Zucchini Noodles with Creamy Avocado Pesto Sauce and Shrimp

zoodles

Hi Loves, 

I wanted to share this super easy and delicious recipe I made for a local market. The zoodles (zucchini noodles ) came out so so creamy and the pesto sauce gives it a different touch. I used shrimp for this recipe, but any other protein source will go great with this dish. 


 ZUCCHINI NOODLES WITH CREAMY AVOCADO AND PESTO SAUCE AND SHRIMP

 

Ingredients:

  • 5-6 medium zucchini
  • 1 pound raw shrimp
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon of extra-virgin olive oil 
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste 
  • The Marketplace house prepared pesto

Directions:

1 .Using a spiral vegetable slicer or a vegetable peeler, cut zucchini lengthwise into long, thin strands or strips. 

2. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Add shrimp, garlic salt, and pepper stirring occasionally, until the shrimp is almost cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes. 

3. Add the zucchini noodles and gently toss until hot, about 3 minutes. Transfer to the bowl, add the pesto, avocado and gently toss to combine.
