Baked Shrimp Parmesan over Zucchini Noodles – an easy, light and delicious shrimp dish made in under 30 minutes!

I love shrimp parmesan and make it often at home because it’s so much healthier to make it yourself. Rather than frying the shrimp like you’d get from a restaurant, I bake them in the oven until golden.

I’ve been using Tuttorosso tomatoes for years – if you’ve been following me from the beginning, you probably already know that they’re my crushed tomato of choice.

Shrimp Zoodles Parmesan for Two – an easy, healthy meal in under 30 minutes!

This recipe is simple, you’ll want to have everything prepped and ready before you start making this, because it comes together fast.  Have your zucchini cut and ready before you start, I prefer a thicker zucchini noodle so I used the thicker noodle blade of my Paderno Spiralizer to cut my zoodles. Enjoy!

Baked Shrimp Parmesan over Zucchini Noodles – an easy, light and delicious shrimp dish made in under 30 minutes!


For the Shrimp:

  • 8 oz peeled and deveined jumbo shrimp
  • fresh black pepper, to taste
  • 1 large egg, beaten*
  • 3 tbsp whole wheat Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 1 tbsp panko crumbs
  • 1 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
  • olive oil cooking spray

For the Zoodles:

  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed with the side of a knife
  • 1 1/4 cups crushed tomatoes, I always use Tuttorosso
  • kosher salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 medium zucchini, 14 oz total, spiralized with the thicker blade, and cut into 6-inch lengths
  • 1 oz shredded mozzarella cheese, I love Polly-O


  • Preheat oven to 450°F. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  • Put the beaten egg in one bowl, and the breadcrumbs, panko and parmesan cheese a second bowl.
  • Wash and dry the shrimp. Season lightly black pepper, then put a few at a time in the bowl with the egg to coat. Then into the breadcrumb mixture to coat, then on a baking sheet.
  • Spray the top of the shrimp generously with oil then bake in the middle rack for about 6-7 minutes.
  • Turn shrimp over then cook another 3 minutes or until cooked though.
  • In a large oven safe skillet heat the oil over medium heat.
  • Add the garlic and cook until browned, about 2 minutes. Add the crushed tomatoes, salt and pepper and simmer on low 5 to 6 minutes.
  • When the shrimp is done, add the zucchini noodles and cook 1 1/2 to 2 minutes tops, stirring to combine with sauce.
  • Place the cooked shrimp over the zoodles, top with cheese and place under the broiler 1 minute until the cheese melts.

  1. Can the shrimp be made in the air fryer?  If so, how long and what temp?

  2. An excellent dish. We prepared this dish accordingly and it did not disappoint! Flavorful and delicious, there wasn’t any leftover. The baked breaded shrimp were perfect and a nice change from frying. However, we did add additional dry Italian seasoning to taste to the breadcrumb mixture. A definate seafood dish we’ll make again.

  3. Looks delicious! Is there a way to do this with precooked shrimp?

  4. What kind of spiralizer do you recommend for the zoodles?

  5. My husband is allergic to shrimp. Is there something else I could use to substitute? 

  6. This was amazing!!! So tasty and satisfying!! Sucha great low fat  substitute for pasta! I will make this over and over!

  7. I made this tonight for the first time-was delicious- I had zoodles and my husband had thin spaghetti (he doesn’t eat zucchini) – where it was the the two of us I added a little hot pepper 

  8. First zoodle recipe and it was awesome. Definitely filling and felt like a cheat meal! My husband loved it as well. Not to mention you can’t beat those 4 SP! Will make again!

  9. I have made this two times; it is my one of my husband’s favorite Friday Lent meals!!! He even loves the Zoodles – doesn’t miss the pasta at all – and neither do I for that matter. I used Pepperoncino flavored olive oil instead of regular to give it a little kick and I didn’t have any whole wheat bread crumbs so I used regular Italian bread crumbs and adjusted my points accordingly (adds 1 point). Thank you for all of your amazing recipes; I’ve bought your cook books for both myself and your daughter!!

