Ingredients

  • 2 medium zucchinis
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 pound large shrimp, shelled and deveined
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

Instructions

  • Spiralize the zucchini using a spiralizer and set aside. Alternatively, you can use a julienne peeler to cut the zucchini into noodles.
  • Heat olive oil and butter in a large nonstick frying pan over medium heat.
  • Add garlic and chili flakes. Cook for 1 minute until fragrant.
  • Add shrimp and a pinch of salt. Cook for 2-3 minutes until shrimp is pink and opaque.
  • Turn off heat. Stir in the lemon juice. Add zucchini noodles and toss to combine.

Notes

  1. Be careful not to overcook your zoodles, because they can get a bit mushy. Remember to turn off the heat before adding the zoodles to the pan and then just toss with tongs to combine.
  2. I recommend using wild-caught, sustainably-harvested shrimp from Vital Choice (my favorite online seafood retailer) for this recipe.
