Shrimp “Pasta” in Paleo Vodka Sauce

shrimp with vodka sauce

This was AMAZING!! It may not look that great but it really is. My fiance doesn’t love shrimp and he even said this was one of his favorites!

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb shrimp (smaller size is better for this recipe)
  • 2 sweet potatoes, spiralized into noodles
  • 3/4 can Trader Joe’s coconut cream
  • 1/2 cup no-salt added tomato sauce
  • 3 tbsp vodka (optional)
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 2 tsp basil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tsp parsley
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil

Heat a large pot with 1 tbsp coconut oil on med-high heat. Put the spiralized sweet potato in this pot and cook for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until they are soft/browned in some areas. While the noodles cook, heat a pan on med-high heat with 1 tbsp coconut oil. Cook the shrimp on the pan for about 5 minutes on each side, or until both sides browned. Reduce heat to low, and add 1/2 can coconut cream, 1/4 cup tomato sauce, 3 tbsp vodka, salt, pepper, 1tsp basil, and 1 tsp parsley. The noodles should be finishing up at this point, and when they do, reduce heat to low also and add 1/4 can coconut cream, 1/4 cup tomato sauce, salt, pepper, 1tsp basil, and 1 tsp parsley. Stir the noodles until sauce is spread throughout. Turn off heat on both, and serve the shrimp over the noodles and squeeze lemon on top before serving. Be sure to pour any extra sauce all over! 🙂
