Print Recipe


  • ¾ lb shrimps peeled & cleaned
  • 9 oz broccoli head (a medium sized head) cut into florets
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 lemon juice & zest
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 cup cream heavy
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese shredded
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 pack miracle noodles


  • In a large pan or cast iron skillet heat the butter on a medium heat
  • Add the garlic and cook for 2 minutes
  • Add the broccoli florets and shrimp with the seasoning and saute for 3-5 minutes, turning the shrimp over regularly to ensure even cooking.
  • When the shrimp is pink and cooked through, add the cream, cheese, lemon juice and rind.
  • Cook for a further 3 minutes until the mixture has slightly thickened.
  • Add the low carb or vegetable noodles (I washed my noodles thoroughly before adding them to the pan)
  • Serve with a grated parmesan and chopped parsley. (Optional)
