Just think of how many delicious varieties of foods become available if you change the main ingredient into the zucchini. Noodles, pancakes, lasagna, muffin, bread can all be modified and applied for keto dieting using zucchini.

One thing to remember while working in the kitchen with zucchini is that it doesn’t require a long time to cook. If overcooked, it will become too soft and soggy and lose all vitamin qualities.

Therefore, an average time for zucchini to get ready is just between 2-5 minutes, depending on the thickness you choose and other ingredients.

Heavy cream and Parmesan cheese are one of the most classic French styled ways of making shrimp. It easy soaks in white, buttery substances by fully opening its aroma and becoming even tenderer.

This easy dish is better to be consumed immediately after freshly cooked since when it becomes cold or gets reheated, the shrimp will lose its qualities and zoodles will be completely destroyed.


Let’s Ketofy It!

Use a vegetable spiralizer to make the noodle shape from zucchini. Set aside.

In a frying pan over medium heat, melt butter then add garlic, red pepper flakes and stir constantly for 1 minute.

Add shrimp into the pan and cook for 3 minutes until it becomes pink. Season with salt and pepper. Once the shrimp is cooked, remove the shrimp only and put in a bowl, set aside.

Add heavy cream, lemon juice, and Parmesan in the same pan and bring to boil.
