Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time12 mins
- 20 large shrimps peeled and deveined
- 4 medium zucchini
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 3-4 garlic cloves finely minced
- ¼ tsp red chili flakes
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 2 tbsp finely chopped fresh parsley
- salt and pepper
Heat oil in a large skillet on medium heat.
Add garlic, some chili flakes and cook for 40-60 sec.
Then add shrimp, lemon juice and season with salt and pepper. Cook them for 3 min on both sides (total 6 min). Once done take them out.
Now in the same skillet, in leftover oil and garlic, add zucchini noodles. Cook them on high heat for 3-4 min.
Add salt and pepper; mix well. Add back the cooked shrimp or serve separately.
- Do not overcook the shrimp. Cooking seafood for long results in a hard and chewy texture.
- You can cook the zucchini noodles according to your preference. I prefer mine soft and fully cooked.
- Also, add salt only toward the end of cooking the zucchini. Else, it will make the zucchini noodles soggy.
