Garlic Lemon Shrimp over Zucchini Noodles

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.

    That looks delicious! It’s funny because I LOVE zucchini – its my go to vegetable. My daughter and her fiance are living with me while they finish school, and Jacob told me he’s eaten more zucchini in the last year than he has in the last 15 years! 😀
