Ready for another Backpacking Dinner recipe? Here is Dehydrated Low-Carb Shrimp Scampi with Zoodles. This is one of the simplest recipes for a dehydrated dinner but there’s no sacrifice on flavor!Jump to Recipe
If you follow me on Instagram or my blog, you might know I am a HUGE fan of Low-Carb, High-Veg meals. This is especially true when I am in the backcountry. Last year on my Delta Dall Sheep hunt I packed High-Fat food and it changed my life! Which sounds a bit dramatic, but I was able to get over 3,000 kcals to weigh about 1 pound!
Dehydrated Low-Carb Shrimp Scampi is yummy enough you don’t really need another reason to make it, but here are 5 reasons anyway. (These are the same 5 reason I gave on my last post, Dehydrated Berbere Chicken Soup, but it is I take every chance I get to get up on my soapbox!)
Another reason I love Dehydrated Low-Carb Shrimp Scampi is the Zoodles! Zoodles, impressively, rehydrated in the field. Because they are raw when they go into the dehydrator when you add hot water, they have a pleasant texture and aren’t too mushy. This will not be the last recipe I make with zoodles.
Zoodles are a healthy alternative to noodles in the backcountry or at home. If you have never made them before I recommend you check out this post from Downshiftology. If you are as big of a fan of them as I am, I recommend you check out my recipes for Advieh Zoodles (Persian Inspired) or Healthy Pizza Zoodles for Meal Prep.
This recipe is for one serving, but you can easily make more than one batch at a time.
To increase to desired calories and grams of fat in your Dehydrated Low-Carb Shrimp Scampi with Zoodles just add butter or butter powder. MCT oil would also work if butter is not a good option for you.
Below are the exact Mylar Bags I have.
These are the mylar bags I will buy next time. The ones I have worked great, but I have been inspired by Heather’s Choice, I think a little zip-lock top is super handy once you have filled the bags with hot water.
I also recommend adding an oxygen absorber in the bag before you seal it (remember to remove it before you add hot water).
As extra insurance, store your packaged Low-Card Dehydrated Meals in the freezer or refrigerator)
