I’ve got a boatload of low carb spaghetti squash recipes coming up here on IBIH, because after almost a year of living in Belize with nary a spaghetti squash to be found – they are suddenly ERRY. WHERE.
I’m not complaining mind you – I was, and still am, very excited to have stocked up on spaghetti squash these last few weeks.
I’m also broke now, because they are crazy expensive like so much of the non tropical produce you can get here. Sigh…
In my previous non-keto life, shrimp scampi was one of my go-to recipes on weeknights, or when we were having a big group of friends over. It literally comes together in minutes – throw just a few flavorful ingredients together in a pan and you’re done.
Just because I don’t eat pasta anymore, there’s no reason not to enjoy all the other perks of this classic dish – so I give you this easy keto shrimp scampi recipe – made with spaghetti squash of course.
Now if spaghetti squash is hard to get where you are, or you just don’t want to spend eleventy billion dollars on one for this recipe – feel free to serve this over spiralized zucchini noodles and it will be just as good!
Or, if your non-keto family just has to has their pasta – no problem, just make the scampi and serve yours over a keto friendly veggie noodle and theirs on the traditional kind. We’re 100% about solutions and preventing family mutiny over here. ?
If you forego the parmesan cheese on top (I just teared up a little) and replace the white wine with chicken or veggie broth, then this easy keto shrimp scampi recipe is not only low carb, but also Paleo and even Whole 30 compliant.
