Can you cook zucchini Noodles ahead of time?

I don’t recommend actually cooking the zucchini noodles ahead. My experience with this is that they get soggy especially if you overcook them. But you can prepare the zoodles for this Asian Shrimp Zucchini Noodles Recipe ahead if you want to. Meaning you can spiralize them and place over some napkins. Sprinkle some salt over them and let them sit for about 30 minutes. Then transfer them into a container and use when you are ready. They stay fresh in the fridge for about 2-3 days

How to prevent Soggy Zucchini Noodles:

Here are a few tips on how you can make your zucchini noodles not soggy. First, do not overcook the zoodles. If you cook for more than 2 minutes they do get soggy. For this Asian Shrimp Zucchini Noodles Recipe, I tossed it in with the stir fry for about a minute. I love my zoodles to be a bit crunchy.

Also, Once you spiralize the zucchini, place in a colander, sprinkle some salt on them and rub down. Leave it for about 10 minutes for some of the moisture to drain. Or you can place on a paper towel instead.

    This recipe is amazing
    Even though I didn’t have cornstarch. I just used some potato flakes.
    Even my hubby loved it!

      You technically can but am afraid the frozen zoodles will be a bit more watery. Thaw out first and drain. I would say about 4 cups. One cup for each serving.

    Made this for dinner tonight, but did a tuna steak instead of shrimp because that’s what I had at hand and used butternut squash noodles instead of zuchini and carrots. It turned out great! The sauce is so flavorful and the pepper and onion add a very good touch to the noodles.

    Thanks for the great recipe! I will forsure be making this again, but next time shrimp!
