Garlic Chili Shrimp with Pesto Zoodles

 Ingredients:

  • 2 large zucchini, spiralized
  • 1 large bag frozen shrimp, defrosted (I used wild caught)
  • 3 tbsp pesto
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 tsp chili flakes (or more if you like it hot)
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley, roughly chopped
  • Black pepper
  • Olive oil, for sautéing

Instructions:

  1. Spiralize zucchini and set aside.
  2. Prepare pesto and set aside (make your own or use store bought).
  3. Defrost shrimp and remove shells.
  4. Heat a cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add olive oil. Once hot, add in shrimp, garlic, chili flake parsley and black pepper.
  5. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side until cooked through and nicely pink. Remove from the skillet and place in a bowl.
  6. To the same skillet, add in zucchini noodles and pesto. Cook for roughly 5-7 minutes until desired texture is reached.
  7. Add noodles to a bowl and top with shrimp and fresh parsley.
  8. Eat and enjoy!
