Lori’s Shrimp and Zucchini Extravaganza

For the record, I added the “Extravaganza” part for effect.  Hopefully it got you excited to make this delicious and healthy dish.

Ingredients Needed:

  • 6 organic zucchini
  • 1 tablespoon of Olive Oil
  • Handful of pine nuts
  • 7 oz. container of pesto
  • Bag of frozen uncooked wild caught shrimp (remove shell and devein)
  • Teaspoon of garlic
  • 1/2 cup of white wine (provided you haven’t consumed all the wine during Happy Hour)

Peel outer layer of skin off zucchini with a cucumber peeler then use the peeler to peel zucchini down to seeds… think fettuccini noodles.

Sauté zucchini noodles in a tablespoon of olive oil until soft and then add 1/2 container of pesto and mix well.

In a separate pan sauté shrimp in garlic and white wine – about 3 minutes each side.

Toast your pine nuts in a toaster oven or a small pan – watch them carefully they toast quickly – I will do this before I start cooking the meal.

Plate pesto zucchini noodles, top with shrimp and sprinkle with pine nuts.
