Shrimp Scampi with Beet Noodles is a better-for-you way to eat one of your favorite foods.




  1. Preheat your oven to 450°F. Beets can be messy to prepare, so you may want to consider wearing gloves when cleaning them. For this recipe, you will cut off both ends of the beets {the greens and the root} and peel them. To make the noodles, you will use a spiralizer. Simply place the beet inside the spiralizer and turn the handle to make these beet noodles. I recommend preparing one beet per person.
  2. Place the spiralized beets on a cookie sheet. Add salt and pepper to taste {and any other spices you may enjoy} and toss them with a drizzle of corn oil. This helps to roast them at a high heat within your oven. Corn oil has a smoke point higher than most cooking oils at 450°F and performs well in a variety of cooking applications. Bake for exactly 6 minutes, then remove from the oven. Your beet noodles are ready!

  3. To prepare your shrimp, add a teaspoon of corn oil to a saute pan. Add five to six jumbo shrimp shrimp per person. This is a great romantic dinner}. I like to peel and devein my shrimp, but leave the tails on for a restaurant-style preparation.

  4. Add two cloves of crushed garlic, the juice of one lemon, and salt and pepper to taste. Saute the shrimp for 2 minutes on each side as shrimp cook very quickly. Midway through, sprinkle with panko bread crumbs for a little crunch.

  5. When they are pink and cooked-through, remove from the heat, add them atop your beet noodles, and sprinkle with freshly-chopped parsley. Your delicious Shrimp Scampi with Beet Noodles is ready to serve in just minutes.