  10. This was my first zoodle recipe and I am already planning to make it again for guests!

  11. This is an amazingly delicious and filling meal! I am new to healthy eating and was reluctant to use zoodles. If you didn’t know it was a skinny taste recipe you wouldn’t guess it was a healthy or light recipe! I made this for my wife last week and it was such a hit I made it again (by request!) tonight. Thanks for this! It’s my new favorite thing to cook! 

  12. Are you using raw or cooked shrimp?

  13. Love recipes with zoodles! This was a great one. 

  14. Delicious!! I used the thicker zoodles but prefer the thinner.  

  15. I made this tonight and love it!! I did the thicker zoodles but I prefer them thinner.  Good dinner though!!!

  16. If you don’t have bread crumbs, is it okay to use just the panko?

  18. I saw this yesterday & thought, well, low carb, shrimp, this MUST be healthy. I went out & got the ingredients today and OMG! IT was unbelievable. I made it with vegan mozzarella & just adjusted the sauce to my liking (a little sugar..ugh!) I will definitely be making again. so so so great! 

  19. Saw your facebook post today and this looked too good so I made it for dinner. It was quick and delicious (as always)!! Thanks Gina!

  20. My husband gave this a 10! I will be making this again. Thank you!!

  22. Any suggestions for doing the shrimp for us gluten free folks? 

  23. Made this tonight. Huge hit. My husband and I loved it. 

  24. I’m so excited for this site (thank you!!) – and I love zoodles! I’ve had the watery issue others mentioned but I”m going to try the pre cooking.

    On that note – do you think you could spiralize the night before and keep the zoodles in the fridge?

  25. I made this yesterday for the family and they LOVED it. Matter of fact they loved it so much, I didn’t get any not even a taste.

  27. This was my first recipe with my new spiralizer. It was AWESOME!!!!! We will definitely have again.

  28. Absolutely delicious! My fiancé today gave it 4 stars out of 4! We can’t wait to make it again and again!

  29. Delicious recipe. I doubled for 4 people and used 16 oz peeled and deveined shimp and needed 2 whole eggs and needed to double the breadcrumb mixture to coat them all (I did not have jumbo, so I used large which could have attributed to some of that).

    I used the whole can of crushed tomatoes (since there would have been like 1/2 cup left), I doubled the garlic and added a smidge of crushed red pepper flakes….my sauce simmered closer to 15 minutes while I prepared the zoodles.

    I found 3 large zucchini to be plenty of zoodles (I had bought 4).

    My guests are two 24 year old girls who eat very healthy and they really enjoyed this dish!

  30. Finally got around to trying this one, and it was a hit! Now I'm going to hunt down some of your other breaded shrimp recipes!

  31. A favorite recipe! These were easy and fun to make. Spiralized noodles are a favorite too. Thank you, Frances

  32. I made this dish w/a few added favs, and it was fantastic! Added pesto to the egg wash for the shrimp, and sautéed spinach to sauce and zucchini noodles or "zoodles" – it was delicious! Thank you for sharing this healthy and tasty recipe 🙂

  33. I put the nutrition information in my WW calculator & it's showing that it's 9 Smart Points, not 7.

  34. Hey Gina! I love love love your zoodle recipes. I look for them specifically on your site because I know that they'll taste great and be healthy. Thank you for all your work on these!

  35. I made this tonight. It was absolutely delicious !, My husband loved it too !,

  36. We don't have a spiralizer, we just use a lemon zester and make noddles that way. Cannot wait to try out this gem 🙂

  37. I couldn't find whole wheat bread crumbs….if I use regular Italian bread crumbs will that change the point value?

  38. This isn't recipe related but how do you like your marble countertops? Have you had lots of etching or scratches? They are beautiful but I hear so many different opinions about them!

  39. Just made this last night and it was soooo good! My fiance "accidentally" topped it with both the mozzarella and parmesan when it went in the oven. It was definitely a happy accident!

