Directions

1. Place zucchini in a colander over the sink. Add salt and gently toss to combine and let sit for 10 minutes to drain excess water from zucchini. In the meantime, combine the salsa ingredients in a salad bowl and set aside.

2. In a large pot of boiling water, cook zucchini for 30 seconds to 1 minute; drain well and set aside.

3. In a medium skillet, heat olive and saute garlic and ginger for 2 minutes; then add shrimp, cumin, and Cayenne pepper, and cook for 3 minutes on each side until cooked through. Season with black pepper and deglaze with lime juice, remove from the skillet and set aside.

4. To make the dressing, whisk together lime juice, Greek yogurt, olive oil, cumin, salt, and pepper. Divide into small airtight containers to carry along the meal prep boxes.
