Spiralize your zucchini or set aside a package of store-bought spiralized zucchini.

Remove the Trifecta Shrimp from the container and rinse, set aside. 

For the garlic use a microplane or grater instead of trying to cut it up with your knife. This is a great trick when a recipe calls for a lot of garlic!
