  • Cut off the ends of the zucchini and use a spiralizer on the thinnest setting to create the zoodles.

  • Heat remaining olive oil and butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Saute shallot for 3 minutes; add remaining garlic and cook for an additional 30 seconds. Add shrimp and cook until bright pink on the outside and meat is opaque, about 2 minutes per side. Add lemon juice, wine, lemon zest, and salt. Cook and stir for 1 minute.

  • Remove the skillet from heat and add zucchini; stir for 2 to 3 minutes. The residual heat will cook the zucchini.

  • Divide onto 2 plates, top with fresh parsley, and serve.

Cook's Note:

The two medium zucchini together should weigh about 1 pound.

I've made this a number of times. Always a favorite. If you can[t get zucchini, use Ronzoni's Supergreens rotini noodles. Read More

I had a bag of large frozen shrimp in the freezer and it was a great way to use them. The recipe was very different and interesting certainly a break from the routine. Made a baked potato on the side and my husband loved it. Read More
