Directions

1. Wash, pat dry and trim the ends of zucchini. Make the noodles using a spiralizer or a julienne peeler.

2. In a large skillet over medium heat, melt 2 tablespoons butter. Add lemon juice, hot sauce, minced garlic, and red pepper flakes (if you want).

3. Add the zucchini noodles and cook for 3 or 4 minutes, stirring regularly to coat in the butter sauce, until zucchini is done but still crisp and juices have reduced a bit. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper and garnish with more cilantro or parsley if you like. Serve immediately with a lemon slice on the side. Enjoy!

Note: Zucchini tends to render some water when cooking, so you can sprinkle with salt after spiralizing and allow to sit for a couple of minutes to drain off excess water. Rinse well to get rid of salt and drain thoroughly in a colander and pat dry before cooking.
