Even though I do tend to post all kinds of food recipes around here, my favorites are, by far, the healthy ones.
Like this “Lemon Garlic Shrimp Zoodles” recipe.
Healthy doesn’t have to be blah.
This dish surely isn’t! It’s loaded with yummy flavor and it’s so easy too.
That’s another thing you’ll find here. Easy recipes.
And quick too!
Just like I like em. ;)
Who has time to spend all day in the kitchen?
I sure don’t!
So, let’s talk zoodles.
Have you made them before?
They are just zucchini cut into swirls of pasta shaped goodness.
And you use a spiralizer like you see below.
I always make a bit more than I think I’ll need by the looks of them raw.
They cook down a bit so you need to keep that in mind.
However, you don’t want to cook them all the way “done” either.
They are much better with a little firmness to them.
Start out by sauteing them with a little olive oil or butter.
This typically takes about 5-7 minutes but keep in mind what I said above.
Test them as you’re cooking them so they don’t get overdone. (soft and mushy)
Set them aside.
I like to place them on paper towels to remove all the excess moisture.
Otherwise your sauce can end up runny.
Next add your fresh shrimp to the pan with a bit of butter until done.
Add 2 tablespoons of butter, 2 tablespoons of olive oil and 1-2 large cloves of garlic, minced or pressed to the pan.
(you can adjust these amounts, if you like)
Saute for 2-3 minutes on medium.
Add the zoodles and shrimp to the pan with the garlic and butter.
Squeeze the juice of one lemon over top (be careful of seeds).
Toss and heat for 1-2 minutes.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
And that’s it.
Delicious, healthy and very tasty meal that was quick and easy to throw together.
Hope you enjoy it!
