Easy Shrimp & Scallops w/ Spaghetti Squash (Gluten-Free, Grain-Free)

This is one flavorful dish, so good! Daddy Chef said it tasted like it came from a fancy restaurant. So rich and garlicky!

We based ours on this RECIPE, but we made a few changes to make it easier to prepare, we're not ones to keep taking items out of pans. :-)

We cooked the garlic but then just added everything else to the pan at once, including more broth than they recommend. We also added some cilantro. And we let it simmer for longer, until the liquid reduced into a nice sauce.

Then we poured it over buttered & salted spaghetti squash "noodles". (You could use oil in place of butter, if needed.) We also added a few slices of lemon to the top, it's so much better if you squeeze lemon juice over the top before devouring.

And for dessert we made cookies! Snickerdoodles!
We took Elana's Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe but left out the chocolate chips and instead rolled them in cinnamon and coconut sugar.


Junior Chefs' Opinions!
Sister Chef: "Loved them both! Spicy and Sweet! 10 stars!"
Brother Chef: "The shrimp was hot but good! The cookies were awesome! 10 stars!"
Little Chef: "Yum and Yuck to both!"(He took a bite of the shrimp and said he liked it. But halfway through said he didn't like it anymore. Same with the cookies. lol)
