Spicy Shrimp with Zucchini Noodles

Spicy Shrimp with Zucchini Noodles (great for all phases)

Spicy Shrimp with Zucchini NoodlesIngredients:

8 medium zucchinis

1 lb shrimp (16 pieces), peeled and deveined, tails on

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 shallot, finely sliced

1 1/2 teaspoons chile sauce, like a sriracha sauce

Freshly ground black pepper

cilantro, chopped

basil, thinly sliced (chifonnade) (optional)

 

Directions:

Bring a medium pot full of water to a boil. Salt generously.

Using a julienne peeler or mandoline, create ribbons of zucchini noodles. Blanch the zucchini briefly in the boiling water, for about 2 minutes, until just wilted. Drain the zucchini noodles and set both the vegetables and water aside.

In a saute pan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add the shallots and cook until just translucent. Add shrimp, chile sauce,  and a little black pepper, to taste. Stirring frequently, cook until the shrimp is just cooked through and pink, about 3 minutes. At the tail end of the cooking process, stir in about 1/4 cup of the reserved water to create a sauce, . Serve the shrimp on a bed of zucchini noodles, and drizzle with the pan sauce. Garnish with cilantro and basil (if desired), and enjoy!
