Shrimp is naturally low carb and is a great choice for people following Keto lifestyle. This recipe is a cheat shrimp scampi linguine. The “linguine” part is actually spiralized summer squash. This delicious vegetable is absolutely low carb and is an ideal pasta alternative. It is delicately flavored and will not overpower the tasty scampi sauce.
You will need a spiralizer tool of your choice to turn summer squash into the noodles.
The vegetable also tends to be very moist: salting the squash linguini and leaving it for a half hour before cooking will draw a great deal of water out. Just blot the excess water with paper towels and sauté the noodles for about 5 minutes. This step is a must if you want to achieve the best results and not end up with watery, flavorless dish. The rest of the scampi recipe is pretty basic and traditional. Butter, chicken stock, red pepper flakes, shrimp and lemon juice.
Toss the squash pasta together with the sauce and the shrimp and let the noodles soak in all the wonderful juices. This dish is sure to satisfy your pasta cravings without carb overload. And it is super easy to make. Just 30 minutes and you have wholesome and nutritious shrimp scampi on your plate without all the extra calories. You will love this recipe so much it will become your Keto diet regular. And it is easy enough even for the beginner cooks. Just simple, affordable ingredients come together to create this healthy and tasty shrimp scampi.
