Healthy Shrimp Scampi - low carb & paleo

Last night I experimented with dinner and it was definitely a winner winner!  I wanted to have shrimp scampi but without the pasta noodles and I wanted to have it in one dish to put in the oven.  Sometimes my experiments are a flop but this one turned out amazing even the kids gobbled it up.  We didn't have any leftovers at all!


Shrimp Scampi Bake - low carb & paleo

2 lbs shrimp (you could also do half scallops too)
2 zucchini cut into ribbons on mandela then into strips/noodles
7 large leaves of swiss chard cut into long strips
1 stick butter
5 chopped garlic cloves
2 lemons
1 T Greek Seasoning
salt & pepper

After washing and cutting up my chard and zucchini, I placed it in my casserole dish and topped it with my peeled and detailed raw shrimp.  Then I added my greek seasoning on top of the shrimp, then the garlic.  I squeezed the lemons on top and then chopped a little bit up of a half and put on top of the shrimp.  Add your butter - I cut it up into sections to place around the top.  Then add salt and pepper.  Bake at 375 F for about 30 minutes.

Bon Appetit!

  1. We enjoy Shrimp Scampi so much and I always have a bag of frozen shrimp in the freezer. Can’t wait to try this recipe. Thank you.
