrimp from pan and set aside.
In the same skillet, pour in ½ jar of garlic or regular Alfredo sauce. Heat for 1 minute.
Add zoodles to the skillet, tossing to coat in the sauce. Cook zoodles for 3–4 minutes, stirring frequently.
Add shrimp back into the skillet. Add the sliced tomatoes to the skillet as well, and toss to combine.
Remove skillet from heat and plate the dish. Sprinkle each plate with plenty of chopped fresh parsley and enjoy!
