Ready for a little break from the heavy holiday meals? This one is fresh, light, and a delicious change of taste I think you’re really going to like…
There’s only so much leftover turkey and stuffing you can stuff yourself with. I reached my limit a few days ago. That’s when I started thinking about something on the lighter side that would be healthy and tasty, and it also had to be pretty easy to make.
This shrimp and zucchini noodles paleo recipe is the complete opposite of heavy holiday food. It’s a light seafood and vegetable dish that tastes every bit as good as it looks.
Great by itself, or you can add a side salad and you’ve got yourself an easy and elegant meal to serve to family and friends. We made this up quickly and I’m really happy with the combination of flavors this one gives you in every bite.
It’s a delicious mix of bright pesto sauce and pan-cooked lemon garlic shrimp, served over steaming zucchini noodles to keep it paleo.
I used my julienne peeler to make the zucchini noodles, but I really want a spiral slicer. Those things are awesome, and now that I noodle up zucchini all the time, it’s practically become a must-have in my kitchen. It’s on my Christmas wish list Santa, hint, hint. :)
If you want to skip the zucchini noodles for this dish, that’s OK. You can just pan fry the marinated shrimp and serve alongside a steak or other steamed or grilled veggies for an awesome meal.
Hope you give this one a try…something nice and light and so good for you too!
