Thai Shrimp with Zucchini Noodles

Warmed-Pesto-Shrimp-Zucchini-Pasta-5Yield: 2 large servings

Prep Time: 15 min

Cook Time: 10 min


1 Tablespoons Olive Oil

1 Tablespoons Ginger Oil

1 Pound Large Shrimp, Shelled and Deveined (We Like A Lot Of Shrimp At Our House ^_^)

2 Tablespoon Minced Garlic

1/2 Tablespoon Minced Ginger

1/2 Tablespoon Curry Powder

1/2 Cup Button Mushrooms

1/4 Teaspoon Crushed Red Pepper Flakes

Salt and Pepper

1/4 Cup White Wine

2 Tablespoons Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice

2 Medium Zucchini, Cut Into Noodles

Use Fresh or Dried Dill or Parsley, for Garnish


Place a large sauté pan over medium-low heat. Pour the olive and ginger oil into the pan and heat it for 1 minute. Add the garlic, ginger, crushed red pepper flakes, and cook them for close to a minute, stirring constantly.

Add the shrimp to the pan and sauté them, stirring as needed, until they are cooked throughout and pink on all sides, (this takes about 3 or 4 minutes). Season the shrimp with salt and pepper and then using a slotted spoon, remove them from the pan, leaving any liquid behind.

Increase the heat to medium and add the white wine and lemon juice to the pan. Using a wooden spoon (my cooking weapon of choice), scrape any brown bits from the bottom of the pan, cooking the wine and lemon juice for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the zucchini noodles, mushrooms and curry powder and continue cooking. Stir occasionally, for 3 minutes. Return the shrimp to the pan and toss to combine ingredients. Season the mixture with salt and pepper, garnish with dill or parsley and serve immediately.
