Directions

1. To prepare this lemon garlic butter shrimp recipe with zucchini noodles: Wash and trim the ends of the zucchini. Make the zucchini pasta using a spiralizer or julienne peeler and set aside.

2. Heat 1 tablespoon oil and 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp in one layer and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook shrimp for one minute without stirring, so the bottom of the shrimps get slightly browned.

3. Add the chopped garlic, Italian seasoning, and red pepper flakes and then stir the shrimp for another minute or two to cook shrimp the other side. Transfer the grilled shrimp to a shallow plate.

4. In the same pan, add remaining butter, lemon juice, chicken or vegetable stock, and hot sauce to the pan. Bring the sauce to a simmer for 2-3 minutes, stirring regularly.

5. Stir in the zucchini noodles and cook until done, about 2 minutes, stirring regularly. Allow the sauce to reduce a bit if it’s too watery. Add the grilled shrimp back to the pan and stir for another minute. Serve immediately your shrimp zucchini noodles with lemon slices, extra parsley, and pepper. Enjoy!

QUICK TIPS FOR MAKING LEMON GARLIC BUTTER SHRIMP:

  • This shrimp recipe cooks FAST, over-cooked shrimp is rubbery, tough and not pleasant to eat at all.
  • You can use all butter if you like, but we do prefer the flavor of a butter/oil mixture for this shrimp recipe.
  • Prefer extra-large or jumbo shrimp. They’re meaty and juicy!
  • Buy shrimp (or prawns) already deveined, shelled and cleaned, and you have yourself such an easy recipe to prepare.
  • Frozen shrimp is okay for this recipe but try as much as possible to buy wild-caught shrimp. fresh wild-caught shrimp tends to have better flavor.
  • You can use shrimp with tails on or off.
  • Sometimes, zucchini noodles tend to render some water while cooking, so you can sprinkle zucchini pasta with salt and let sit in a colander while you’re cooking shrimp. Press with your hands to remove excess water; then rinse and drain thoroughly before adding to the pan.
