Shrimp and Sweet Onions over Zucchini Noodles (GAPS, Paleo)

shrimp and sweet  onion

I’m sitting at the computer, trying to figure out what to title the recipe. Nothing I can think of makes it sound as yummy as it is. So I’ll name it after I”m done writing it down, I guess.

I had a bad cooking day. I overcooked my “noodles”, and then dropped half of them on the floor. I salvaged the noodles that were not actually touching the floor (sigh). The dinner was still worth it, definitely :).

This is another recipe that’s so simple, I hate to even call it a recipe. But the quicker the better, right?

Garlic Shrimp 

*2 Tbsp grassfed butter -or- refined coconut oil

*1 medium sweet onion, quartered and sliced

*1 clove garlic, pressed or minced

*2 Tbsp white or red wine (optional)

*5 drops fish sauce

*1 lb shrimp

*Sea salt to taste (Celtic, Himalayan)

*freshly ground pepper

Melt butter in a skillet and add onions. Cook until onions are soft. Add garlic, balsamic vinegar, and fish sauce. Salt to taste. Add shrimp and cook until pink. Serve over zucchini noodles. Top with freshly ground pepper.

Zucchini Noodles

Cut 3 medium zucchini into “noodles” with a vegetable peeler or spiral slicer. Add  2 teaspoons salt, and place in a colander to drain for 30 minutes. Bring a pot of salted water to boil. Add zucchini; cook for 2-3 minutes. Drain.

This equals about 2 servings. Enjoy!
