Gorton’s Simply Bake Shrimp Scampi

Gorton’s Simply Bake Shrimp Scampi
2-3 zucchini, spiralized
1 teaspoon of olive oil
1/2 teaspoon of lemon zest
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
1/2 cup of cherry tomatoes, halved
1 tablespoon parsley, finely chopped
Minced garlic, optional
Grated Parmesan cheese, optional


Step 1

Pop your Shrimp Scampi Bake Perfect Oven Bag onto a cookie sheet and put into a 350°F oven for 25-27 minutes. (Note: one bag makes 2 servings of about 9 shrimp each [18 total in one bag]. Each box comes with one bag.)

Step 2

When the shrimp has about 10 minutes left, begin to prepare your zoodles, lemon zest, parsley and tomatoes.

Step 3

Take the shrimp scampi out of the oven, and then cook your zoodles for 1-2 minutes. In a pan over medium heat, add in the olive oil. Once that’s heated, toss in your zoodles and cook about 1-2 minutes. Once they’re done, transfer zoodles to a large bowl and toss in lemon zest, lemon juice and tomatoes, plus salt and pepper to taste.

Step 4

Plate your zoodles and top with Gorton’s Simply Bake Shrimp Scampi (about 7-9 shrimp is half the bag). Also drizzle some of the sauce from the bag over the shrimp and zoodles for a buttery, lemony taste explosion.

Step 5

Add optional parsley, minced garlic, or parmesan.

Step 6

To serve as an appetizer, serve individual portions on on mini plates. Plate a fork swirl’s worth of zoodles, 1 shrimp and 1 cherry tomato half on each plate.
