Ingredients
  • 2 Tbsp avocado oil
  • 4 Tbsp butter or ghee
  • 1 lb raw shrimp peeled and deviened
  • 1 cup white wine or chicken broth
  • 4 cloves garlic peeled and minced
  • 2 tsp lemon zest
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder optional
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt to taste
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 3 to 4 medium-sized zucchini squash spiralized
  • 2 Tbsp fresh parsley chopped
Instructions
  1. Heat the avocado oil and butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Stir together the oil and butter. Once the butter has melted and the skillet is hot, add the shrimp. Cook 2 minutes, flip and cook for another 1 minute. Add the white wine, garlic, lemon zest, onion powder, sea salt and black pepper.

  2. Stir and allow mixture to come to a full boil. Continue cooking until sauce has thickened and reduced by a third of its original volume, about 5 minutes.

  3. Add the zucchini noodles to the skillet and stir them into the sauce. Cover and cook 2 to 3 minutes, until noodles have softened but are still al dente.

  4. Remove the lid and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until noodles have reached desired done-ness and everything is well-coated in thick sauce.
