Paleo Shrimp Scampi

Shrimp scampi sounds redundant, but in fact, scampi are actually prawns or lamgoustines. Not having access to this same species of shellfish here in the states, the Italians brought their scampi sauce from back home and cooked it with shrimp. Hence the name. This paleo shrimp scampi is as good as the real thing. Just serve over spaghetti squash for a much healthier meal.

  1. Dredge shrimp in coconut flour. Heat a Tablespoon of oil in a heavy-bottomed skillet over medium high. Place the shrimp in the pan, without overcrowding. You may have to work in batches. Sauté shrimp until just golden, about 2 minutes then flip and cook for another minute. Remove the shrimp from the pan and repeat the process if needed.
  2. Add the wine, stock, worcestershire sauce, garlic, and lemon juice. Simmer on medium-high for about 5 minutes. Whisk in butter, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Lower heat to medium, add shrimp to heat through, tossing to coat well with sauce.
  3. Scoop squash out of its shell and toss with the shrimp and sauce. Add the parsley, season with salt and pepper and serve.
