Shrimp Scampi with Zucchini Noodles

Shrimp Scampi with Zucchini Noodles

I have to admit, I’m super late to the zucchini noodle (or zoodle) party.  Well, let me explain.  I’ve had a spiralizer for about over a year now.  I blame peer pressure.  All my friends were buying them, so of course I couldn’t be the only non-spiralizing individual in the bunch.  I used it once, overcooked the zucchini noodles, and was over the whole trend just like that.  I tucked away my spiralizer, never to be seen again.  Until now.

After researching how to make the best zucchini noodles (i.e. barely cook them), I decided to try again.  Now I’m sold!  Shrimp scampi lends a garlicky, lemony punch to these zoodles, and the slight crunch of the zucchini noodles adds a nice contrast to the dish.  Make this for date night, or any night, and I think you’ll be sold on the zoodle trend.
