Shrimp Scampi with Spaghetti Squash topped with chlorella pesto sauce

Ingredients:

Chlorella Pesto Sauce
3 cups Fresh Basil Leaves
1 cup Pine Nuts
4 cloves Garlic, peeled
1/4 cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
(3g/1tsp) Sun Chlorella
1/4 cup Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper to taste

10 large raw shrimp, peeled and deveined
3 Garlic Cloves, Minced
½ Tbsp Ground Coriander
½ Tbsp Ground Cumin
½ Tbsp Cayenne Pepper
½ Cup White Wine
Salt to taste

1 Cooked Spaghetti Squash
2 Tbsp Olive Oil

Directions:

1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees F.
2. Slice your spaghetti squash in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds. For easy cutting, you can microwave your squash for 5 minutes to soften it up.
3. Rub the cut side of the squash with 1/2 tsp olive oil and place on a baking sheet. Roast face-down for about 40 minutes, or until tender and easily pierced with a fork. Once squash is roasted, allow to cool slightly until easily handled.
4. Heat a stainless steel skillet to medium-high heat with 1 tsp of oil and sauté your shrimp until cooked on both sides.
5. Combine the basil, garlic, pine nuts, parmesan cheese, and Sun Chlorella in a food processor and pulse until coarsely chopped. Add the oil and process until fully incorporated and smooth. Season with salt and pepper.
6. Use a fork to separate and fluff the strands of spaghetti squash and remove strands. While the squash is still warm, toss together with chlorella pesto sauce.
7. Stuff the tasty strands back into your squash boat and top with the sauté shrimp.

Enjoy!
