Ingredients

SAUCE:

  • 1/4 cup coconut aminos OR low sodium soy sauce / gluten free tamari
  • 2-3 Tablespoons erythritol OR monk fruit OR coconut sugar / honey
  • 2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar OR rice vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon grated ginger
  • Himalyan salt, black pepper and red chili flakes to taste; optional

FOR THE ZOODLES:

  • 12-13 large shrimp thawed and peeled
  • 2-3 Tablespoons avocado oil coconut oil, butter OR olive oil
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1 bell pepper chopped (I used yellow)
  • 5-6 medium zucchini cut into noodles using a spiralizer or a vegetable peeler

Optional for Garnish:

  • 1 green onion sliced thinly
  • sesame seeds

For Meal Prep:

  • Lunch containers
  • 1/2 teaspoon xanthum gum (OR 1 teaspoon arrowroot starch + 2 teaspoons water)

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the aminos, sweetener of choice, vinegar, sesame oil, garlic, ginger, salt & pepper - to taste.

  2. In a large bowl, combine shrimp with salt, pepper, and drizzle 1-2 tablespoons of sauce over the shrimp.
  3. Heat 1-2 tablespoons of oil in a large skillet / sauté pan on medium - medium-high heat. Add shrimp and cook for 1 minute, turning halfway, until almost pink and cooked through. Add in the bell peppers and cook for another minute, until slightly softened. Pour in the sauce and turn the heat to high. Add xanthum gum (if using) OR arrowroot starch slurry and allow the sauce to bubble and thicken while stirring - add more water, only as needed - a little at a time if the sauce is too thick. Season to taste with salt, black pepper and/or red chili flakes.

  4. *If cooking the zucchini noodles, add into the pan and use tongs to toss and coat with sauce. Cook for 1-2 minutes until zucchini is just tender but still firm. Be careful not to overcook.
  5. Remove from heat and drizzle extra sauce in the pan over shrimp and serve immediately, garnished with green onions and sesame seeds if desired.
  6. For meal prep: Divide evenly into lunch containers. Store in fridge for up to 3 days.

Recipe Notes

*do not overcook for longer than 2 minutes or else noodles will get too soft and mushy. You can also serve the chicken over raw zucchini noodles if desired.
