Ingredients:
  • 2 Tablespoons of Olive Oil
  • 1/2 lbs of Shrimp, peels and deveined
  • 1 Tablespoon Minced Garlic (I added about 1/2 tablespoon extra)
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Crushed Red Pepper Flakes (to taste)
  • 1/4 Cup Dry White Wine
  • 2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
  • 4-6 Zucchini, cut into noodles
  • Garnish with Parsley or Basil
Directions:

Cut Zucchini into noodles. {We used our Sharper Image Mandolin} Mince Garlic. {We use the Chef’n Garlic Roller– by far my FAVORITE kitchen gadget!}

Place a large saute pan over medium-low heat. Add olive oil and heat. Add the minced garlic and crushed red pepper flakes stir constantly until garlic browns.

Add shrimp. Cook until pink, about 3 minutes on each side. Season with Salt and Pepper. Remove with a slotted spoon. Leave all liquid in the pan.

Increase the heat to Medium. Add White Wine and Lemon Juice. Cook together about 2 minutes. Add Zucchini. Stir occasionally about 3-4 minutes, until desired softness. Return Shrimp to pan and combine. Garnish and serve.
