Zucchini noodles stand in for pasta in this low-carb shrimp scampi makeover. And you may not even need a spiralizer (the special gadget that makes veggies into curlicues). Check your supermarket produce section: some stores sell spiral-cut zucchini.

Watch how to make this recipe.

Special equipment: a vegetable spiralizer

Heat the butter and 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once the butter melts, add the garlic and red pepper flakes, and cook, stirring, until fragrant and the garlic is just golden, about 2 minutes. Add the wine and lemon zest and cook, reducing the sauce until the alcohol smell is gone and the sauce is a nice golden color, 4 to 5 minutes. Add the shrimp, 1/2 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper and cook, stirring frequently, until the shrimp start to turn pink on the outside but are still translucent inside, about 3 minutes.

Add the zucchini noodles and toss with tongs until they are well coated with the sauce and have wilted slightly, about 3 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. 

Transfer to a serving bowl, drizzle with the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil, sprinkle with parsley.
