Caribbean Shellfish on Zoodles

Caribbean Shellfish on Zoodles

This delightful dish was a very pleasant surprise.  DELICIOUS!  And check out the amazing nutritional stats below!  Extremely healthy food, this one is!  It uses my Puerto Rican Sofrito Sauce in yet another wonderful combination of flavors and is served on a bed of zucchini noodles, known as “zoodles” in the low-carb world.  It can be served on regular pasta for your non-low-carb guests.  The dish can also be made with shrimp or lobster.   If you are not still in the Atkins Induction Phase, the addition of 1/4 c. white wine to the seafood mixture would be divine, otherwise use the stock as noted below.  As written, this recipe is suitable for Atkins Induction and most other Ketogenic  diets.  If the cheeses are omitted it would be suitable for Primal and Paleo as well.
