Shrimp Scampi with Zucchini Noodles Directions

  2. At the same time, heat 2 tbsp olive oil in another pan over medium-high heat. Add sliced shallot, minced garlic and heat until fragrant, or for 2 minutes. Stir occasionally so it does not burn.
  3. Add shrimp and sprinkle with crushed red pepper, sea salt and pepper. Sautee shrimp for about 4 minutes or until pink on both sides.
  4. Add chicken broth, lemon juice, and stir to combine. Allow the mix to continue cooking for one more minute to a boil and then remove from heat.
