This dish is like a fusion – gluten free zucchini noodles, rich and creamy sun-dried tomato sauce and shrimp.

Love the combination! I originally posted this low-carb zucchini noodles with shrimp recipe back in August 2016. Since then I updated it to fit my Keto journey, took new photos and created a recipe video. Instead of milk, I used heavy whipping cream and water to make these creamy zoodles recipe low-carb.

It is easy to make and tastes amazing.

If you are not on low-carb diet, you can definitely use regular pasta. Shirataki noodles work as well.

The sauce is very creamy and loaded with delicious flavors and the pasta is low carb!

How to spiralize zucchini?

Do you have a spiralizer? I do own both a large and a hand held spiralizer. Honestly, for 2-4 zucchini, I definitely prefer using my hand held spiralizer. This is a great tool, that doesn’t take much space in my kitchen.

Besides a spiralizer, you can use an mandolin, potato peeler and also a kitchen aid mixer spiralizer attachment to make your zucchini noodles.

Do you use your spiralizer a lot?
