15 Minute Garlic Shrimp Zoodles

Zoodles = zucchini noodles. They are an incredibly delicious way to substitute for low carb meals, or sneak in more veggies for your kids. You can buy zoodles, or use a spiralizer to make your own. Either way, they’re a great alternative for pasta!

How do I keep my zoodles from getting watery?

The easiest way to do this is to simply pat your zoodles dry with a paper towel. In addition, you can sprinkle with salt and let them sweat for about 30 minutes. Then, toss them with your hands and gently squeeze. Do this a couple times, and you will notice more water on the plate. Also, get rid of the “seedy” noodles. These hold more moisture.
