Shrimp Scampi (AIP/ Paleo)

Shrimp Scampi AIP Paleo

I am all about easy weeknight dinners that I can throw together in under 30 minutes. This Shrimp Scampi (AIP/ Paleo) is just about as easy as it gets. With only a few ingredients, this dish really packs a flavor punch! The shrimp are buttery, garlicy and succulent with a slight lemony kick at the end. These shrimp are seriously so good all on their own!

I love to serve this overtop cassava flour pasta by Jovial! It has become my new obsession. I also really like roasted spaghetti squash too. Both are really simple to make and require minimal effort. 

Serve this shrimp along with my Crispy Roasted Broccoli or Zesty Salad.

Shrimp Scampi (AIP/ Paleo)

Serves: 4

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes


2lbs shrimp, peeled and deveined

2 TBS olive oil

1 ½ tsp salt

Pinch of black pepper, omit for elimination-phase AIP

4 cloves of garlic, minced

Juice of half a lemon

Cassava pasta or roasted spaghetti squash


If using frozen shrimp, make sure they are completely thawed. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet on medium heat. Once hot, add the shrimp and season with salt and pepper. Saute the shrimp for about 5 minutes, then add in the garlic and lemon juice and continue sauteing for 7 – 10 more minutes or until the shrimp are pink. Serve the shrimp by themselves or on top of grain or gluten-free pasta/ spaghetti squash. 
If using cassava flour pasta (I am OBSESSED with this brand by Jovial) cook the pasta according to package directions. If using spaghetti squash, cut the squash in half, remove the seeds, drizzle with salt and olive oil and roast at 400 degrees for 20 – 30 minutes.
