Servings 4


  • 2 small to medium spaghetti squash halved lengthwise and seeded
  • 2 tablespoons butter grass-fed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 12 ounces large shrimp peeled and deveined (about 20 shrimp)
  • sea salt for seasoning
  • black pepper for seasoning
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon Red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley chopped


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with foil and place
 the squash halves cut-side down and pierce them with a fork several times each. Bake the squash until tender, about 45 minutes. 

  • While the squash is cooking, heat the butter and oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat and sauté the shrimp with a little salt and pepper for 2 minutes. Add the garlic and sauté 2 minutes until the shrimp is cooked through. Transfer the shrimp to a plate and set aside.
  • Place the skillet back on the heat and add the lemon juice, lemon zest, Dijon mustard, and red pepper flakes and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer 5 minutes. Set aside.
  • Use a fork to separate the squash strands into a colander and place it in the sink. Use paper towels to gently press the excess liquid out of the squash.
  • Whisk the yogurt into the sauce until creamy and smooth then stir in the chopped parsley. Add the spaghetti squash and shrimp, toss to combine, and serve!
