In recent years, zucchini noodles have become a healthy alternative to carb-based noodles and pasta.
Everyone loves zucchini, and when you make the zucchini into spiralized noodles, they become something absolutely delightful to the palate.
A few weeks ago, I shared my honey sriracha chicken zucchini noodles recipe, but this brown butter cilantro lime shrimp zoodles is definitely my new favorite.
Again, do not cook the zoodles, they are much better when served raw.
The heat from the shrimp will cook the zoodles slightly so your zoodles will have the perfect texture of crispness and freshness.
