Shrimp Zoodles Recipe

Do you ever wonder how recipes end up on The Dinner-Mom? Let me tell you the tale of Shrimp Zoodles…which just might inspire your own creation.

  1. Mediterranean Chicken Bake. It’s regularly featured on our dinner rotation. Chicken is topped with zucchini, artichokes and tomatoes, drizzled with balsamic vinegar and topped with feta cheese. It’s delightful. When I’m out of chicken or want to mix things up I use shrimp.
  2. Zoodles. They are easy to make and are well…fun! Hmmm…Mediterranean Chicken Bake uses zucchini.
  3. Shrimp and zoodles each cook quickly on the stove-top and make for a quick dinner. Plus everything cooks in one pan. Hmmm…I love easy recipes and I bet my readers would too.
  4. I’ve got some leftover sundried tomatoes. Hmmm…I bet those would give a punch of flavor.
  5. The Recipe Redux is showcasing nuts. Yesss! A topping of toasted pine nuts would be awesome on Shrimp Zoodles.

And, that’s how this recipe evolved.

Shrimp Zoodles – How It’s Done

Zucchini Noodles or Zoodles

I’m hoping you’re into the spiralizing craze. If not, just thinly slice the zucchini.

My handy, dandy hand-held spiralizer is perfect for zucchini noodles. The thick setting works best. Don’t bother to peel the zucchini first. Pick out some of the dark green pieces at the end of the process.

Pine Nuts for Shrimp Zoodles Recipe

Pine nuts take on a buttery flavor when they are browned. Bake 10 minutes in a 350 degree oven or in a pan on the stove-top. Honestly, I feel like a sprinkling of nuts makes anything just a little more interesting and gives it a healthy boost too. If you’re nutty for nuts too, then check out the recipes below featuring all kinds of nuts from my nutritionist and healthy foodie friends at The Recipe Redux.

Shrimp Zoodles Recipe

Stir artichokes and sundried tomatoes into sauteed zoodles and remove everything to a serving dish. Simply pour the shrimp into the same skillet and arrange them in a single layer. Cook for about 3 minutes on one side and then flip to the other until the shrimp are bright pink and cooked through. Do this in batches if your pan is too small.

Top with feta cheese and pine nuts and ENJOY!
