A Quick and Easy Meal.
My husband travels for work a lot and has to eat out quite often, so when he’s home I always want to cook something for him to enjoy and not spend the whole day in the kitchen doing so. He loves shrimp in garlic sauce over pasta, but I find it to be kinda heavy at times, so I came up with this recipe to try to lighten the dish up a bit.
Here is what you will need:
- 1 lb of cleaned shrimp
- 2 – 3 zucchini’s (depending on size)
- ¼ cup olive oil
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 1 lemon
- 6 – 8 garlic cloves – minced (also depending on size)
- 1 tablespoon garlic powder
- salt & pepper
Here is what you need to do :
Saute your zucchini noodles in half of your olive oil with a sprinkle of salt & pepper for a few minutes until slightly cooked. Remove from pan and set aside. To make my zucchini into noodles I use a Veggetti which is so inexpensive and easy to use. I bought this on amazon.com and just love it.
Next, melt the butter in the other half of olive oil and toss in the minced garlic. Cook for a minute and then toss in your shrimp. Squeeze in the juice of the lemon and sprinkle in the garlic powder. Give everything a good mix and cook for a few minutes until shrimp are cooked.
Toss in your zucchini noodles and season with salt & pepper to your taste.
Serve it up with a nice warm loaf of crunchy bread and…