  40. How does the zucchini taste in place of pasta? I tried using spaghetti squash once because everyone said it tastes just like regular spaghetti once you put the sauce on it. It didn't taste anything like spaghetti though. (not a bad thing, just not what I was going for). I might be able to convince my husband to buy a spiralizer but only if I'm sure I'll actually eat the foods. 🙂

    • If you're looking for the same taste and texture of pasta, it's not going to match what you're expecting, BUT, I've tried the spaghetti squash in place of pasta as well and thought it was just awful.
      The Zoodles are actually much more similar I find. My husband was really doubtful (even though he loves his veggies and eats way more of them than I do!). I bought a spiralizer anyways and 'surprised' him with Gina's skinny low mein – that dish alone sold him!
      Personally I'm not a fan of raw zucchini, but the dishes where you cook it for a minute or 2 really softens it up and I find its just as filling and satisfying/comforting as pasta, and I found we weren't really missing the pasta at all.

  41. Omg, this dish was amazing. Devoured it last night and reheated again for lunch today. Perfection. Felt like I was cheating with this satisfying and comforting meal. Thanks, Gina, for yet another great recipe!

  42. I made this for dinner the other night. My husband and I both loved it! Excellent recipe!

  43. Made this last night and it was so yummy!!!!!!! The guys even liked it!

  44. Please pardon my stupid question-the only shrimp I have is Trader Joe's frozen medium sized cooked shrimp, which I will thaw first. How long should I bake the shrimp in the oven if it is already pre-cooked? Thank you.

  45. Looks great, we'll have to try it! Loving my spiralizer, but other than making noodles out of zucchini I'm totally lost at what else I can do with it.

    To the person who posted above about how to make 'non-watery' zoodles, a trick I picked up from another site said to cook your zoodles first (only for 1-2 minutes), and let them rest in a dish like you would if you were cooking meat…..that way some of the water is released. Pour out the water, then add them back once the dish has come together. This adds an extra step, but it's worked great whenever we've done it, and keeps the sauce from getting too watery,

  46. Can this be doubled, or would I need to make two separate batches?

  47. Just made this for dinner, and it was out of this world delicious. Thank you for yet another recipe we can add to our rotation while staying on track with WW!

  48. I made this last night and it was terrific. The shrimp were perfect. I'm going to try making coconut shrimp using your baking method. Your recipes never disappoint – Thanks !

    • She has a baked coconut shrimp recipe with an amazing dipping sauce that we've made many times and absolutely love! 🙂

  49. Love your zoodle recipes, and this one really looks delicious! Thanks for sharing.

  50. Love your recipes! I think this one looks amazing but when I usually make them I reheat it for lunch all week because I am the only one in my house who will eat it. Does anyone know if the zoodles would hold up to being reheated throughout the week??? Thanks!

  51. Can I use frozen shrimp?

  52. Perfect – in a few months I might be making this every night!

  53. Thank you for sharing this! I am trying this in the very near future! I just had my first taste of zoodles last night and I am on the hunt for recipes! This one looks AMAZING! I can hardly wait to try it!

  54. Oh my gosh, SERIOUSLY???? I just cannot believe that some of you are griping because of too many zoodle or spiralized food recipes. Do you realize all of the hard work that goes into creating these recipes and that we can access them free of charge??? I am stunned that anyone would even consider griping about this. I just want to say, THANK YOU, GINA, for all of your hard work and for sharing these amazing recipes with us! Most of us do really appreciate it!


    • Yes! THANK YOU, GINA!! We love you!!!

    • Thank you for this!!!! What's with people? Also, is it that hard to use your imagination for a moment and just substitute one of Gina's many pasta recipes, vegetable recipes, etc.? She has over a thousand recipes, you can mix and match people! Or…you know, just boil some pasta…not rocket science.

    • AMEN!!  I was thinking the same thing.  Love her site and her recipes.  <3 <3

  55. Thanks for another delicious zoodle recipe…

  56. This looks amazing! Could you use Eggbeaters instead of the large egg? What would the adjusted WW Pts.+ be if any?

  57. Made this last night – it was SOOO good (as all of your recipes are) but this one got extra points and is officially in our rotation….which consists of nothing but your recipes haha =)

  58. I'll be making this tomorrow night for dinner but will make my boyfriend pasta instead of the veggies! Can't wait to try this!!

