  • Preheat the oven to 400° F. Carefully poke small holes around the spaghetti squash with a sharp knife and microwave for 5 minutes. Slice the spaghetti squash in half, lengthwise, season with salt and pepper, and place it flesh side down on a rimmed baking sheet flesh with 1/4 cup of water. Roast for 45-60 minutes or until the squash strands are easy to pull apart with a fork. When the squash is ready, pull at the strands with a fork.
  • About 10 minutes before the squash is finished, heat a pan over medium-high heat with 1/2 cup of BBQ Sauce on med-high heat. Add shrimp and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side.
  • To serve, divide the shrimp between each spaghetti squash boat and top with smashed avocado, mango salsa, pickled onions, and cilantro.


  • If you don't want to make your own Whole30 BBQ sauce, this one is great.
