In case you ever wonder how recipes end up on The Dinner-Mom…here’s the evolution of this Shrimp Zoodles Recipe…which just might inspire your own creation.

  1. The Mediterranean inspired flavor combination of zucchini, artichokes and tomatoes topped with feta cheese is popular with our readers and at our house. Mediterranean Chicken Bake uses these ingredients with balsamic vinaigrette drizzled over the top. It’s delightful! I guess this is the starting point.
  2. What would be a quick and easy variation of this recipe? Hmmmm.
  3. Make zucchini noodles They’re just plain fun and cook quickly on the stove-top!  We make them all the time for Zucchini Noodle Alfredo and Crustless Zucchini Pie. In fact, they can be made ahead of time! Time saver!
  4. Shrimp complements these ingredients and cooks quickly on the stove-top too so everything can be prepared in just one pan. Score!
  5. I happen to have sundried tomatoes on hand which would give a nice punch of flavor.
  6. Toppings? Toasted pine nuts would perfectly finish Shimp Zoodles.
  7. Don’t forget the feta cheese!

It takes longer to think about the process then it does to make it!

How to Make Shrimp Zoodles – Helpful Tips!

Spiralize 2 large zucchini. The exact amount is not critical. And, if you’re not into the spiralizing craze, then thinly slice the zucchini.

A hand-held spiralizer, using the thick-cut, is perfect for the job. Don’t bother to peel the zucchini first. Instead, pick out some of the dark green pieces when you’re done spiralizing, if necessary.

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 have extras, check out Meatloaf Muffins which uses them too.

Add artichokes and sundried tomatoes to the pan with the zoodles. When the artichokes are warmed, remove everything to a serving dish.

Toss shrimp with olive oil and Italian Seasoning and cook in the same pan as the zoodles. We love this technique for pan-frying shrimp and use it all the time! For a spicy version, check out Spicy Shrimp and “Cauliflower Grits.

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 using a small pan.
