Servings 1


  • 2 teaspoons water
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon gelatin grass-fed
  • 10 oz raw shrimp shelled and deveined
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1 t dried parsley
  • Pinch of cayenne
  • avocado oil
  • 1 zucchini or yellow squash spiralized
  • butter or butter powder


  1. To bloom gelatin, mix water, lemon juice, and grass-fed gelatin in a small bowl. Let sit until gelatin has absorbed all the liquid and become firm.
  2. In a skillet, cook shrimp and garlic with the gelatin mixture, salt, cayenne, and just enough oil to keep food from sticking to the pan.
  3. As soon as the shrimp is opaque, remove from heat.
  4. Once shrimp is cooled enough to handle, cut shrimp into ¼ inch pieces.
  5. Stir in zoodles and parsley

  6. Spread scampi on dehydrator trays and dehydrate 165℉ or the highest setting on your dehydrator, for 12-16 hours, until the food is completely dehydrated.

  7. Once all the food is completely dried, let cool to room temperature.
  8. Add all ingredients to mylar bag.

  9. Add a desiccant packet.
  10. Try to get all the air out you can and seal bag with iron or hair straightener.

  1. When you are ready to eat, add 1 ½ -2 cups of boiling water and let rehydrate for 20 minutes.
  2. Stir in the butter if you have not already added butter powder and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

  • When the shrimp rehydrates it is a little chewy. I like this texture because no one likes eating mush, but if it bothers you, you can always cut the shrimp in tiny pieces and make sure you give it plenty of time to rehydrate.
  • If using butter powder, you can add the powder directly to the mylar bags before you seal them at home.
