Shrimp on a bed of Zucchini Noodles

I’ve been wanting to try to make zucchini noodles for a while now but refused to purchase another kitchen gadget; especially a spiralizer.

Then I found this video.

With the noodles on a base of mushrooms, garlic and cashews, it cried out for shrimp.  So much better than using pasta.

Zucchini Noodles with Shrimp & Cashews

Garlicky Shrimp on Zucchini Noodles


  • 6 zucchini, washed
  • 450 grams (1 lb) shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon chili flakes
  • the juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, finely chopped


  1. Using a spiral slicer, cut the zucchini into noodles and place them into a colander over a bowl or in the sink.
  2. Sprinkle the zucchini with salt and toss to combine. Let the zucchini sit for 15 minutes while the salt extracts the moisture.
  3. Meanwhile, combine garlic, paprika, chili flakes,lemon juice, and shrimp in a bowl and mix well.
  4. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. When the pan is hot, add the shrimp and season with salt and pepper. Saute until the shrimp change color.
  5. Rinse the zucchini under running water to remove the salt and dry on paper towels.
  6. Add the zucchini noodles and parsley to the garlic shrimp, toss to coat and serve.
  7. Enjoy!
