2) Shrimp Scampi with Carrots & Yellow Zucchini
Here’s an easy recipe for shrimp lovers. Start with a pound of cleaned raw shrimp. It’s okay to leave the tails on because they add flavor, but remove them before serving. Dice one large yellow zucchini. Peel one large carrot and cut into thin slices. Alternatively, you can use frozen carrots in a pinch. Dice up a few cloves of garlic and add them to a skillet with some olive oil and butter. When the garlic begins to heat up stir and add the carrots and zucchini. Add a sprinkle of fresh parsley, with a dash of salt and pepper. Cook until tender, then add the shrimp. Be careful not to over cook the shrimp. You’ll know it’s ready when the shrimp turns completely pink. If you are using shrimp which has been previously cooked, sauté it into the vegetables until it’s heated. Serve over angel hair pasta, or thin linguine.
