Prep shrimp & shrimp broth

  1. Bring water to boil in a deep pot, then add shrimp into the pot. Make sure shrimp have been thawed.
  2. Cook for about 3-5 minutes depending on the size of your shrimp.
  3. Prepare ice water bath for your shrimp.
  4. Once shrimp is cooked, scoop the shrimp out of the pot and submerge into the ice water bath to stop the cooking. Do not throw away the broth.
  5. Then take the shrimp out from ice bath and let it rest on the side.

Boiling pasta

  1. Reserve some shrimp broth (about 100g) on the side for cooking later. Use the remaining water in the pot to cook your pasta.
  2. Cook pasta according to the package instructions.

Cooking the rest of the ingredients

  1. Add some oil to a large pan and bring it to medium heat. Add garlic and scallops, and cook for about 1 minute.
  2. Add tomatoes and shrimp broth and cook it for 3 minutes. The sauce should be slightly thickened.
  3. Add zucchini noodles, then shortly after add cooked pasta to the pan. Add salt and the shrimp and mix well.
  4. Serve with some extra virgin olive oil, salt, pepper and parsley.


  • You can choose to omit the shrimp broth step and go straight to cooking pasta and use unshelled shrimp. Cook the unshelled shrimp with scallops with some oil.
  • You can swap regular pasta with gluten free pasta, or you can choose to have zoodles only.
  • You can use a spiralizer to make your own zucchini noodles or buy zoodles from your local grocery store.
  • Other seafood such as mussels and calamari are amazing in this dish. You can add more scallops if you wish to. Scallops help to create sauce with thicker consistency.
