Keto Shrimp Alfredo with Zoodles

Keto Shrimp Alfredo with Zoodles

Alfredo pasta served traditionally with pasta is a high carb meal. Swapping out the pasta with zucchini noodles (zoodles) makes it possible to enjoy this delicious keto shrimp alfredo on a low carb or keto diet. If you are looking for something without zoodles, check out my garlic butter shrimp with capers recipe.

Now days, it is possible to get frozen zucchini noodles at the grocery store. When I started keto and was looking for noodle alternatives, I came across many people using a spiralizer to make noodles out of zucchini. I invested in one a while back and have used it extensively to make many noodle inspired dishes.

Shrimp alfredo was always a favorite of mine, and experimenting with zucchini noodles I came up with this delicious shrimp alfredo with zoodles recipe. One drawback to zoodles is the water content tends to get in the sauce. To prevent this from happening, I dry roast the zoodles with salt (about a 1/2 tsp per zucchini) to get the water out.
