I find it hard to believe that this is the first zoodle recipe I’m posting here on the blog considering I’ve been enjoying spiralized zucchini (along with the rest of the internet) for quite a while now. If you ever want to really clean up your eating and bulk up on vegetables, start experimenting with your spiralizer – there are a ton of ways to enjoy veggies this way, the ideas are seriously endless.

Today’s recipe is from my friend Gina’s new cookbook, Skinnytaste Fast and Slow. You may already be familiar with her blog, Skinnytaste, and first cookbook The Skinnytaste Cookbook. We are big fans of Gina’s recipes in my house – my kids are constantly asking me to make this Loaded Baked Potato Soup and my husband absolutely loves this Slow Cooker Turkey Picadillo. Her recipes really are exactly how I like to cook – simple, flavorful and filled with real ingredients.

My husband and I love shrimp (our children do not), so this is our kind of dinner. I can not express to you enough how quickly these Skinnytaste Zoodles with Shrimp and Feta come together. This last month or so I’ve been really struggling with some extra weight I have put on and I am trying to make dinners light but filled with protein. This is that kind of dinner. Works out perfectly on nights when I have just enough leftovers to feed the kids but I can treat myself and my husband to something different.

If you are not interested in zoodles and are in the mood for something more hearty, here’s how to saute shrimp for pasta – I can’t get enough shrimp and pasta dishes!

Enjoy the recipe and have a great rest of the week!

Healthy and simple, this Skinnytaste Zoodles with Shrimp and Feta recipe comes together in just 15 minutes!


Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 12 peeled and deveined jumbo shrimp (1/2 pound)
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 medium zucchini (14 ounces total), spiralized using the thick setting and cut into 6-inch lengths
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 ounces crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon grated lemon zest

Instructions

  1. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 teaspoon of the oil over medium-high heat. Season the shrimp with 1/2 teaspoon of the oregano, 1/8 teaspoon of the salt, and pepper to taste. Add the shrimp to the skillet and cook until they are just opaque, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.
  2. Heat the remaining 1 teaspoon oil in the same skillet and add the garlic. Cook, stirring, until golden, 30 to 60 seconds (be careful not to burn it). Add the zucchini noodles, the remaining 1/2 teaspoon oregano, the remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt, and pepper to taste. Cook, stirring, until the zucchini is crisp-tender, 1 1/2 minutes. Add the lemon juice, stir and remove the pan from heat.
  3. Divide the noodles between 2 plates. Dividing evenly, top with the shrimp, feta, and lemon zest. Serve hot.

  1. This looks so light and delicious! Personally I’m not a fan of shrimp, but this looks like it would be absolutely delicious even without it!

  2. That looks fantastic! I never would thought to add feta with shrimp.

  3. I’m not a shrimp eater, but this does look delicious, especially with all that feta cheese-yum! The cookbook sounds great-I’d love to try some new slow cooker recipes this fall. Have a wonderful weekend Aggie!

  4. What spiralizer do you have? I’m woefully behind on this trend lol

  5. I made this last week for myself and the hubby. And we LOVED it! I found the recipe while looking for prawn dishes online and came upon this one. I was so excited about this that I ran out and bought a spiralizer. I ended up marinated the prawns with clubhouse greek seasoning and a little fresh lemon juice and a tiny bit of garlic about 20mins before cooking them. I also squeezed a little bit of lemon and greek seasoning onto the zoodles while the prawns cooked. My husband and I love lemon so we added more than the recipe called for. This was such a light meal and perfect for a summer day and great when paired with Kim Crawford Pinot Gris. I look forward to trying many more of your recipes.
