Ingredients for Shrimp Zucchini Pasta 

Zucchini Spirals – Purchase frozen zucchini pasta spirals to keep prep extra fast, you can find them in the frozen food aisle. If you can’t find them in the frozen food section, make homemade zucchini noodles in place.

Vegetables Choose colorful and crunchy veggies like bell peppers and carrots. To keep it lower in carbs, omit the carrots and replace them with broccoli or cauliflower florets, mushrooms, shredded cabbage, or Brussels sprouts.

Shrimp Use medium sized shrimp, 41-50 or 51-60 shrimps per pound, depending on where you get them. They’re bite-sized, quick to cook, and easy to eat. You can substitute thinly sliced chicken in place.

Stir Fry Sauce This simple sauce is made from ingredients that are likely already in the pantry and refrigerator. Adjust the amount of sugar or add some extra sriracha for some heat. In a pinch, a bottle of stir-fry or teriyaki sauce will work.

Toppings Top this shrimp zucchini pasta with some sesame seeds, chopped scallions, or crushed peanuts.
