Garlicy Shrimp & Zucchini Noodles

Best dinner evrrrrrrr. Also, seriously, the biggest, most filling 450 calories I have probably ever eaten (maybe that’s not true), but either way this was DE-LI-CIOUS! Macros for the recipe are listed in my log below. It was pretty amazing how much food this was and how few calories it was. Also, so many nutritious veggies. I was super happy with this dish I will definitely be making it again!

Ingredients: 

  • 7oz frozen shrimp
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 a medium onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 1 medium tomato chopped
  • 1 cup fresh spinach (I forgot to put this in my log… )
  • 1 medium zucchini sliced thin with an apple peeler
  • 1/2 cup water (depending on how it looks… if your tomato is bigger you might not need this)
  • 100g cooked rice (feel free to omit if paleo or low carb)
  • salt to taste

Method:

Heat the olive oil on med-high in a large skillet. Saute the onions and garlic until softened and slightly brown. Add the tomatoes, spinach, shrimp, and zucchini noodles. Saute until the shrimp have cooked through and the veggies are softened, adding water if necessary to keep it saucy. Mix in the rice if you’re having it & season to taste. This made a HUGE portion, and was really really good.
