1poundmedium shrimppeeled and deveined
½teaspoonred pepper flakesor more, to taste
Juice of 1 lemon
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepperto taste
2cups2 medium-sized zucchini, spiralized
2tablespoonsfreshly grated Parmesan
2tablespoonschopped fresh parsley leaves
Use a spiral cutter to cut 4 meduim zuccinni into zoodles and set them aside.
Melt butter in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add shrimp, garlic and red pepper flakes. Cook, stirring occasionally, until pink, about 2-3 minutes.
Stir in chicken stock and lemon juice; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Bring to a simmer; stir in zucchini noodles until well combined, about 1-2 minutes.
Serve immediately, garnished with Parmesan and parsley, if desired.
The following is just a suggestion for advanced chefs. I don't do this.Salt and mix the zucchini with salt and let sit to get the water out of the zucchini. This will make them more noodley. Before you put these in the mixture with the shrimp and things you will need to rinse them with cold water (NOT WARM OR HOT). If you rinse with warm water it will open the pores and the salt will get in there and and your noodles will be too salty.
