Who’s ready for that summer diet?

Yeah, me neither. My wedding diet went out the window months ago so I probably won’t get around to that summer diet either.

But, I can definitely incorporate some zucchini noodles here instead of that carb-loaded pasta without compromising any kind of taste or flavor.

Really.

I mean, hello, it’s low-carb goodness! And we have garlicky, buttery zucchini noodles topped with the most perfect pan-seared lemon garlic shrimp.

So no, we’re not calling this diet food. It’s just super skinny and super buttery and super quick with the shortest ingredient list of all.
