This simple dish with a Cajun flavor can be ready in 30 minutes, so its a good one to make on a weeknight when you’re tired after a long day at work. It’s delicious, nutritious and very filling. It is suitable for all phases of Atkins, Keto diets, Primal and Paleo as well. Another method of construction would be to make “noodles” of the zucchini using a julienne peeler or noodler tool and serve the other on top. Your call. Flavor will pretty much be the same either way you make it.
3/4 lb. peeled shrimp
4 oz. bacon chopped coarsely
10 oz. zucchini, quartered lengthwise and sliced
2 oz. onion, sliced
3 oz. bell pepper (any color will do)
5 fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 T. butter
½ tsp. my Cajun Seafood Spice Blend
DIRECTIONS: Brown bacon over high heat in a non-stick skillet. Add the onion and saute until it slightly softens. Add the squash and saute until it is beginning to look translucent. Add the bell pepper and mushrooms. Stir and saute a couple minutes. Add Cajun Seafood Spice Blend along with the shrimp. Stir and saute just until the shrimp are opaque and have curled, or about 3-4 minutes. Serve at once.
