Once again Google saves the day! The decision on what to make for dinner? What's in the fridge? Shrimp.
So with a bag of raw shrimp, one zucchini, one lemon, three tablespoons of minced garlic, leftover vegetable broth, salt/pepper, red pepper flakes and butter I created this! And man was it good.
My inspiration came from EZPZmeals on you tube. Random find. No I'm not endorsing her. I'm just sharing what my idea came from. If you can stand her voice, give it a watch. Other wise follow my directions below as this dish is super easy to make.
1-1 1/2 lbs raw shrimp, any size but I used Medium which became small in the dish
1 lemon, medium in size
1 large zucchini, cut into noodles. (you probably could use two if you like more zoodles)
3 tablespoons of minced garlic (I used the stuff in the jar but fresh would have been better flavor)
2 -3 tablespoons of butter. I guessed how much I used because it was all I had left.
red pepper flakes to your liking but for sure put at least a dash or two in. More if you like it hot.
A few dashes of Italian seasoning (since I didn't have any fresh herbs)
I didn't have the fresh herbs and Parmasean Cheese but I wish I did. It would have set the dish off perfectly with flavor. And of course who wouldn't love some crusty bread to sop up the juice! (I used a GF bagel I had, LOL)
I heated up a saute pan and started melting the butter. Added the Garlic, red pepper flakes and italian seasoning right away. About a minute until the butter is melted almost, add the shrimp and let it start to cook.
Almost immediately I zested the lemon over the pan. Then I squeezed all the juice of the lemon and stirred. The shrimp started turning pink so I adjusted the heat slightly.
Next I added the vegetable broth. You could use seafood or chicken even. But Veggie is what I had. Only needed about 1/4 cup. I think I used too much, which was more like 1/2 cup.
By this time a few minutes had passed and the shrimp was almost done so I added the Zoodles, mixed well and covered it to steam the noodles.
A few minutes later I added a bit of salt and pepper, opened a bottle of wine and we enjoyed dinner!! Super easy. Took about 20 minutes not counting the time to make the zoodles, which I did with a Julianne peeler from pampered chef.
LOOK HOW FANCY!!
