Zucchini noodles with shrimps

Here is a very light dish to stop feeling guilty after long and generous Summer “apéritif”s … I’ve made it several times during our holiday in Puglia and, each time, everyone loved it! It’s easy to make, quick and rather aesthetical;)

Let’s cook!


Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 5 minutes (3min + 2 min)

Ingredients for 4 people :

  • 150g medium or small shrimp (3-4 per person)
  • 3 medium zucchini
  • 15 cl white wine (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • Fresh parsley
  • Salt & pepper

Wash the courgettes, but keep the skin. Using a mandoline, cut them into thin strips. Leave aside.


Shell the shrimp. Crush a clove of garlic and fry it gently with some olive oil. Then fry the shrimps for 2-3 minutes. Keep them apart. Deglaze the juices with white wine and cook the zucchini for 2 minutes, no more. Salt and pepper.

Place the zucchini on a plate, then put the shrimp on top of them. Sprinkle with finely chopped parsley. There you go!! You can eat this dish warm, as a starter,  or as main course if you want a light meal;)

Happy holidays and see you next week for a postabout  our family friendly tipd and addresses in Salento (Italy)