  59. This looks great. I'm always looking for new ways to use my new gadget (I love gadgets!!!). I LOVE the idea of a progressive virtual dinner party! I'll be staying tuned …

  60. Please post more spiralizer recipes!! My husbad and I can't get enough of them!

  61. Gina, this was GREAT! I made it last night. All we had were precooked salad shrimp in the freezer, so it took quite a while to bread them, but it was worth it! Extra bites of shrimp actually made it that much better. My boyfriend gave it 8 stars out of 5. Thank you!!

  62. Tried it last night! It was awesome! PS….Zoodles rock!!! Keep em coming!

  63. This looks and sounds absolutely amazing, yum!

  64. Great recipe – cant wait to try it

  65. Zoodles is the best word.

  66. Yipee!…another spiralizer recipe! I can't get enough 🙂

  67. I'm LOVING the spiralizer recipes too, Gina! Keep 'em comin'! 🙂

  68. Love seeing new recipes and ideas for the spiralizer, keep them coming! 🙂

  69. Ok, I need to admit it openly- I thought these 'zoodles' thing were not going to hang on for more than 2 seconds. They're still here and now I need to try them! 🙂

  70. I love your recipes and have recommended this site to all of my friends. Thank you for sharing with us…even with those who visit the site and don't seem to understand that these recipes are not written in stone. You can think outside of the box to suit your own tastes 🙂

  71. Such a great dish. I have to make it or my husband, he loves shrimps

  72. Why must I see these delicious recipes when I'm starving & there's nothing in my fridge!?

  73. Yay, another zoodle dish! I love this!

  74. This looks amazing!!!

  75. Thank you for posting this recipe! I bought a spiralizer last week and have already made the Kung Pao Zoodles twice in one week along with the shrimp scampi, they were so tasty! My husband put in a request for a pasta version of the zoodles so I will definitely be making this recipe soon!! Thanks!

  76. What spiralizer do you use?

  77. I have loved your recipes for years, but I have no intention of buying a spiralizer. I'm hoping for summer you'll change it up a bit.

  78. Zoodles, yum! Baked, not deep fried shrimp, yum! Friday night's dinner, Yum, Yum!

  79. I love your recipes, Gina, but man I am getting tired of the spiralizer in every other recipe lately! I hope you'll start mixing things up a bit more.

    • I have over 1200 recipes on the blog so just use another from the archives.

    • You can always use pasta instead of the zoodles if you wish too. Don't have to follow every recipe EXACTLY as written!

    • I agree with Katie. I love every single recipe on this site..& I'm not hating on the zoodles… But lately it seems like a lot of the posts are too similar

    • Thanks for your response, Gina! I am a frequent visitor to your archives and actually find the volume of recipes available to be overwhelming (in a good way)! It is exciting to open up your page and see a new recipe that looks awesome though, and that's not really happening for me with all the spiralizer recipes. Of course, that is just me and I'm sure many others love all the options. Just wanted to share my thoughts and suggestion. Thanks again!

    • I absolutely LOVE your blog AND my spiralizer! Thanks for the great recipes Gina, please keep them coming! 🙂 -Ashley

    • I promise to keep a variety to make everyone happy! 🙂

    • I don't want to see the spiralizer recipes go away just because a few people are tired of them, because they make a great alternative for pasta dishes, and they are great ideas for vegetarian dishes. Maybe instead, whenever you have a recipe like that, you can specify "either/or" to make everyone happy 🙂

    • True…not a bad idea

    • Spiralizer recipes have changed my life! If I had a vote, I'd say keep 'em coming!!

    • I just bought a spiralizer and I am elated every time you post a new recipe using it!! Please keep them coming!!

    • Gina- can you recommend a sprializer that you like? I'm new to the blog so sorry if you've mentioned it before.

  80. I've been looking for a good zoodle recipe and I love how this one has crusted shrimp! YUM. Do you have any tips on making non-watery zoodles? Mine always come out a little runny. Thanks for sharing! xo Lisa

  81. Yum! This looks great! I love zoodles and shrimp, so this is a must make!

  82. definitely going to make this tonight! looks so good!

  83. I love shrimp and this does look really good. I must try this recipe.
