how do I know when my shrimp is cooked?

When it’s cooked, it should be opaque white with some pink and bright red accents. This is the best indicator of whether or not shrimp is fully cooked. Do not eat the shrimp if it is gray or translucent after cooking.

Cut down on the carbs by using Spiralized Zucchini  ( Zoodles ) in place of actual pasta and have no guilt when you have this for lunch or dinner.

Zoodles are an incredibly fresh and healthy alternative to pasta. Zoodles are a fun way to increase the number of vegetables we eat, especially children.

recipe notes and tips

  • The best way to defrost frozen shrimp is in a colander in the refrigerator overnight. 
  • Tossing the raw shrimp in baking soda before cooking gives the shrimp a firm, snappy texture
  • Serve with zoodles, or regular pasta, with a simple green salad or crusty bread.
  • Take care not to overcook the shrimp or they’ll become rubbery.
