About this recipe: A quick and easy, comforting dinner made with prawns, fresh spinach and courgetti instead of pasta.
Absolutely gorgeous and surprisingly filling. I served it with pan seared baby gem lettuce on the side. - 01 Sep 2016
This was fabulous! Here are some tips to make the most out of this meal: 1) I used 2 green and 2 yellow squash. I did this for flavor, nutrition and color. In my opinion, using only 2 will not be enough. 2) I cooked the garlic and onions alone first for 5 min on medium-low to enhance the garlic flavor and the onions would be soft. 3) I then added the zoodles and cooked for only 2 min. Squash has a high water content and cooking for 5 min. will make them sweat and get mushy. I really just wanted to blend the flavor together because I knew they would be added back to pan later with the shrimp. 4) Off to the side, i marinated the shrimp in the garlic, lemon, salt, crushed pepper and a little EVOO in advance while I prepped and cooked everything else (like 15-20 min). I think this makes a world of a difference rather than seasoning straight in the pan. Hubby and I licked our plates clean! Also an alternative for those who don't have a spiralizer is to use a julienne peeler. It's more time consuming, yet it's something most of us have handy so you don't have to run to the store and buy another gadget. - 08 Apr 2016 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Used my spiralizer for the first time on this recipe. Everyone loved it! Added a touch of parmesian on my dish just to try it, tasted great. On another section of the dish I tried a light sprinkle of Old Bay. Brings a whole new meaning to the dish. Just tryng different things since I'm starting a whole new adventure in cooking. - 02 Apr 2016 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
