Lemon Garlic Shrimp with Creamy Avocado Zucchini Noodles

I LOVE zucchini! I know love is a strong word, but it perfectly describe the way I feel about zucchini. I love it! This recipe was inspired by pinterest. I saw a post on shrimp, a post on avocado cream sauce, and a different post on zucchini noodles in the same day. My brain clumped it all together and this was the end result. Totally yum-mo!

Lemon Garlic Shrimp with Creamy Avocado Zucchini Noodles

Ingredients (Shrimp):

12-15 Medium Shrimp

1 Lemon Juice

3 Cloves Garlic (minced)

1/4 Olive Oil

Salt, Pepper, Parsley, Thyme…

Ingredients (Noodles):

1 Zucchini

1 Avocado

1 Lime

2 tsp Vinegar

2 tsp Oil

Salt, Pepper, Cayenne Pepper, Onion Powder…


Preheat oven to 400. In a sealable container, combine all shrimp ingredients until shrimp are thoroughly coated with ingredients. Pour contents into an oven safe container and bake for 10-12 minutes until shrimp are thoroughly cooked. Remove from oven.

While Shrimp are in oven, take zucchini and with a sharp knife carefully slice zucchini lengthwise in the form of long noodles. Oil pan and on medium heat cook “noodles” until zucchini appears noodle like in motion. While noodles are cooking, in small bowl mix avocado, lime juice, oil, vinegar, and spices. Blend until smooth. Once noodles are cooked, toss in avocado sauce and once shrimp are cooked top with shrimp. Enjoy!
