Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 pound shrimp, fresh or thawed precooked and deveined with tails removed
  • 2 zucchinis, julienned or spiralized
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 tablespoon dried basil
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • Coarse black pepper for garnishing

Instructions

  1. In a large sauté pan, combine shrimp, olive oil, garlic, parsley, oregano, basil, and sea salt and sauté for about 10-15 minutes, or until shrimp have cooked through and absorbed some of the olive oil mixture (they won’t absorb all of the oil, and that’s okay).
  2. While the shrimp is sautéing, julienne or spiralize the zucchinis and pat dry with napkins or paper towels, or place them in a colander and sprinkle with a pinch of sea salt to drain the excess water from the veggie noodles.
  3. Once the shrimp are cooked, stir in the zucchini noodles and sauté for another 5-10 minutes or until desired noodle consistency is reached. As a point of reference, the longer the zucchini noodles cook, the softer they will become.
  4. Sprinkle with black pepper, serve, and enjoy!
  5. For best results, consume within 24 hours. This recipe can be refrigerated and enjoyed cold, too.
