Garlic Tiger Shrimp with Zoodles
If you’re in the mood for a tasty meal that’s also light and nutritious, look no further than our Garlic Tiger Shrimp with Zoodles! We toss shrimp in with some fresh zoodles to make a complete meal. Zoodles are spiralized vegetables that imitate pasta noodles, so you get all the fun of noodles with all the healthy benefits of veggies!
Lauren typically shies away from seafood, but it didn’t take long for her to warm up to these shrimp. In addition to being delicious and good for you, this meal is relatively easy to prepare and quick to make. You can make Garlic Tiger Shrimp with zoodles for lunch on a busy day around the house, or as a nice change of pace for dinner without much effort after a hectic work day.
When we first made this recipe, we didn’t have a spiralizer yet, so we bought zoodles from the store. They’re a bit more expensive than spiralizing zucchini on your own, but they make this meal even simpler. If you’re in the market for a spiralizer, we now have this spiralizer and absolutely love it! We can now whip up perfect zoodles in just a few minutes.
We like using a slow cooker for shrimp, whether we start with uncooked or pre-cooked crustaceans. Uniform heat distribution allows for thorough cooking through the whole pot, so it’s a great way for all the flavors to mingle and mix together. You can find slow cookers in a variety of sizes to best fit your needs. We use this 6 quart oval Crock Pot, a model of the original slow cooker.
The olive oil provides a nice medium for the flavor of the pepper and garlic to permeate each shrimp, giving every bite a pleasant little kick. Give it a try for yourself and let us know what you think!
Get shrimp that have already been de-veined and de-shelled from your local seafood counter to make preparation as easy as possible. All we had to do was pop off the tail of each shrimp and throw them in the pot!
