Ingredients

  • 2 Chayote Squash Spiralized with thin spaghetti blade, noodles trimmed
  • 9 oz Pork Chorizo
  • 2 cloves Garlic minced
  • 1/4 cup Chicken Broth
  • 1 lb Raw jumbo Shrimp peeled and de-veined
  • 1/4 tsp Salt

Instructions

  • Lay out the spiralized chayote noodles on a layer of paper towel and sprinkle with salt.  Let drain on the towels while you make the sauce.
  • Saute the chorizo in a skillet until it resembles cooked hamburger meat.  Remove from the pan with a slotted spoon and set aside.  
  • Add the shrimp to the pan and cook on each side until pink and no longer translucent, about 5 minutes.  Remove from the pan.  Add the Chicken broth and scrape the browned bits from the bottom of the pan.  
  • Add the chayote noodles to the pan and sauté for 5 minutes.  The noodles will remain crunchy.
  • To serve, place 1/4 of the chayote noodles on a plate and top with 1/4 of the chorizo and shrimp.
