  • Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add olive oil and garlic, and cook until the garlic is fragrant, about 1 minute. Add zucchini and toss to coat with the butter-garlic sauce. Saute until zucchini noodles are slightly softened or have reached desired tenderness, 3 to 5 minutes.

  • Stir in lemon juice, lemon-pepper, red pepper flakes, and salt, and remove from the heat. Garnish with a sprinkle of parsley and lemon zest, and serve.
