Zucchini Pasta with Creamy Avocado Sauce and Shrimps
Oh delicious shrimps! Feels like an eternity since the last time I had some. I love me some shrimps. But Solal doesn’t. Like at all. I think he would rather eat garbage than eating shrimps. Wait, maybe I’m exaggerating a little bit – I like to do that sometimes. ANYWAYS, when I eat shrimps, it has to be on my own. And the truth is, I don’t mind at all because it means I don’t have to share and I’ll have more (sneaky smile on my face).
This Zucchini Pasta with Creamy Avocado Sauce and Shrimps is kind of my new favorite lunch. I guess mostly because of the zucchini noodles. I mean, isn’t it an amazing concept? All the pasta fun, none of the carbs. And since I’m on a low carb diet lately this is exactly what I need! You will basically always find zoodles in my fridge, ready to be eaten. To make them, I use my new favorite kitchen toy called a Spiralizer. Thanks to this amazing little tool, your zucchini pasta will be ready in no time – and you can use it with tons of other veggies too!
And then there’s this creamy avocado sauce. Guys… don’t get me started on this one or we’ll still be here tomorrow night. See how creamy it is? YUM!

WW Old Points: 8 pts - Points+: 9 pts
- 10 oz/300g cooked shrimps, peeled (weighted with shells)
- 2 medium zucchini, peeled
- 1 avocado
- the juice of 1/2 lemon
- 3 tbsp coconut milk
- 1/4 tsp tabasco
- salt to taste
- Using your Spiralizer, make zucchini noodles. If you don't have one, you can use a julienne slicer or a mandoline (but I've never tried myself).
- Combine all the sauce ingredients in your food processor and process until smooth. Scrape the edges of the bowl as needed.
- Toss zucchini pasta with sauce, top with shrimps and serve.
I like my zoodles raw but you can also cook the zucchini in a non-stick skillet with a little olive oil for about one minute or less.
The coconut milk gives a very subtil coconut flavor (I honestly can't taste it). You can sub it with another milk.
