Shrimp Scampi with Zucchini Noodles

By  | 

I love shrimp scampi!  That buttery sauce tastes SO good, it’s just too bad that it’s not so good for the waistline.  I try to keep butter out of my diet as much as possible, but sometimes you just need to splurge a bit.  I have created this healthier version that has amazing taste, but is guilt free.  AND it still has lots of “gahlic” as Emeril would say!

Shrimp Scampi

Ingredients:

1 lb Large Uncooked Shrimp, peeled and deveined

2 Tbsp. Garlic, minced

1 Tbsp. EVOO

2 Tbsp. Kerrygold Butter

1 T Fresh Parsley, minced (dried will work as well)

1/2 Lemon, juiced

1 tsp. Italian Seasoning

1/2 c. White Cooking Wine (sub.  chicken stock if needed)

1/4 tsp. Red Pepper Flakes (optional)

salt to taste
