In my family we are huge seafood fans.  When I was growing up, seafood was always a real treat.  We didn’t have it often except for on special occasions, such as birthdays and holidays.  For our birthdays we always got to pick what we wanted to eat, and I always picked seafood.  I love seafood, especially shrimp, which is one of my favorite foods.  My husband’s family was the same way and when we met we even went out to seafood for one of our first dates.  Eating seafood always reminds me of being at the beach and gives me memories of my previous vacations at the beach.
 
My kids also really like seafood and we like to incorporate it into our meals, since it is a favorite of everyone.  I also like to make it more than just for special occasions, because seafood doesn’t have to be expensive or hard to make.  One of my favorite things to do is to use frozen seafood, like SeaPak Shrimp & Seafood Co., to easily incorporate seafood into our meals.  It is really a blank slate and you can make a lot of different meals using frozen shrimp.
 
 
Shrimp is America’s #1 seafood and this versatile and affordable seafood offers a healthier and leaner alternative when compared to other sources of protein. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) recommends that people eat at least two servings of seafood each week. However, the average American consumes less than one serving a week meaning that, to meet recommended consumption, we need to double our seafood intake.  SeaPak makes it easy to bring the taste of the coast to the table. SeaPak is highly regarded for its adherence to the utmost quality standards and for its commitment to resource management and sustainability.
I often use SeaPak frozen shrimp when I want to cook seafood for my family because it is affordable and it helps me to save time in the kitchen.  We usually like to pair the shrimp with pasta.  Last week I decided instead of using pasta and to try to get my kids to eat more vegetables, that we would pair SeaPak frozen shrimp scampi with zucchini noodles. I loved how easy this dish was to make and that my son was able to help.  His favorite thing was helping me stir the shrimp scampi in the skillet. To make the zucchini noodles or zoodles as we called them, I used a spiralizer, but you may be able to use a grater as well.
 
This Shrimp Scampi with Zucchini Noodles was an easy meal that was very delicious and flavorful.  Since this meal includes shrimp it seems really fancy, but it only took about 10 minutes for it to cook up.  This meal is so easy that I can make it on a weeknight and feel good that my kids are getting the seafood they need in their diets, plus the vegetables they need.
 
The SeaPak frozen shrimp scampi was the perfect shrimp to use for this dish because it is so easy to prepare.  I like how it comes with the sauce and I do not have to worry about cleaning the shrimp or taking the shells off.  I added some white wine, lemon juice, and Parmesan cheese to the shrimp scampi to add some different flavors to it.  I liked using the frozen shrimp scampi as a starter for this dish.  My whole family loved this and we can’t wait to make it again.  We plan on making it the next time we have guests at our house.
