Healthy Shrimp Scampi Florentine Recipe

Do you guys love shrimp as much as I do? I’ve already got one shrimp recipe up on here, but we can always use more, right? I had a hankering for shrimp scampi last week, but shrimp scampi alone is basically shrimp, butter, and lemon, and sometimes a massive bowl of pasta. So how could I get my shrimp scampi fix, but bump up the healthy factor? I threw in some stuff I already had handy, spiralized some zucchini, and ended up with what I’m calling “Healthy Shrimp Scampi Florentine!”

Healthy shrimp scampi! An easy, healthy, and delicious dinner recipe the whole family will love! Shrimp, pasta, and lots of veggies make this a balanced meal that is super yummy.

Kid-approved!

Even my 18 month old loved this recipe! He likes shrimp… perhaps that makes him a strange 18 month old, but whatever. He tends to turn up his nose at meats and other protein sources, so if he’ll eat shrimp, then I’m all about it! 🙂

I know spiralizers aren’t something everyone has, but I LOVE mine. It makes interesting pasta-like variations of various veggies. I mostly use zucchini, sweet potato, or butternut squash, but you can spiralize just about anything that fits on the contraption! Check it out on Amazon here!

I also used my favorite (BIG) pan for this recipe. I use this thing pretty much every day, it is fantastic!
