Guilt-Free Shrimp Scampi

Shrimp Scampi

Ingredients

  • 1lb jumbo shrimp (raw)
  • 3 cups of your favorite white wine
  • Olive oil
  • 1 onion (diced)
  • 1 cup mushrooms (sliced)
  • ¼ cup chopped parsley
  • 3 zucchinis
  • Salt, pepper, garlic powder (2 tsp each)

Directions

  • In a large sauté pan or wok, sauté the diced onions and sliced mushrooms on medium-high heat with 2 tbsp of olive oil and 1 tsp salt, pepper, and garlic powder.  Once the onions and mushrooms have started to cook down (about 10 minutes), add the 3 cups of white wine and let simmer for about 10 more minutes.
  • While the onion and mushroom mixture is cooking, use a mandolin to shred the zucchini into strands like spaghetti. (see photo above)
  • Remove shells from the raw shrimp and rinse thoroughly in cool water.  Add to the onion and mushroom mixture.  The shrimp should cook in a few minutes depending on their size.  When they are a bright pink color, they are done! (Overcooking shrimp will cause them to have a rubbery texture)  Add the ¼ cup of parsley just before serving.
  • In a separate sauté pan, add the zucchini strands and toss with 2 tbsp olive oil and 1 tsp salt, pepper, and garlic powder on medium heat.  (this should only take a few minutes as you only want to warm the zucchini through instead of cooking it completely)
  • Portion out zucchini into bowls, top with the onion, mushroom, and shrimp mixture and enjoy!
