  • Yield: 2 servings
  • Prep: 10 mins
  • Cook: 15 mins

Ingredients

1 14 ounce package frozen shrimp in creamy garlic sauce (like SeaPak® Lighthouse Selections Creamy Garlic Shrimp)
3medium zucchini
Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 lemon, cut into quarters

Instructions

  1. Bring a medium pot of salted water to boil.
  2. While water is heating. Slice the zucchini into “noodles” by first cutting the tops and ends off each zucchini. Then, cut them lengthwise into ¼-inch planks. Finally, cut the planks again into ¼-inch strips to make the “noodles.” (Or use a spiralizer, if you have one on-hand!)
  3. Add zucchini noodles to the boiling water and cook just until al dente, about 2-3 minutes.
  4. Drain in colander, lightly salt and pepper and set aside.
  5. Place the same pot back over medium-high heat and follow package directions for cooking the shrimp.
  6. To serve, divide zucchini noodles between 2 bowls, top each with half of the shrimp and its sauce. Finish with a squeeze of fresh lemon.
