  • 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.


  1. Do not overcook the shrimp. Cooking seafood for long results in a hard and chewy texture.
  2. You can cook the zucchini noodles according to your preference. I prefer mine soft and fully cooked.
  3. Also, add salt only toward the end of cooking the zucchini. Else, it will make the zucchini noodles soggy.
