First things first!

Lets get the noodles ready.  Wash two medium zucchini and we can spiralize them several different ways.  You can use a manual or electric spiralizer.  You can also use your vegetable peeler, but with this you will peel off the skin first and then using the peeler, shave the zucchini off one peel at a time, getting long thick “noodles” from the zucchini that way.  I’ll show pictures of the spiralizer I use below.

After you have spiralized your zucchini, be sure and blot out all extra moisture.  I use a clean dish towel or paper towels.  A lot of moisture comes out of these during cooking, but if you “dry” the meat of the zoodles before cooking, you’ll have a better texture.

Using fresh shrimp?  Here is a great site that gives step by step instructions on how to shell and de vein your shrimp.   https://ourbestbites.com/2014/07/how-to-devein-shrimp-quickly-cook-them/
