Excellent very much like a cioppino. Shrimp needs so little time to cook to stay tender I added the zucchini first and shrimp just last 5 min. All that butter at the end is deliciousness but can be halved. Drain your diced tomatoes to reduce the excess liquid. Mangia! Read More

It was pretty good and I like salt but HOLY COW that s salty! I did some math afterwards...1 serving size of Old Bay seasoning is 1/4 teaspoon...so the 3 Tablespoons the recipe calls for comes out to 36 servings! (totaling 5760g of sodium!) And then to add more salt after that yowza dude! I d make the recipe again but cut the old bay/salt wayway down. Way way way down. I may still be thirsty by then too. Read More

This dish had a lot of flavour. I made it exactly as the recipe stated. It tasted like it came out of a fine Italian restaurant. I was nervous to make it as I didn't know how the zoodles would go over but truly they tasted just like pasta and amazed everyone at the table. Definitely a 5-star dish! Thank you. Read More

My husband and I really liked this dish. It was good and full of flavor. I did drain my zoodles for a while in a colander before cooking them. It went together quickly and easily. I was afraid the lemon would be overpowering but it was perfect. I will make this again. Read More

I followed the recipe BUT: even with draining and pressing the zucchini it was extremely watery more like soup. I drained off over 4 cups of liquid and there was still plenty left. "4 zucchini" is too vague the ones I used were about 8 inches and it wasn't nearly enough zucchini for the amount of shrimp. The taste wasn't bad but for me I would use less of the spice mix next time. Read More
