Healthy and simple, this Skinnytaste Zoodles with Shrimp and Feta recipe comes together in just 15 minutes!


Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 12 peeled and deveined jumbo shrimp (1/2 pound)
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 medium zucchini (14 ounces total), spiralized using the thick setting and cut into 6-inch lengths
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 ounces crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon grated lemon zest

Instructions

  1. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 teaspoon of the oil over medium-high heat. Season the shrimp with 1/2 teaspoon of the oregano, 1/8 teaspoon of the salt, and pepper to taste. Add the shrimp to the skillet and cook until they are just opaque, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.
  2. Heat the remaining 1 teaspoon oil in the same skillet and add the garlic. Cook, stirring, until golden, 30 to 60 seconds (be careful not to burn it). Add the zucchini noodles, the remaining 1/2 teaspoon oregano, the remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt, and pepper to taste. Cook, stirring, until the zucchini is crisp-tender, 1 1/2 minutes. Add the lemon juice, stir and remove the pan from heat.
  3. Divide the noodles between 2 plates. Dividing evenly, top with the shrimp, feta, and lemon zest. Serve hot.
