Garlic Chili Shrimp with Pesto Zoodles


  • 2 large zucchini, spiralized
  • 1 large bag frozen shrimp, defrosted (I used wild caught)
  • 3 tbsp pesto
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 tsp chili flakes (or more if you like it hot)
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley, roughly chopped
  • Black pepper
  • Olive oil, for sautéing


  1. Spiralize zucchini and set aside.
  2. Prepare pesto and set aside (make your own or use store bought).
  3. Defrost shrimp and remove shells.
  4. Heat a cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add olive oil. Once hot, add in shrimp, garlic, chili flake parsley and black pepper.
  5. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side until cooked through and nicely pink. Remove from the skillet and place in a bowl.
  6. To the same skillet, add in zucchini noodles and pesto. Cook for roughly 5-7 minutes until desired texture is reached.
  7. Add noodles to a bowl and top with shrimp and fresh parsley.
  8. Eat and enjoy!
